Nokia continued its Nokia Lumia story yesterday in London by announcing the first Windows Phone to be packed into an aluminum frame. This of course, follows the earlier announcement this month of the US-only Lumia 928.

The Lumia 925 is said to have a thiner 8.8mm profile, 2000Ah Battery, the same dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAN and 8.7-megapixel OIS camera as seen on the 920.

One of the main selling points of the Lumia range has to be the camera tech which Nokia has continued to develop over the years, but the Lumia 925 concentrates on software. Software such as the Smart Cam: a new camera app that takes 10 images in a burst and then offers the user several options for using them. Best Shot: which picks out an algorithm-based winner. Action Shot: This app combines several images of a moving object to create a stop-motion single shot and then there’s Motion Focus: this adds a simple motion blur to everything that is not moving.

Unfortunately, with the 925, instead of built-in wireless charging users will have to purchase an accessory cover to enable the function (due to the aluminum shell). Nokia said covers will come in red, yellow, black and white. Screen resolution on the 925 also matches that of the 920 (4,5-inch AMOLED) (1,280×768) but this time its coated with Gorilla Glass 2 and ClearBlack tech with a high-brightness mode for best outdoor visibility.

The Lumia 925 will launch in parts of Europe through a Vofadone partnership in June. We’re told it’ll eventually reach other markets shortly after that.
