It appears that Nokia could soon launch the Lumia 925 in India. The phone is up for preorder at an e-commerce website for Rs 33,999, and the listing says that the estimated release is in the fourth week of August. The Lumia 925 is an interesting smartphone because internally, it does not represent a giant step above the Lumia 920, but externally, for the first time Nokia has made a Lumia smartphone with an aluminium frame. From the back though, the Lumia 925 retains a polycarbonate cap. Also Read - Nokia Clarity, Comfort, Micro, Go Earbuds Series with ANC launched: Price, features

On the software front the Lumia 925 will be the first Nokia smartphone to ship in India with the Window Phone 8 Amber update. This includes the upgraded Nokia Here maps stack, a glance feature and a new smart camera app. The phone will also be eligible to get the Nokia Pro camera app seen on the Lumia 1020.
It also happens to be the lightest and thinnest Lumia smartphone at 8.5mm and users can latch on a wireless charging cover to enable wireless charging on the device. Previously, the Lumia 920 had wireless charging built-in from the get go, but Nokia opted to remove it from the 925, in order to make it thinner and lighter.
