AT&T subscribers looking for a new Lumia smartphone who don’t want to pony up $300 for a killer camera — or $200, if you live in one of the markets BGR exclusively revealed to be running Lumia 1020 sales right now — the carrier will soon have a great new option for you. Nokia’s Lumia 925 smartphone will launch next month at AT&T for just $99.99 on contract, the same price Nokia’s Lumia 920 and Lumia 900 debuted at last year. Spec highlights include an 8.7-megapixel PureView camera, a 4.5-inch AMOLED display (334 ppi), a dual-core Snapdragon processor and a 2,000 mAh battery good for 6.6 hours of continuous video playback per charge. Preorders for the Lumia 925 begin on August 28th and the phone will be available online and in AT&T stores beginning September 13th. AT&T’s full press release follows below. More →
Aggressively mocking Apple has worked wonders for Samsung and Nokia looks like it’s trying to capture some of Samsung’s magic by releasing an iPhone-bashing ad of its own. In a new ad released this week, Nokia compares the quality of pictures taken with the iPhone 5 to pictures taken with the Lumia 925, which unsurprisingly look vastly better than Apple’s smartphone both with and without using flashes. Of course, it’s questionable whether focussing entirely on the Lumia 925’s camera quality without even once showing any other features will be enough to draw iOS and Android users to Nokia’s flagship phones.

Nokia on Tuesday unveiled its new Lumia 925 smartphone during a press conference in London. The struggling vendor’s new Windows Phone beats the same drum yet again in a number of ways, though there are a few notable changes this time around.

The phone also includes Nokia’s enhanced PureView with improved low-light shooting, and while Instagram still isn’t available for Windows Phone 8, the Lumia 925 includes a new “Smart Camera” function and it comes preloaded along with the popular photo filter app Hipstagram.
