Nokia's top-shelf smartphone, the Lumia 925, will join AT&T's portfolio of products next month. While pre-orders will begin on August 28, the device will ship on September 13. Even though the Lumia 925 is among Nokia's very best smartphones right now, AT&T will be selling it at the tempting price of $99.99 on contract. If you'd rather like to purchase the Nokia Lumia 925 with AT&T's Next plan, the price per month will be $21.
The unique aspect of the Lumia 925 is that it's quite thin and features a classy metal frame. The screen of the phone has a sizable diagonal of 4.5", while resolution is 768x1280 pixels. This doesn't come very close to the 1080p smartphones like the Galaxy S4 or the HTC One, but the pixel density of 334 ppi will be more than sufficient to guarantee a comfortable viewing experience. The chipset under the hood is the dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus, which isn't a particularly fancy piece of silicon, but is more than capable of running Windows Phone 8 smoothly and efficiently.
You will be able to pre-order the Nokia Lumia 925 right here, starting August 28.

“AT&T has sold more Windows Phones than any other U.S. carrier and the Nokia Lumia 925 makes a great addition to our growing portfolio,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president- Devices, AT&T. “It packs the outstanding camera performance Nokia is known for with an affordable price point that makes it a solid deal for anyone in the market for a new smartphone.”
The Lumia 925 continues Nokia’s tradition of offering outstanding optics and camera features. Its 8.7-megapixel PureView camera sensor includes Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), advanced Carl Zeiss optics, and six lenses so you get great photos even in low light. It also features a dedicated camera button so you never miss a shot.
Other impressive camera functions include:
Nokia Pro Camera app lets you manually adjust flash, focus, ISO, shutter speed, white balance and exposure. Nokia Smart Camera captures a series of 10 shots and gives you the opportunity to edit your photos using a range of effects: Best Shot takes several shots so you can choose your favorite one. It also suggests shots that have the best and sharpest frame. Action Shot takes one photo that shows a sequence of movement in a single image. Motion Focus creates an effect that the subject of your photo is moving at super speed by keeping the subject still and blurring the background. Unlike other cameras, with the Lumia 925 you don’t have to physically move or follow the action to create a motion blur photo. Change Faces combines your favorite expressions from a series of shots into a single perfect group photo. Remove Moving Object lets you erase unwanted details from your photos.
You can even record distortion-free stereo sound with deep bass using the High Dynamic range microphones and capture HD video in 1080p.
