Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK) announced the Lumia 925 smartphone at its London event on Tuesday morning. The phone won't feature built-in wireless charging as previously rumored, but the specs do include a 4.5-inch aluminum body and an upgraded camera.

The Nokia Lumia 925 will be exclusive to T-Mobile customers and release sometime this summer.

Nokia didn't announce an enormous 41-megapixel sensor for the device, as IBTimes previously reported as a potential feature. Instead, the Helsinki-based manufacturer debuted a device with a slimmer body than previous models and dual-LED flash. The body is partly made of aluminum, but the Lumia 925 has a polycarbonate backplate, unlike the single-piece construction of the iPhone 5 and HTC One.

Nokia has seen its market share slip in the first quarter, and hopes to turn the tide with a series of carrier exclusives like the Lumia 925, which touts great photos even in low light, and the Verizon-exclusive Lumia 928.

The Lumia 925 has an ultra-sensitive OLED screen that will respond to a long fingernail or gloved hand, much like its Verizon Wireless counterpart. The device will run on Windows Phone 8 and has an 8.7-megapixel camera with six Carl Zeiss lenses as well as a slew of new software features.

A “remove moving object” feature in the Lumia 925 gives mobile photographers the ability to remove objects from the photo, such as random people that accidentally walk into your frame, and the phone can also snap action shots that combine a series of movements into one image. With the “Change Faces” feature in the Lumia 925, users take multiple shots of a group and choose the best facial expressions from the bunch, combining them into one image.


As far as Lumia 925 accessories go, Nokia will sell multicolored covers separately from the phone to give it wireless charging capabilities.
