Ending months of speculation over materials, Nokia has finally taken the covers off the Lumia 925 -- the first of its Windows Phone devices made with metal, rather than purely from polycarbonate plastic.

It's not all metal, however -- that back panel is still made from plastic.

The 4.5-inch screen is an OLED affair that looks bright and bold. It seemed pretty reflective under the bright lights of the conference room, though.

On the top you'll find the 3.5mm headphone jack as well as the micro-USB port.

It's a good-looking phone, but would you rather have this or the all-metal HTC One?

The back panel isn't removable, so you can't swap out the battery.

Those small pins are for a wireless charging case.

The buttons on the side are made from metal, too.

It's much slimmer than the chunky Lumia 920.

It's lighter than the 920, too, making it more comfortable to hold in one hand.

The whole surrounding edge is metal. Nokia promises "excellent" reception -- let's hope there's no 'antenna-gate' issue like we saw on the iPhone 4.

The camera unit is raised slightly from the back. It's nowhere near as bulky as the PureView 808's camera though.

You'll spy a dual LED flash, too. Sadly, there isn't the powerful xenon flash you'll find on the Lumia 928.

Navigation is still done using the touch-sensitive keys on the front.

The interface is the same as you'll see on other devices running the latest version of Windows Phone.

There's an 8.7-megapixel camera on the back. That's the same resolution as the Lumia 920 and 928.

You can choose the SmartCam mode from the Lenses menu, or set the phone to launch it automatically when you press the shutter button.

The SmartCam mode takes a burst of 10 photos at once.

What happens if you take a photo of a group of friends and one of them has their eyes closed?

You can simply swap their face out for one where they look better!

SmartCam also lets you combine images into an action sequence. We've seen this feature already on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One -- we'll have to wait and see how good Nokia's version is.

You can also add motion blur to moving subjects to make them seem like they're travelling at 200 miles an hour.

You'll need a case if you want to use wireless charging. It's a shame it's not built in as standard, like on the 920.

The cases are pretty slim, so won't bulge your pocket out too much.

You, too, could ruin the sleek aluminium body by slapping a garish, red plastic case around it.
