Nokia unveiled its latest smartphone Tuesday, the shiny but powerful Lumia 925, a variation of its flagship model that will debut with T-Mobile.

The Lumia 925 is a silver Windows Phone 8 device with a metal and polycarbonate body. The device is much lighter and thinner than the Lumia 920 and the Lumia 928, the AT&T and Verizon versions of Nokia's flagship smartphone.

Nokia said the 16-gigabyte smartphone uses a 1.5-gigahertz, dual-core Snapdragon processor and features an 8.7-megapixel camera that uses Nokia's PureView technology, which is designed to let users take high-quality low-light images and stable action shots. The display on the device is a 4.5-inch, 720p HD screen.

The phone will be sold exclusively through T-Mobile, but the carrier did not say when it will be available. Instead, T-Mobile said users can sign up to be informed by email as more information becomes available. Nokia said the phone would cost about $608 before any carrier subsidy.

The Lumia 925 is Nokia's first Lumia smartphone to feature a metal design. Users can customize it by switching out its polycarbonate back cover with a yellow, red, white or black cover.

The new device is the second major phone unveiled recently by Nokia. Last week, the company announced the Lumia 928, which comes out this week.
