Nokia's Lumia 925 passes through certification in China

Lumia 925

Nokia's latest flagship Windows Phone, which joins the Lumia 920 and recently announced Verizon exclusive Lumia 928, has passed through certification in China. The Lumia 925 is a highly anticipated Lumia smartphone that introduces a new design with many elements that differentiates the device from the already established Lumia 920. With the Windows Phone heading to China as well as other markets, Nokia will be pushing the high-end mobile phones hard this year.

Both certifications in China have been acquired. The first being CCC (China Compulsory Certificate) and the second is by the TENAA regulator, which is more like a Chinese version of FCC. What does this all mean for consumers in the region? There shouldn't be a delay to the rumoured launch of June. The launch price is said to be CNY 3,999 (US$ 653) and it's believed the Lumia 925 will be available on China Mobile and China Unicom. No word on the "Lumia 925T" for China Mobile just yet.

While we wait for Nokia to make the launch official and announce pricing and dates of availability, it's positive to see the company taking the Chinese market seriously.

Black looks better then the silver I think

tkay564 says:

I would like to get me a silver one with a black back plate. Possible?

ahuczek says:

thats exactly what i want. the contrast of the bright aluminum w the black would look great. 

Josh Harman says:

Passed certification in China? What does that require? A coating of lead paint, spyware, gov't kill switch and a kick back?

Spedez says:

Lol. You nailed it.

kenan3cn says:

What does passing FCC certification in the US require then?

nube_android says:

The FCC probably pays them to install a "Patriot act chip."
Because our safety is that important.

wpguy says:

No need for special chips since last year. Everyone, everywhere, everything.

dynamic_cast says:

same thing I guess

turisz says:

Is there any certifications in China? Maybe their stuff don't pass through.

Flavio76 says:

Maybe it is the same standards as have elsewhere, but with the seal approve of the Chinese regulators. Same thing happens in others countries as well.

mrnavkhan says:

Wpcentral always slow to getting good news

b3rni3703 says:

Pretty sure this version will UNDOUBTEDLY come with an exclusive Chinese Restaurant / Carry-Out Locator built in.

Pretty easy job actually, by definition pretty much every restaurant in China is Chinese...
