The Nokia Lumia 925 (see more of Nokia Lumia 925 here) has first landed in Germany. The handset also comes with a surprise feature, Glance Screen. The new feature was detailed on Nokia Conversations (see it here), the Finnish firm’s official blog.

On the blog, Nokia says, “The recently launched Nokia Lumia 925 goes on sale for the first time today in Germany, with other European markets, China, U.S. and other countries worldwide to follow.”

Speaking about the new feature, Nokia says, “As a surprise, we’re now introducing a beta version of a long anticipated feature, the clock on the standby screen. After receiving a large number of requests to bring back this favourite feature, it now comes as part of the Nokia Glance Screen, included first on the Lumia 925.

“The Nokia Glance Screen also notifies you when your battery level is low, and you can switch on a night mode for reduced glare in the dark. Double tapping the screen will make it easier to unlock the phone, even when the phone is on a wireless charging stand, car holder or on the table. As it currently is a beta version, you can always select to turn the Nokia Glance Screen off in Settings by selecting ‘display & touch’ and ‘glance screen’.”

The good news is the new feature will make its way to other Lumia handsets. Nokia says, “Once the commercial version of the Nokia Glance Screen is released, it will become available to most Windows Phone 8 powered Lumia smartphones in conjunction with the upcoming Lumia Amber software update.”
