Nokia's recently launched Lumia 925 is set to make its way to consumers all over the world.

The Windows Phone 8-powered Lumia 925 is expected to hit the UK shelves in June itself, and now a British retailer has disclosed the exact date of release –– June 12.

The retailer in question is Digital Phone Company and is asking £589.99 (approximately $895) for the SIM-free variant of the Lumia 925. The smartphone is up for pre-order on the retailer and the "stock is due" on June 12 per the retailer's website.

Alternately, those who do not want a SIM-free variant of the Lumia 925 have the option to choose from various plans from either Vodafone or T-Mobile in the UK, which start from £42 per month and the handset is free.

The Lumia 925 features a 4.5-inch HD AMOLED display with 1280 x 768 resolution and 334 pixels per inch (ppi). The Nokia smartphone is made of polycarbonate, but has an aluminum side frame which also doubles up as the antenna.

The Lumia 925 also touts an 8.7-megapixel primary camera with Carl Zeiss lens, dual LED flash and OIS. The WP8 smartphone is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and packs in a 2000mAh battery.

The Nokia smartphone has been priced steeply when compared to rival smartphone offerings that are in the same league. By comparison, the unlocked version of the Samsung's flagship Galaxy S4 touts a price tag from £552 (about $835) in the UK, while the iPhone 5 is pegged at £529 (approximately $801).

Carrier O2 is also slated to sell the Lumia 925 and will offer the exclusive white edition. The Lumia 925 is expected to hit Germany, Italy, Spain and China first and then make its way to other regions, including the U.S.

Germany will allegedly get the 4.5-inch Lumia 925 two days before the UK on June 10. In the U.S., the Nokia smartphone will be a T-Mobile exclusive and could make its way to consumers in June as well.
