In order to expand its smartphone portfolio, AT&T Inc. (T - Analyst Report) – one of the leading carriers in the U.S. – plans to introduce the new Nokia Corporation’s (NOK - Analyst Report) Lumia 925 smartphone. Priced at $99.99, the handset is expected to hit the AT&T stores by Sep 13, 2013 with a two-year contract. In fact, presales are expected to begin from today.

Nokia Lumia 925 is based on the Windows 8 platform and has a 4.5 inch AMOLED WXGA touchscreen. It also features an 8.7 MP PureView camera supporting HD video recordings and optical image stabilization. The device is powered with Qualcomm Inc.’s (QCOM - Analyst Report) 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and well supported with 16 GB internal memory.

Under AT&T’s Next plan, the subscribers have to pay $21 per month to get Lumia 925. After T-Mobile US, Inc. (TMUS - Snapshot Report), AT&T will launch a slimmer version of the Lumia flagship phone. However, AT&T will be selling an exclusive black colored Lumia 925 unlike T-Mobile US’ silver and white handsets.

AT&T was the first carrier in the country to launch Nokia’s first LTE-based Window smartphone, Nokia Lumia 900. Thus, with Lumia 925, AT&T will have all Lumia flagship phones in its portfolio.

AT&T continues to support its 4GLTE deployment plan with an extended 4GLTE handset line-up. Hence, we believe that the availability of such strong popular 4GLTE-based smartphones will continue to expand the subscriber base of the company. Moreover, such a high-end smartphone line-up with a two-year service contract will accelerate service revenues, going forward.

Currently, AT&T Inc. has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).
