Contrary to some reports that said otherwise, Nokia has gone on and announced the Lumia 930 at the BUILD 2014 developer conference, labeling it as “the Best of Microsoft and Lumia”.
Which is another way of saying that this is the new flagship smartphone in the successful lineup.
The company has made a few notable changes to the hardware, and this Windows Phone 8.1 powered device comes with the best in class hardware, including an impressive 20 megapixel PureView camera, four high-quality microphones that allow directional recording in an aluminum frame.
Here is a flashy little video that showcases the smartphone:
Under the hood you get a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor that is paired with a solid 2GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage capacity.
No microSD card, however, though users do get 7GB of free cloud storage via OneDrive.
The display, on the other hand, is absolutely gorgeous with 5-inch full HD capacitive touchscreen display with a 1920 by 1080 resolution and pixel density of 441ppi. It also features the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 coating to go with its Super Sensitive Touch technology.
But that is to be expected — this is a top of the line smartphone, after all.
The Lumia 930 looks quite similar to the Lumia 925 down to its polycarbonate back cover. Color options come in as bright orange, bright green, black and white. Wireless charging is also included.
Nokia has confirmed that the smartphone will be available for purchase for $600, before taxes and subsides. It goes on sale in Europe, Asia, Middle East, Latin America and India from June. No mention of United States, interestingly.
