I guess we can peg this on the delayed arrival of Windows Phone 8.1. The new version of Microsoft’s mobile operating system was primed to be here by the third quarter of last year.
And with it, were expected a whole new family of Nokia Lumia devices — with the Lumia 930 taking its place as the new flagship of the refreshed range.
But the postponed entrance of the new mobile OS not only meant that Nokia (and other Windows Phone hardware partners) had to dillydally with minor refreshes, but no new announcements were made last month at the mobile event of the year, the Mobile World Congress 2014.
All that is now set to change, as this report has confirmation from Nokia’s exclusive distributor in Palestine that the company is very much ready to unleash its next generation handsets.
Nokia Lumia 930 is on track for release in Q2 2014.
And the retailer also reveals that the upcoming smartphone will be powered by Windows Phone 8.1, although no details are provided on the hardware specifications of this new flagship.
Many expect the Lumia 930 to be a revised version of the Lumia Icon at Verizon.
Which basically means that the new smartphone might pack a powerful 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage that can be further expanded up to the absolute highs of 64GB via the included microSD memory card slot.
A 1080p display with an enticing 20 megapixel PureView camera could also be a reality.
