Nokia Lumia 930 Leaks Ahead of Expected Launch

By - Source: Twitter | B 13 comments

Nokia's rumored to be updating its Lumia line of smartphones at Microsoft BUILD, and it looks like we'll be formally introduced to the Lumia 930 in San Francisco tonight.

Microsoft BUILD kicks off today and Nokia, now a Microsoft-owned company, is on hand in San Francisco, too. The company has an event scheduled for this evening, but it looks like the cat is already out of the bag. A photo of the Nokia Lumia 930 leaked this morning via trusted phone leaker @evleaks. The device keeps the same bright colors we've come to expect from the Lumia line of phones but is a bit more angular than we're used to. If you recognize this phone, you're not alone. It's basically the Lumia Icon, which was released by Verizon in late February. If the rumors are to be believed, this is an Icon for those of us not on Verizon.

 

What's not clear is if we can expect the same specsheet with the 930 as we got with the Lumia Icon. If the chassis is the same and the specs match, we're looking at a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 display (441 ppi), a 2.2 GHz Qualcomm 800 with Adreno 330 graphics, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, 7 GB of SkyDrive storage, a 20-megapixel camera with a 1.2-megapixel lens up front for video calls, and a 2420 mAh battery.

Stay tuned for more information on the Nokia Lumia 930 later on today!

    Nokia isn't Microsoft owned.Their if so previously owned phone division may be if the buy has actually been done.

    Now, if only they could make their mid-tier unlocked phones more available in the US, ala the Moto G...

    Doesn't really need a massive battery for comparable battery life, as Windows Phone is appreciably more efficient compared to Android. However, I would love a RAZR MAXX sized battery... Would probably go a week between charges...

    Jane, I like your article as usual but could you please stop misusing the term "lens"? :-(

    I don't mean to pile on without reason, but I feel this needs to be said. Windows Phone may seem a lot like your standard smartphone OS. Yeah, they have the same "back" "home" "search" software buttons and the general organization is comparable-- but do not mistake this for what happens behind the scenes. Windows Phone is a massively different beast that iOS and Android.

    No reason to upgrade my 920 yet then. Maybe next year.

    Nokia makes some interesting hardware. It's really unfortunate that they hare held back by Windows Phone. An Android powered variant of this would be something special.

    As far as I was aware Microsoft purchased the rights to produce Nokia phones, etc.

    I used to like my Windows Phone but man, Microsoft needs to add HDMI support. I fell in love with my LG G2 when I downloaded the last episodes of American Horror Story Season 3 from u-torrent and added .srt subtitles all from the phone! I then watched it through the stock media player which had native support for .srt subtitles, which is a great feature to have. Beats having to drag my laptop around and connect it to the TV and to a power source which is not needed with my phone thanks to MHl and its rather large battery. The only problem is I have to stand up to pause or do anything, though I'm wondering if one can connect a bluetooth mouse to an Android phone?

    The Lumia 630 and 635 are headed this way, and at really good price points, too. I would like to see something in between the 635 and the 930 though - a new unlocked 7xx or 8xx model.

    If by "something special" you mean "just another Android phone similar to an HTC or Samsung device but with better camera", then yes.

    Well maybe, but right now it's just another phone similar to an HTC or Samsung with a very restrictive operating system. I'd prefer the former.

    Some of the things you can do on Android are very cool. Kinda like carrying around a desktop OS in your pocket. The fact that it is so open and customizable with such a huge library of apps and developer support makes it tops.

    I would suggest getting a Chromecast to lose the cable and yeah you can use a Bluetooth controller, mouse, keyboard, or remote. Try that on Windows Phone.
