Nokia Lumia 930 “Martini” and Lumia 630 “Moneypenny” will be announced at Microsoft Build 2014
The latest rumor, apparently coming from reliable sources, is saying we will indeed see new hardware introduced by Nokia at the Microsoft Build developer conference in two weeks’ time.
Two devices in particular, which we are still learning about, will be presented. The first is the Nokia Lumia 630, codenamed, “Moneypenny.” This is a more accessible handset with a 4.5-inch screen and virtual navigation buttons. The screen will probably have a resolution in the WVGA range, 480x800 pixels.
It is thought that the Lumia 630 will have single-SIM and dual-SIM variants. Assuming that it will be a successor to the Lumia 620, the price of this new phone should be fairly easy to handle for most markets.
The Nokia Lumia 930, codenamed, “Martini,” is a bit more of a mystery. As yet, no renderings have leaked but there is conjecture that this will be a close relative to the Lumia Icon, built for wider distribution around the world and with a different physical appearance.
If that is true, that would make the Lumia 930 an easy successor to the Lumia 920 and Lumia 925, providing users with a 5-inch HD display, peppy Qualcomm Snapdragon 800-series CPU, and definitely a high-resolution camera in the 20MP range.
It is entirely reasonable to expect that Nokia may not be the only manufacturer on stage for handset announcements. Recently, we saw full images leak of a new Windows Phone from Samsung, the ATIV SE bound for Verizon. We certainly entertain the possibility for that device to be announced as well.
April 2nd is when should see Microsoft on stage at Build presenting all the goodness that is expected with Windows Phone 8.1.

So, product placement in James Bond movies is switching from Sony (Ericsson) to Nokia? I guess that's to be expected.

I hope the "Martini" is shaken, not stirred.

The thing is that other than 630 none of the other lumias have been leaked. That makes me more excited.

Yes..my next phone Nokia lumia 930 is coming in 13 days....

I hope the design is more in line with the 925 than the 920. My 920 was the heaviest phone I've used in a long time.

Both design are great but if Nokia make slimmer of 920 design then what do you think.

While hardware announcements will be welcomed, I have far more interest in the WP 8.1 release information.

8. sip1995 (Posts: 1457; Member since: 07 Feb 2014)
It's your choice but it depends of what do you want....i would suggest you to wait for the Nokia lumia 930 cuz it's smaller and it contains all the spects from the Nokia lumia 1520...maybe more.
10. akki20892 (Posts: 3851; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
Credo, 930 will blow your mind. Wait this will be the finest Nokia flagship.
16. itsdeepak4u2000 (Posts: 3653; Member since: 03 Nov 2012)
Wait for 10-12 days more. See 930 and then decide.

I would say 1520 because I do not like small phones and the 1520 is still a badass...... never had a problem with and since they put a big battery in it I get 2 days 10 hours before I need to charge, my longest time with no charge is 4 days and 1 hour, so if you like battery life, 1520 have the biggest battery out of all windows phone

Meh, the low resolution of 630 makes my eyes hurt. At least makes it 960 x 540 pixel. You don't look at Moto G, Nokia?

What about gold finget lumia 1820 did you forgot about that ?
23. Beijendorf (Posts: 336; Member since: 27 Aug 2013)
That was a faked rumour from the start that people were gullible enough to believe. There is no 1820.
22. darpalu (Posts: 1; Member since: 21 Mar 2014)
Mmh no mention of the 1020 successor?I really would like to buy a Nokia camera phone with more updated spec :(
24. Beijendorf (Posts: 336; Member since: 27 Aug 2013)
If the 930 has the Icon specs, Nokia is slacking off again considering the Lumia Icon was released way later than anticipated. It's more credible it'll have the Snapdragon 801 or better as well as the 5,2" screen we've seen leaked.
My fingers are crossed it'll come with the Pelican Imaging technology.

Bring on the Windows 8.1 updates already Us current Windows smart phone users want our new smart phone feature now not later. Windows 8 smart OS is 2 years old now replacing Windows 7.5 The iPhone OS is 7 years old and the Android OS first smart phone came out in 2008- 6 years ago. I hope Microsoft keeping bring on the Windows smart phones updates to give Windows 8 smart good festures. I will still stick with Windows 8 smart phones. they are going up in the world.
