Nokia Lumia 930 leaks out: a Lumia Icon look-alike
Right now, we have what looks like the official press image leak out from well-known and reliable @evleaks. The image depicts a Lumia 930 with a boxy design (like the one that the Icon features) and coming in at least four color options - green, red, white and black.
The Lumia 930 also apparently features a 20-megapixel PureView camera with a ZEISS lens and dual-LED flash. We were pleased with the camera performance of the Lumia Icon, and we expect the same photographic excellence from the 930.
To freshen up your minds about the Lumia Icon (that the 930 could be a nearly identical copy of), we ought to say that it is a device with a 5-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 system chip and 2GB of RAM. We expect similar specs in this forthcoming Lumia 930.
You’d need to wait a few more hours, though, for the official announcement - we’ll also be reporting live from the event, so stay tuned.

Well....there's always iPhone 5C if you want a cyan phone :3

Red would like nice. As well as Cyan like my 920. Of these colors sadly I'd have to go with black. I don't really care for orange or green.

yah. green and orange does not look good with that aluminum frame.
unless it was also colored like the nokia N8's aluminum Body...

Awesome!!! Hope it has SDcard option, or 64GB model...

I dont think it will have a SD slot. Where to put it? I think its identical to Nokia Icon.
31. dexter_jdr (Posts: 1161; Member since: 28 Jun 2012)
sorry no SD card. its a lumia icon clone

I don't like how that camera looks. They should style it a bit more. A metal thingie like since N9 or something like 925 and 1520. But that flat small little black point looks plain.

I dont think so, what did nokia do with 9.8mm thick and 2420 mAh battery for 5inch FHD screen resolution???
32. dexter_jdr (Posts: 1161; Member since: 28 Jun 2012)
maybe its the wireless charging copper coil and the 1/2.5" camera sensor.
or maybe just unicorn flesh.

Looks decent. I like more red and yellow than green and orange though.

If it's an exact copy of the Icon, it's merely a top mid-ranger. Which would explain why it'd have such an affordable price as rumoured.
The flagship everyone's waiting for is still nowhere to be seen.

....? Those don't look like on screen buttons? :-(
14. Beijendorf (Posts: 324; Member since: 27 Aug 2013)
Because it's an in international copy of the Lumia Icon. The phone that got delayed like 2 months, and was released 2 months ago. A point in time when no WP8.1 was on the horizon.
So by today's standards this phone is a mid-ranger, not a flagship.
22. MojoDojo (Posts: 83; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
Mid-ranger? Must be something very wrong with your definition of a mid-ranger!
23. Beijendorf (Posts: 324; Member since: 27 Aug 2013)
Assuming they go with the Icon specifications, it'll be technology from Q4 of 2013. Old technology. Not something worthy of being called 2014 flagship technology.
They could of course surprise us at the event in a few hours, but I don't see anything ground-breaking with half a year old technology if they go with the Icon specifications.

the processor,ram, screen, camera looks high end to me...
no snap805 yet on the market.
34. Beijendorf (Posts: 324; Member since: 27 Aug 2013)
The processor is last-generation (current is 801 and by June the current will be 805). The screen is likely just fine, the RAM is a bit on the lower side albeit normal (Z2 went with 3 GB). The camera is a bit underwhelming when people buy Nokia in large part because of the camera. On top of it all, I think a lot of us were hoping for new camera rechnology, not just a 1520-copy.
I like Nokia, I just wish they were a bit faster with development and global releases. If the 930 was out TODAY I wouldn't complain as much.
35. dexter_jdr (Posts: 1161; Member since: 28 Jun 2012)
its actually a waste on our money if they intend to announce the latest phone model with the latest processor.
with that much power, we cant even max out the processor with current WP.
sure it will result into smooth-sailing tasks,
-its like you own a ferrari, but driving on a 50kph limit
36. Beijendorf (Posts: 324; Member since: 27 Aug 2013)
To use your own analogy here; you may not have the need to reach the top speed with your Ferrari. But you do want to accelerate fast!
And it's the same thing with adding the latest processors. You may not need to keep it under 100 % load all the time, but you do want intermittent bursts of speed. The Image Signal Processing speed in the Snapdragon 801 is almost equivalent to the speed of the Snapdragon 805. Imagine the burst camera speed or 4K recording with a SoC like that.
I don't know if power consumption is lower in the 801/805 too, but it doesn't feel impossible.
Releasing a phone with a 2 generations old processor (it isn't out until June, remember) and calling it "Flagship" is just inexcusable. Also, it's not a cheap phone... they didn't pass those 'savings' onto their customers.
37. dexter_jdr (Posts: 1161; Member since: 28 Jun 2012)
lets say not max it. just 4/5 of the processing power.
yes lumia phones has a steady (not rapid) acceleration, but it is a stable one fortunately -compared to others.no apps yet to stress the soc intensively.
and i believe gas consumption is the same on the 1st gear and the 5th gear.

what a coincodence:
stupid phonearena banned the site my nokia blog. but other sites is not banned. just type it together again

If it doesn't support SD card, I'm not going to switch back to WP, 1520 is too big and i don't need a phone that has a very good camera, but i want a flagship :v
17. adwienc (Posts: 134; Member since: 26 Mar 2014)
Big dissapointment for me. 5 inch for screen is stupid standard, 4.5 or 4.7 is perfect size. I hope 1030 will not have such a big screen.
925 with 1020 camera and it would be perfect phone.

Can't wait to find out more.. this could be a hit if it has 8.1

I love the 'Android' Green one! Hahaha well done Nokia! xD
26. s_boy (Posts: 15; Member since: 30 Nov 2013)
Would be awesome if this is a smaller 4.5" or 4.7" screen which is full HD, a decent camera is sufficient as the 1000 series is usually camera orientated.
27. s_boy (Posts: 15; Member since: 30 Nov 2013)
it's a 5"....boooo! so it's basically the Lumia Icon
