Nokia Lumia 930 goes official: Lumia Icon look-alike for the rest of the world


The Nokia Lumia 930 has just gone official, and it is just what rumors painted it to be - a Lumia Icon look-alike smartphone with a 5-inch 1080 x 1920-pixel full HD display, a 20-megapixel PureView camera, and a few software tricks up its sleeve. 

The Lumia 930 will ship with Windows Phone 8.1 on board, and it comes with metallic elements on the side, plus it also supports wireless charging. In addition, just like many other Lumias, it captures outstanding sound thanks to its advanced (likely, HAAC microphone) that also support directional stereo recording.

The Lumia 930 boils down to the following specs:

  • 5” 1080x1920-pixel ClearBlack OLED display with Super Sensitive Touch
  • 2.2GHz Quad-core Snapdragon 800 system chip with 2GB of RAM
  • 20-megapixel PureView camera with ZEISS lens and dual LED flash
  • Stereo sound recording with directional sound
  • 32GB of internal storage (no support for microSD cards)
  • 2420mAh battery
  • Qi wireless charging

One of the biggest highlights of the Lumia 930 is, of course, its 20-megapixel camera. In fact, the camera in the 930 looks exactly like the one in the Lumia Icon (on paper) - it features a large, 1/2.5" image sensor, f/2.4 aperture, and auto-focus with 2-stage shutter key. Of course, it allows the same features like 2x high-resolution zoom and optical image stabilization (OIS).

In terms of software tricks, you get a new Nokia Storyteller app that will combine your images and videos, and add a soundtrack to them, much like HTC does with its highlight reels.

The Nokia Lumia 930 release date is set for June, when the phone will start selling in Europe. Later on, the phone will sell in Asia, India and Middle East. It will be available on more than 100 operators, and its starting price is set at $599 off contract.
