Nokia designer talks about the Lumia 930
Talking to Nokia Conversations, Jonne Harju obviously acknowledged that the Lumia 930 “unquestionably has DNA from other devices”, naming the Lumia 925, and the Verizon-exclusive Lumia Icon among those. As with the Icon, he says, Nokia has “put maximum effort to create the most purest and honest aluminum frame body that fits seamlessly together with the vibrant back cover shape.”
Jonne Harju further said that, since Nokia’s hardware design and the Windows Phone UI have similar principles (simplicity and minimalism), the Lumia 930 has “a human quality throughout to remind people it’s not just a technical device.”
The Lumia 930 is basically an Icon for international markets - but one that will run the new Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box. The handset will cost $599 unlocked, coming with a 5-inch 1080p ClearBlack display, a 20.7MP PureView rear camera, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory (non-expandable), and a 2,420 mAh battery.
