Vodafone Germany to take pre-orders for the high-end Nokia Lumia 930 next month
The Nokia Lumia 930 is the next high-end model from the Finnish handset manufacturer, and will come with Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box. This is basically going to be the Nokia Lumia Icon for the global market. Right now, the Lumia Icon is an exclusive for Verizon customers. Next month, customers of Vodafone Germany will be able to pre-order the Nokia Lumia 930 in Black, White, Orange or Green. The handset will be released in June.

The Nokia Lumia 930 will feature a 5 inch AMOLED screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920. That works out to a 441ppi pixel density. Under the hood is a quad-core 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU with the Adreno 330 GPU handling graphics. 2GB of RAM is on board while there is 32GB of native storage. The handset does not offer a microSD slot for users who need additional storage, so you better be okay with the amount of memory available out of the box. A 20MP PureView snapper is on the back with a dual LED flash and OIS. Video is captured in 1080 x 1920 at 30fps. A front-facing shooter of 1.2MP adorns the device, which is powered by a 2048mAh cell.

Earlier this month, we passed along a report that said that Nokia would be offering a free wireless charging pad with the Nokia Lumia 930. Since this model does have support for Qi wireless charging built into the device, giving away the charging pad with the phone means that those buying the model will be able to use wireless charging out of the box, without having to buy any other accessory.

Since Android flagships are moving into the 5.5" range (too big for me), and the iPhone, even if they go to 4.7" will be too small, I may have to bite the bullet and go WP full time (Save me, BB?). Not that I am going to buy Verizon's leftovers (930), but I'm sure another 5" WP flagship is around the corner.

Same chip set as my nexus, from last year. I can't buy that "High End" claim. WP, you're being just like blackberry, catching up in hardware. Although snappy an fast, its not High end. Still a freaking beautiful phone though imo other then a couple small things.

So a 2.2 GHz quad-core phone isn't high end anymore? Remember a time when 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU used to get everyone excited? There's no REAL difference between the Snapdragon 800 & the 801. So stop hating on the Lumia 930 and go enjoy your phone!

The truth hurts, sorry. The 805 with 420 GPU, is high end. Period. This is simply clearing old stock again on WP phones. Yes I know you don't need it, so you don't need the s800 either, so you get the older soc for being complacent. Win/fail.

Newer hardware isn't only required for power or performance, they're also required for supporting future apps and tweaks and being future proof. That's why Nokia are using the S800 in their phones. The only thing used by Android from these CPUs is high benchmarks than their rivals. Otherwise, performance matches that to even a Lumia 920, which has a 2 year old CPU. Android flagships are a FAIL in terms of performance. Using newer CPUs doesn't make a phone fast. Even my Lumia 520 performs on par with my cousin's Note 3. That's the truth. Deal with it. And also, comeback in August or September, when PA compares the Lumia 930 to the G3, or the Note 4. We'll see who performs faster then. I bet both of them will perform on par with each other. The real that matters in the performance of a smartphone in OPTIMIZATION, something Android doesn't have.

hmm seems lie someone does not know that the glory of the Windows smart phones OS is that it runs very well on lower spec devices. this is good because Windows smart phones can be sold cheaper and yet run very well. this nice for People on a budget.

In a race to the bottom, you win! KK doesn't need high end either, though this has nought to do with OS but more under the skin. Truth being, she's old tech now.

Android 4.4 still needs at least 1GB of RAM for smooth performance. The claim that Android 4.4 can run on 512 MB of RAM perfectly by Google was a lie. Hence, no manufacturer is ready to update their low end phones to KitKat. Unlike Google, MS actually delivers and phones with 512MB of RAM are able to run WP with fluid performance.
