Nokia Lumia 930

Not long after resurrecting the venerable Nokia 3310 and augmenting it with a powerful 41-megapixel camera, Nokia has once again announced a new smartphone—the Nokia Lumia 930—that sports Windows Phone 8.1, a speedy CPU, and a beautiful screen. And it’s for reals this time.

The Nokia Lumia 930 is basically the global version of the much-prasied Lumia Icon. Not all Nokia fanatics have been able to experience the latter’s features, since it’s a US Verizon exclusive handset. But now that we have a global version, everyone has a chance to enjoy a remarkable, high-end Windows Phone. It runs on version 8.1 out of the box, too! That means a new notification center, UI changes, improved calendar, and Cortana, which is Microsoft’s answer to Google Now and Apple’s Siri.

In terms of hardware, the Nokia Lumia 930 is notable for having a large display (in a form factor that still manages to be comfortable to carry around) with a high resolution and, therefore, high pixel density. It doesn’t have the latest Snapdragon 801 SoC, but it does have the next best thing for providing a speedy performance for apps and games.

Other Nokia Lumia 930 niceties include its formidable 20MP PureView camera, bundled applications for several mobile activities (browsing, content sharing, productivity, and more), and a personal radio station though the Nokia MixRadio. The included 2420mAh battery makes use of wireless charging and lasts up to 15.5 hours on 3G talk time.

Expected arrival of the phone worldwide is June 2014, with the price to be somewhere around $599 (depending on the market). In the meantime, Nokia still has the Normandy invasion to work out.
