Nokia announces the Lumia 930 smartphone
Nokia’s latest flagship matches the specs of a top-tier Android smartphone and runs on Microsoft’s latest mobile OS – Windows Phone 8.1.
The Lumia 930 has the flagship standard 5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) display with Gorilla Glass 3 and ClearBlack (which Nokia is claiming makes the device readable even in the sunniest conditions). The Processor is a fast quad-core 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 which is paired with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. The camera is equally impressive with a 20 MP, 1/2.5 inch, PureView sensor with a dual-LED flash, optical image stabilization, and ZEISS optics.
Other features include wireless charging, a 2420 mAh battery for up to 9 hours of video playback, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac wifi, NFC, LTE, and even integration with fitness apps.
Between the new features Microsoft has added to its mobile OS and the impressive specs Nokia has packed into this handset (without giving it a bump), the 930 certainly seems to have a fighting chance against other recently announced flagships like the Sony Xperia Z2, or the Samsung Galaxy S5.
The Lumia 930 is set to launch in Europe in June before rolling out to Asia and other markets. Prices are expected to start at US$599.
