Finnish giant Nokia, which is soon to become a part of Microsoft once the acquisition is completed in the next few weeks, has today announced a successor to the Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone which is called the Nokia Lumia 930 and is basically nothing but the international variant of the Nokia Lumia Icon which was announced in the US some time back and brings in the best of Windows Phone and Nokia’s exclusive features in one package including the newly announced Windows Phone 8.1 OS.

To start with buyers will be able to enjoy a large 5 inch full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution with Nokia’s ClearBlack display while under the hood, everything will be powered by the powerful 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor coupled with 2 GB of RAM which will go on to make the user experience buttery smooth. There is 32 GB of internal storage but sadly this will not be expandable, which is a sad thing but the phone comes with a new design which is a welcome change.

There is a nice 20 megapixel PureView camera with dual LED Flash with OIS, which is the same module as on the Lumia 1520 while a front facing 1.2 megapixel wide angle HD camera has also been included on the Nokia Lumia 930. The smartphone comes with integrated wireless charging, a new Creative Studio app, Cortana which is Microsoft’ competitor to Siri and Google Now and much more, which we will share in a seperate post. The Nokia Lumia 930 also comes with a new SensorCore feature which will go on to gather distance and additional activity related data and then bind it into Bing Health and other fitness apps.

There is a 2420 mAh battery available on the Nokia Lumia 930 and the smartphone will be as a tradition, be available in Black, White, Green and Orange colour options. Priced at $599 (excluding taxes and subsidies), the phone will be available in Europe starting in June while other markets will get it then after.
