Nokia Lumia 930 Unveiled As The Flagship For Windows Phone 8.1

Windows Phone operating system users may soon be looking to trade in their phones to make sure they can afford to get their hands on the new flagship device that will launch the platform - the Nokia Lumia 930.

At the Build 2014 event, Microsoft executive Stephen Elop, who used to be the chief executive officer with Nokia, unveiled the new Nokia Lumia 930, stating that it will launch with the Windows Phone 8.1 operating system installed.

The new operating system has been highly anticipated, and those with handsets already running Windows Phone 8 were assured this week that they will be able to upgrade to the new system in time, letting them have access to the exciting new Cortana feature, a voice-controlled app that is set to rival Apple's Siri.

The Nokia Lumia 930 will pack a real punch in the power department as well as also retaining the majority of the features that its predecessors have been fitted with.

It will launch with five inch full HD screen, as well as a Pureview camera that packs 20 megapixels, pitching it at the high end of this particular market. The front of the phone will also have a 1.3 megapixel HD camera. 

Other features on the phone include the addition of wireless charging through the 2,420mAh battery and a 1080p screen with 441 pixels per inch (ppi). 

The Nokia Lumia 930 will be powered by a 2.2GHz quad-coare Snapdragon 800 processor and it will come with 32 gigabytes of internal storage space and two gigabytes of RAM. 

Although the phone will not launch in the US - Nokia has already looked to launch a number of phones there and has its focus on the Lumia Icon and Lumia 1520 - it will be available on general release in the UK in June 2014 with a starting price of £360. 

And in true Nokia style, the Nokia Lumia 930 will come in a range of different colours, including orange, green, black and white.
