Original story follows: Looks like that leak from earlier this month of an upcoming limited edition Lumia in gold was spot on, as Microsoft has just commenced sales of a Lumia 930 in gold color variant in China. Customers in the country can now purchase the limited edition Lumia 930, with the device's production run limited to 3,000 units.
There's no change in the internal hardware, but images from WPDang highlight the gold frame around the sides of the device, as well as the gold-plated Nokia logo. The device, which is officially titled Lumia 930 Golden Collector's Edition, can be bought in the country for just 2,899 yuan ($466).
The Microsoft Store in China is where interested customers can pick up the device. Also included with the purchase is a Car Charger DC-20 and the Nokia DT900 wireless charging pad.
We know that the device is limited to China, but how many of you would buy the Lumia 930 in gold if it was available for sale in your country?
