New Nokia Lumia 930 and LG Windows Phone show up on WPBench [Updated]

WP Central

Two new Windows Phones have appeared in the app WPBench, used for testing device speed and performance. The first is the Nokia Lumia 930, seemingly a variant of the Lumia 900 with perhaps updated specs or for different radio technology i.e. CDMA. This could also be similar to the Lumia "910" which some sites have reported as being a 900 but with a 12MP camera instead of 8MP.

Likewise, the other device is from LG, who we have not heard much from lately in the last six months. That device is the LG W930, which is certainly coincidental to the Lumia 930 designation. Not much is known about that device nor what it could be packing in terms of specifications.

WPBench collects data from those testing their phone's speed and performance. Data is encrypted on both the device and server side and in theory, should be resistant to tampering. Likewise, "I'm a WP7!" pulls user data from Windows.Phone.Info.DeviceExtendedProperties and is not easily manipulated (though certainly not impossible).

Still, until we can corroborate this information, file it under rumor. Pick up WPBench here in the Marketplace.

Update: And looks like WPBench is not as impervious to spoofs as thought. 1800PocketPC has demonstrated (but not disclosed), DeviceID data can be spoofed, once again. They will be contacting the dev about the vulnerability which means until a fix, DeviceID data should not be trusted from that app. Thanks, Argenys H., for the tip

LOL after "Sprint not too enthusiastic on Windows Phones" article, you still say "Sprint please"?? :P well good luck!

I just can't wait for the 900 to show up. If a 930 comes up though, my wife will be getting it immediately.

I meant that if a 930 comes to T-Mobile it will be my wife's. I'm getting a 900, although I have a TITAN right now.

Most likely other market version with minor difference like the 910 is with a diff camera.
 
Although a Verizon version would be pretty sweet.  I hope thats what it is.

Verizon is. At&t's headquarters is shaped like a devil pitchfork and they aren't called American thugs & thieves or a$$tards & turds for no reason

Hmmm. The Quantum is C900, Optimus 7 is E900 and Panther is GW910...what could that LG phone be...
 
PLEASE have a qwerty keyboard.

Just because there is an exploit that was found by a white hat, doesn't mean it is being exploited by others. I suppose time and future info will be the judge.

You guys are kidding or what ?!
the app does exactly what its sais it suppose to
I guess you didn't try to take picture of someone's face with it
