Microsoft unveiled the Lumia 930 during the first keynote at Microsoft's Build 2014 conference. The Lumia 930 is an international version of the Lumia Icon, a Verizon exclusive in the United States. The Lumia 930 is identical to the Lumia Icon in nearly every way except you get you a variety of extra color options with the Lumia 930.
The Lumia 930 features a 5-inch touchscreen with Full HD. That's a 1920 x 1080 OLED ClearBlack display with an eye-pleasing 441 pixels-per-inch. This is protected with by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, so it's resistant to daily scuffs and scratches.
The Lumia 930 has powerful internal specs. There's a 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Unfortunately, there's no expandable memory card support, but 32GB internal storage and cloud storage on OneDrive should take care of the missing slot.
As a flagship, the Lumia 930 also packs a punch in the imaging department. At the back, you have a 20MP PureView camera with optical image stabilization (OIS) and ZEISS optics. On the front, you have a high-definition 1.2 MP wide-angle camera for selfies and video calls. In India, the Lumia 930 will be available in bright orange, black and white starting from October 15 at a price of ₹38,649 ($630). There's also 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage available free for first 6 months, and chargeable thereafter at a minimal ₹125 per month.
The Lumia 930 is a powerful phone, with brilliant aesthetics and camera experience. At a sub-₹40,000 price, it's a flagship priced right. What are your thoughts on the device and the pricing? Are you looking forward to buy one?
