Nokia will unveil #moreLumia to the world on April 2nd

It’s been rumored and now confirmed: Nokia will be in San Francisco the same day Microsoft launches their Build 2014 developer conference. Coincidence? Of course not. Microsoft is expected to announce Windows Phone 8.1 in the early morning keynote, with Nokia taking their stage later in the day at 5 PM at their own event.

The last time Microsoft announced a major OS update – Windows Phone 8 – there was a delay of a few weeks before Nokia was ready to launch the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920. This time, that gap has closed.

So what to expect? We have a hunch there will be at least two devices:

  • Lumia 630 aka ‘Moneypenny’
  • Lumia 930 aka ‘Martini’

The Lumia 630 is expected to have the following features:

  • 4.5 inches touch screen
  • 854x480 resolution
  • Virtual touch keys
  • Size: 129.5 x 66.7mm.
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • Dual SIM (variant)

In terms of the Lumia 930, surprisingly not much is known at this time. We’ve heard from our own sources that it’s an “international Lumia Icon”. That makes sense in terms of specs, as the Lumia Icon would make a great successor to the venerable Lumia 920. However, we bet it looks more like the traditional Lumia ‘fabula’ design, meaning it will be less conservative than Verizon’s design choice. So you know, probably some actual colors and rounded corners.

Then there’s the mystery device: ‘Goldfinger’.

Not much is known about this phone except that it has no buttons and it uses a new sensor system for gestures. Some real cutting edge stuff. In terms of specs and design though, it’s a black box. We’re not even sure it’s ready to be revealed, which is why it’s going into our ‘maybe’ category for now. [Update: We've now heard that this phone and gesture system is not expected until next year. Sorry folks!]

Regardless, Windows Phone Central will be there en masse next week, with myself, Sam Sabri and Mark Guim all bringing you the best coverage. Stay tuned.

  • give me martini!!
  • 2nd april is special day
  • OMG !!!! Come on 8.1 !!!!
  • Noticed the MORE in the above picture has the Nokia Mix Radio app smiley symbol. Does this mean its not about hardwear but music?   Just saying...
  • I'm off that day :D
  • +1520
  • I can't wait to see the new 930 design! :D
  • If built on 1st april it will be an april mop news
  • Give me icon
  • I think Verizon customers will have been screwed by the Icon, because it doesn't have 8.1 out of the box, no SD card and no Glance/double tap to wake.
    The rumored 930 will likely have all of this, and won't be available on Verizon... and who knows how long it will be before another Nokia is released for Verizon.
    If nothing is announced or rumored within a couple of weeks Build, I'll reluctantly pay an early termination fee and switch to AT&T.
  • Screwed? Don't be silly, it's an outstanding phone no matter what way you look at it. I think anyone who bought it accepted the possibility of new handsets coming with 8.1 anyway. =)
  • The Icon will get 8.1 the day it's released.
  • Not likely, but it will certainly get it eventually :).
  • I do agree with everything you said except for paying to switch to ATT. Things change so quickly in the mobile world, wouldn't want to sacrifice service for hardware that is so quickly outdated anyways...
  • I wish my 1520 didn't support SD card slots due to Microsofts cr@ppy policy regarding not supporting SD card encryption. The device is sitting here on my desk worthless and I switched back to my classic 920.
  • Pass it here,please.
  • In WP8.1 we will be able,to use SD card for,storing games and apps data
  • Er.... That seems an odd decision. The 1520 and 920 both have 32gb storage. Do you reeealy need to encrypt an SD card? What are you planning to keep on that thing?!
  • You wish your 1520 "didn't" support SD??!!  wtf   anyway, did you hear the the Lumia 1520 and the 2520 both work with the new SanDisk Ultra 128 GB microSDXC UHS-I Card ?
  • For the 1520, that card is too slow for proper hd video capture. You'll get audio skipping; your best bet is the 64gb SanDisk Ultra Plus Posted via the WPC App for Android!
  • They're almost exactly the same device, excepting screen size :P
  • Why did you not just remove SD from the phone and use it with integrated storage, same as you do with 920 anyway..?
  • The Icon didn't screw those on Verizon. Verizon screwed those on Verizon. They custom specified it like ATT did on screwing their customers with the 1520
  • The way AT&T has been modifying Windows Phones lately, I do not expect we will get a great divice on AT&T. Nokia may make one, but AT&T will get a butchered version.
  • Wireless Charging is a big plus. I wish my 1020 didn't need a wireless charging case but was built in like my Red 920.
    We all have the choice to switch over to a different carrier and at&t knows that... So they better play nice.
  • And this was the exact reason Nokia left the US market in the first place........
  • "If nothing is announced or rumored within a couple of weeks Build, I'll reluctantly pay an early termination fee and switch to AT&T." I'll check back at the end of April and see how that AT&T switch is going for you!
  • I hope they ain't fooling around cause its April ;p
  • PLEASE DON'T!
  • Well, they did choose April 2nd and not 1st, probably for a reason. I'll be ready for a new Windows phone in 2015. Hopefully I can update my 920 to WP8.1 before Summer. Maybe by then there will be a Microsoft Surface Phablet with a pen that actually rivals the Galaxy Note series.
  • GivemeMore Nokia 1520 in 5.5 form factor. Thanks!
  • Nokia Lumia 930 or Surface Phone
  • Surface phone my dream phone. Will save money for that later.
  • It is great in theory but it all depends on how they would execute a Windows Phone similar to Surface. They always seem to omit some really key features, at least in the first version, or it's too heavy or expensive, etc. They get close to the mark but don't actually hit it. It's always something :)  
  • The Lumia Icon is essentially what a Surface phone would be except that it has a poly carbon back instead of magnesium. Its industrial design is very similar to the Surface tablets.
  • No preview for 8.1
  • I hope that Martini is 5" in size and not 4.5" as rumoured.
  • Same here :'(
  • God I hope not my 920 is already to big to hit all four corners with my thumb one handed and slipped from my grip more then any other phone because of its size. Really why is to so hard for manufaturers to make a highend phone with a reasonble 3.5" screen anymore. If I want small tablet I'll buy a small tablet not a comically large phone.    Edit BTW my Nexus 5 is even worse not only is the screen even bigger when it falls insted of digging it out of the small crater left in the asphalt like with my 920 I'm just left to pick up the broken pices of the screen.
  • Goldfinger❕❗
  • Ditto!! I was more interested in Goldfinger, but glad they're now saying it won't be till next year so I'm not waiting around and missing out on having the martini. Definitely going to get a "martini" now.
  • Martini...shaken...not stirred.
  • ... Martini James Bond Style.
  • Ermahgerd I can't wait for 8.1!!!
  • Ermagherd cent wert fer 8.1 , to be correct :P
  • Ermagherd khent wert fer eirth paint ouhn esclemeishun markh
    To be as precise as possibru
     
  • Ermagherd khent wert fer eirth paint ouhn esclemeishun markh
    ter bee arse percize arse porssirbru*
  • Carefull APRIL FOOL!!!
  • This leak was awhile back and it doesn't fall on the 1st.
  • I cannot wait! Due for a new phone soon.
  • I'm not due for a new phone, so if the device is tempting enough, I will attempt to purchase on off contract.
  • You can always ask for an early upgrade.
  • Woot!
  • Hope we will not have to wait for long to get the 8.1 update after it is announced.
  • Lets hope !!! Nokia please dont make us wait for 3 months this time !
  • There's Nokia delay and also carrier delay
  • No carrier delay in India ;-) no carrier specific phones here
  • Yup! That's something to feel lucky for ;)
  • Same here in Saudi :)
  • The trick is to reflash with stock firmware as soon as you buy a phone. Bye bye carrier approval.
  • Download the Preview for Developers app to you device now so you can download without waiting for Cellular carriers.
  • Wowww
  • Woot woot!
  • Is it invite only or can all BUILD attendess attend it? I imagine this will also be in the Moscone Center?
  • It's a press event, so very doubtful that Build attendees could attend. It won't be at Moscone.
  • That sucks. Oh well, I'll be keeping an eye on wpcentral for any news then ;)
  • And is everyone from our wpc staff going to be there?
  • Looks like it ;)
  • Well, Then there'll be some dependable news source for us.. :)
  • I had hoped we would see the devices during the BUILD Keynote. I wonder if they will just use one device for demonstration purposes and save the other (or others) for the Nokia event later.   Maybe I'll see you at BUILD Daniel. :)
  • Registration is sold out but you can watch it online at http://www.buildwindows.com/
  • Yeah cool
  • I'll be at BUILD, I was asking about the Nokia press event (which Daniel kindly answered).
  • As long as T-Mobile gets one with SD card or 32gb or both. Can't wait!
  • Yes!!! T Mobile is huge❕.... We need them to support the platform,, big time❕❕
  • Well, they do Rod. Deutsche Telekom who owns T-Mobile, always has the latest and greatest in Germany (both my 920 and 1020 are from them). They just need to be as supportive in the US market. For that they need the market to change and Americans to join in the change ;)
  • Those Americans are a stubborn bunch of @#$%$%$$$#@ss holes❕.. :-o:-o:-o:-o
    ..................
    They think the world revolves around them... Jerks.
  • LOL
    Careful when you drive home today my friend...they might have read what you wrote.
  • Yeah, and they will turn on you like a dime...
  • Rodney, buddy, did you get in trouble on Phone Arena again??  The threads are alive saying you were.  Makes me giggle... (I am snowgator on PA.)
  • Yeah,,,, banned again for a week❕❕.. Lol!!... To many stupid, pathetic trolls.. But, the moderators don't punish them.. Instead when I call the trolls out they ban me... And, they ban you for stupid things.. Like, one time I called this troll something stupid, like "potato neck", and they banned me... The site is just ran by a bunch of super biased idiots.. For example, they run articles on top apps for the month, and they showcase at least 15 iDroid apps each, but maybe 5 WP apps that don't even do the platform justic. So, when I questioned the editor about the fact that could do better for WP he replied back asking me if I was trolling, and asked me if I could even post the link to even 1 great new app for the month of February.. He also gave me some stupid lecture about how the apps had to be for Feb. and his dumb ass had Film On TV listed, which was released way back in like December.. Can you believe that?... It was easy.. I came strait to WPC's app section and copied the links to about 12 new apps for Feb. that were way better than the ones the jerk posted... He said that those weren't good enough to be considered top apps... What a fool..... I hate PA, and I'm seriously thinking about deleting my account.. They suck!
    ..............................
    Buy, I didn't argue with "Victor"... Check it out❕.. Scroll down in the comment section... And, look at my apps compared to his. http://www.phonearena.com/news/Best-new-Android-iOS-and-Windows-Phone-ap...
  • Why do you even bother going there? I mean, the moment I saw them compare the Z1Compact with the iPhone 5S and trash the Z1 Compact, that was enough for me. They're idiots. Period.
  • I guess I'm a idiot too.. IDK.
  • Better an idiot than a potato neck....wait...what is a potato neck again?
  • IDK.. It just sounds funny..
  • Yeah, it was my first mobile site I started following. Overall, I still go to keep up with"general news", they do a decent job of that. I keep up with all platforms for my friends and family. But I hardly comment. I don't find the writers as bad as you do, but the comment section is just overflowing with venom these days. Mean spirited, cheering- outright CHEERING- for BlackBerry to go out of business, MS to fail, and insults galore. I rarely comment. No fun. I like a good debate, it is how I learn. But it is just nasty there anymore.
  • Naw man, don't do that. You're doing good for WP. Keep spreading the WORD Brotha!
  • Cool. Cool, cool, cool....
  • Woah so much bias on Phonearena. What the actual f*ck? Android trolls all over the place. Glad I do never visit this site.
  • And, you would think the moderators would do something about it... Go look at my comments to trolls... Are they really something I should be banned for?.. The site is ran by haters obviously... I'm done with it... I wish there was a way I could bring attention to these punks.
  • .... You should know this better if you are T-Mobile customer.
  • Where's the 730 ?? I need one in that range ! Hopefully nokia would work on that soon.
  • 5PM ET?
  • It's in SF, so 5 PM PDT
  • 3pm Central???... I think that's right..
  • Actually 7:00PM Central/8:00PM Eastern.
  • Right, I went the wrong way... Lol❕... It's ok.. Daniel already figures I rode the short neon green bus...
  • This guy below had a good question.. Does this mean that WP8.1 has been RTM?
  • Thanks Dan, I was just hoping it was earlier. I got to work early so I was just hoping it wouldn't be connected with my winding down time. Oh well, 7:30 bedtime for the kids then.;)
  • I will be traveling that day and will be limited to follow the news; maybe i need to spend the money for in flight wifi for this trip.  
  • So close
  • Anxious to get that 8.1 dev preview.
  • Me too. I hope they will release the update via dev preview as soon as it is announced and most probably they will but you know, there is always a what if...
  • WP8.1 already RTMed?? I think now is time for that.
  • Well, it has to be.. I would think.. IDK... If anyone besides Nokia introduces new devices then the answer is yes❕... Good question.. Nobody even though about that..
  • RTM'ed earlier this month.
  • Apparently on the the 26th of March, if I read the other article correctly.
  • A good birthday present for me on that day! Thanks Microsoft and Nokia :)
  • I just bought the Lumia 625, moneypenny will have more ram... Nooooo
  • I know that feel, bought the 620 a few months ago. Although i don't really regret it a lot, seems like the 630 lacks flash, front facing camera and damn that bezel even without capacitive buttons.
  • Yeah Nokia really had something with the 620, but the successors seem to have fewer capabilities. The 620 appealed to me as it was enough. The 625 and 630 do not seem to be enough.
  • Just excited too see 8.1 the 1520 is a killer phone but if that 930 wows me I might be in a problem with the wife.
  • Looking forward to it.
  • I may be reading to much into thus, but look at the smiley face in the announcement... turn it upside down and you have a pair of speakers. Do u reckon Nokia are gonna announce something music related?
  • That's MixRadios logo. They'll probably announce some changes to MixRadio too ;)
  • They just updated mix radio few days ago. Might be taking about more collection or making it more professional like iTunes.
  • Or availability in more countries!
  • so thats what got your attention????? what anout the watch???????
  • That's the current icon for the Nokia MixRadio app
  • If you check out http://conversations.nokia.com/2014/03/25/build-will-come/ , you'll see that there the 'o' in MORE is an animation that shows a number of their services. I.e., the Nokia Mix icon is only the most prominent, not the only one.
  • Nice - tks for clearing up!
  • I actually like the design of the Icon...but I'll be ok if the 930 has a design like the 920. I just don't want any camera humps.
    Oh...and the Goldfinger is still a prototype. They may mention it as a work in progress but I doubt it as it would take the spotlight from the 930. It's not ready for commercialization yet.
  • Same here. To be honest I love my 1020 so I most likely won't get the 930 if its the icon in Lumia design. I'm looking forward to the features in 8.1. I hope a replacement for the 1020 comes out this year that's what I want. I'm not in contract so I can get a phone whenever I want :)
  • I think a 1020 replacement will come Spring/Summer next year, to tie in with the two year anniversary of the 1020. Shame, because I am eager for the 1030, and my contract is up in November this year.
  • Guess we have to wait and see.
  • That seems a bit conservative to me - remember this summer will have been 2 years since the pureview 808 was released.  Should at least be a 1020 with updated screen/processor (i.e. the 1025), but I'm hoping for a significant imaging upgrade too. 
  • Nokia ftw :P I'm excited for Nokia stuff and I'm glad to hear something Nokia related at build since we been hearing about Samsung -_-
  • Daniel I can only imagine the fun you have seeing new devices first hand
  • Lucky b...guy!
  • i see what you did there . bit_h...
  • Awesome news!
  • Good news. Ready to upgrade from my L920.
  • Can't wait till april 2nd. After finishing my last exam that day, I can sit back, relax and enjoy all the Build announcements :).
  • Giggity!  I like the sound of this. Lumia 930 I hope is close to what the Icon is, if not better.
  • Please SD card, removable battery, and ... a physical keyboard (Bluetooth?)
  • wp8.1 will have hid support yo :)
  • Can't wait...
    It will be a major update for us!! Maybe dumbdroid user will switch to Lumia. BBM will arrive at that day too :)
  • Please don't stoop to the level of a troll by name calling Android users, until your comment, all of the focus was on WP....
  • "except that it has no buttons" is that true? Goldfinger wont have buttons? Like camera, volume etc or just the home, back and search?
  • im 90% positive its a.smart watch, hense the watch logo in the invitiation GIF. show on nokis conversations website.
  • If it's not what the other guy said, I'd say it'll be like the Nokia N9, no physical buttons on the front of the device and everything is navigated via the screen/gestures.
  • i just want the 8.1 update for my beautiful lumia 1520. I cant beleive how much i like wp on my 1520 over android on my note3, and getting a virtual assistant back will only make it better
  • Good if that virtual assistant turns out worldwide & not restricted to ....umm, you know?
  • There is nothing wrong with the Lumia Icon design! I am very excited to see what 8.1 will bring to my Nokia Lumia 1520!
  • Will it still be 1st April in any part of the Earth when be announcing?
  • The real question is, will the 930 have glance and double tap to wake? If so then there will be a nice outcry.
  • Yes, it will have double-tap yo wake up. That feature is becoming more and more popular. LG and Sony phones are starting to have it, Jolla has it and Nokia, who created it, obviously will have it too ;)
    The Glance absence on the 929/Icon is very farfetched...I smell Verizon interference there. The 930 will very very likely have it.
  • It's funny how when reading a review of the Z2 it was saying how it borrowed the double tap feature from Lg's device. While the system on the LG is a little different, it's a shame they couldn't give credit where credit is due.
  • Don't listen to DJtroll, he has no idea what he's talking. It's all assumption.
  • Yeah. Listen to tangleidiot, he always says such useful things even though he's always as clueless as a rock.
  • I thought the Icon already had double tap, it was just missing glance.
  • 630 is shit...no flash
  • Flash spoils the pic. Its just good for taking pics of objects in dark.
  • In the hundreds of photos I've taken I think I've used flash about half a dozen times, if it's not xenon, it's pointless, and nokias cameras are doing well in low light without it.
  • I'm excited to see what phones are for this holiday. Since my two years isn't up till November 11!
  • Wow!! Why tomorrow is not 2nd April?
  • Because Microsoft means patience.
  • It could be if you change the time on your phone/PC.
  • @Daniel Rubino
    Are you going to update in real-time any news about the Build 2014 conference? Please! There are people who don't speak english so don't know what they are talking about :'(
  • My contract with ATT ends on April 8th! I am ripe for a fabulous new upgrade. Praying Tmobile gets the new flagship so I can use their individual no contract $50 /month plan for unlimited talk/text & 1gb data. That's fine for me.
  • i  can't  w a i t  \o/
  • I'm looking to get the 930 most likely, my contract is up next month so I can finally switch from my Lumia 900. I'm intersted in Goldfinger too, but the rumors I've read is that it will be bigger like the 1520, which is a non-starter for me.
  • The update process will be the same right as we had got black and gdr3
  • March is taking way too long to end lol
  • That's y this year im hating march month. The only months i love is April build time, sept nokia world event and December where we end the year with great apps on wp.
  • What time is MS keynote?
  • 9am U.S. time.
  • there is more than one time zone in the us
  • Nokia lumia 930  = my next phone
  • What will be its price?? Any idea
  • On contract depends on the carrier. Full price should be more or less around 650€ in Europe (depends then on the country).
  • Agree with the price, at least in my country i can buy it from the exclusive carrier or on contract and use it with a different carrier.
  • Since you're with Vodafone, I assume you're in Europe. So yeah, we do have an easier life here in regards to that (though I never buy the phones directly from Vodafone. I rather buy them unbranded).
  • I really hope the 930 isn't just a Lumia icon, that's not the type of phone that should come with an amazing new OS update, it should be a lot more innovative
  • Would be nice if they could at least drop the 801 in there, but it's highly unlikely. Also I'd love if they could bring back the FM transmitter.
  • My contract has been up since last June! Been waiting for the 930!
  • lucky you
  • In case you are wondering, I'm still on my Focus S "upgrade" though I've gotten a free 900 and 920!
  • It's no Nokia Lumia if no dedicated camera button.
  • Agreed. A shutter button is a must. Something as simple as a shutter button really separates Lumias from other camera-centric phones.
  • Wow, it took about 50 comments for someone to mention the lack of a camera button, but when the ATIV SE render leaked, that was the FIRST thing the Nokia fanboys pointed out. Amazing.
  • I don't think there has been a confirmed render of the lumia 930 yet like the ativ se hence there hasn't been many comments about the camera button (or the lack of) on the 930 as it would be pure speculation at this point. However if Nokia do remove it... That would be a major disappointment for me as well.
  • I was speaking more of the 630 render above that has no camera button.
  • Meh, I never use the camera button on my 920. For whatever reason, probably user error :P, using the physical button results in slightly blurry pictures.
  • Last I've heard, the decision was the leave the dedicated camera button only on PureView devices. So, the 930 will have it, but the "630" (which is more a 530, really) and any other non-PureView phones will not have it.
  • Can't wait anymore, need a new Lumia now, need to get a replacement for my 920, so excited
  • My Windows fanboy body is ready!
  • Upgraded 1020 please!!!!
  • Which apps y'all expecting to be announced on 2nd??I am sensing something huge here!!
  • I guess we will get many apps except bbm which will come in summer
  • VLC is coming
  • Screenshot of vlc is available in wmpoweruser. Its in works guys...
  • Fart apps.
  • I am looking forward to the 930. However, I cannot upgrade with ATT until October. My 900 with 7.8 has been the best phone I have ever owned.
  • If you're on AT&T, I doubt there's much for you. The 630 is a budget phone, the 930 - if it's an international Icon - won't be on AT&T (my guess), and Goldfinger is delayed until next year? I'm due April 6, and it's looking a lot like a 'cheap' 1020 for me ($49 at Amazon now).
  • I think the 930 will come to at&t.
  • I'd really like a camera-centric successor to the 1020 but with an SD card slot. Xenon flash, PureView lens, SD slot, larger screen, faster processor... count me in.
  • Yup. But there aren't even rumors of that.
  • There were rumors of an 1820, but sadly they've all but disappeared.  Surely Nokia will update the 1020 concept at some point?
  • IF that phone happens, it will only happen by the end of this year with any luck. The 1020 is a niche device. Niche devices don't get refreshed that quickly. Also, with Nokia being gone, any new Lumia based on the Nokia L1020 will have to be produced by Microsoft. And there's zero evidence that Microsoft will keep putting money on niche imaging devices. So the 1030 may never happen. It will depend only on Microsoft.
  • Of course MSFT will keep investing on PureView. They have the best imaging patents in the industry and you think they will just ignore them?
  • One of MS's four advertised selling points in their recent push for WP8.1 and Lumia devices is their camera superiority. I hope they maintain that leadership. I know that the 920 and 1520 take decent photos outdoors, but nothing in current phones comes close to the 1020 and it's xenon flash.  That's the biggest reason why most of my time I use my 808 instead of my Lumia.
  • Oh YES ! Been waiting for this day to come. More Lumias to come. Bring it on Nokia. Show us what you have. Bring out the best !!   
  • 630 seems met my taste. but 480p? :( give Us 720p! :D
  • May be 730?
  • So the 930 has fine cutting edge technology what Microsoft earlier had stated to the public
  • That's got to Goldfinger. We dont what number it's going to have.
  • No, its already been confirmed that the Nokia 930 is "Martini".
  • This is a pleasant surprise I can't wait I am in line for an upgrade too =)
  • This Coverage is going to be an EPIC Coverage for WPCentral guys.. !! Epic Event.. Epic Update.. Epic Coverage.. Epic Microsoft.. Epic Nokia..!!!
  • Or epic rage if the Dev Preview doesn't come out like ppl expect it to
  • Why being negative..?? Dnt worry.. It will surely start rolling out the same day or the same week..!!
  • Haha, quite possible! People might burn down MSFT stores?
  • I hope MSFT knows about this..!!
  • On the same day can we get wp 8.1 developer preview for existing wp 8.0 devices??
  • Probably.!!
  • Would be great if they were to throw in the 530 as well, hopefully with a refreshed, slightly slimmer design than 52x, and same or even lower recommended starting price. Martini migh well be my next phone though.. :)
  • Daniel if not on 2nd April then when u just now tweeted i guess.
  • Phuck Nokia!! I want Microsoft to announce the Lumia 1520 for all carriers within the USA.
    Throw some of that weight around.
  • You assume Microsoft actually has any weight to throw around in the first place.....
  • Touche!!!
  • Please tell me Tmobile picks up at least one of the top tier devices!
  • I don't care, WP8.1 already yesterdays news
  • So in a nut shell the 630 - Low end, 930 - high end, 1820 - high end "phablet". I think I'll be going for the 930.
  • People really believe in 1820? Lol.
  • There's no such thing as a 1820. Nor a 1520 mini.
  • Windows 8.1 support in all the windows 8 device.???
    update is released in all over.???
  • Yes, all WP8 devices will receive 8.1. And the update will be released just like all the other GDRs.
  • are you asking about WINDOWS 8 or WINDOWS PHONE 8?
  • I hope all the features of Windows Phone 8.1 reach even the Lumia 5xx, 6xx, series. Many features miss out from these phones. I want the equaliser, glance screen support(i know maybe it's because if the hardware, but.,) and much more.
  • Am I the only one around here who thinks that the Lumia Icon looks like a piece of poop and really hopes, that the 930 doesn't look even a bit like that? Seriously, I hope it has those microphones and stuff, but the design just kills me...
  • Enough phones. I hope they announce  major upgrade to MixRadio. Already the first radio launched in China. And all you Nokia fans should subscribe to MixRadio for $3.99 per month. It's worth every penny.
  • I wouldnt mind it look like the Icon, if anything, flatten out that slight curved back too, and add some touched here & there, & voila! suddenly we have a new design language. The surface phone we had all been waiting for!
  • Ive had android since the beginning with the tmobile G1. Ive been waiting to switch to windows phone and when 8.1 gets released im going to finally get the 1520! I cant wait!
  • I want that 930 to be released very close to its announcement, and to have microSD, and be on AT&T! Qi backplate would be nice, but isn't a primary feature I want. I just want a Lumia icon with microSD...
  • Oh, so onboard with you, kem!!  I am so ready for a WP8, and been waiting for the right device.  I will settle for the L1520 if the L930 is below 5", but I want 5.0".   Icon, for the love of all that is Holy, I want that silly Icon....
  • It better be 5.0"...
  • Interesting how the 930 hasn't been leaked yet at...
  • Unless they're unvieling that the 930 or the Goldfinger is just the new HTC One, do not want. Also, only one person said anything about the Nokia not having a camera button. Nice fanboyism we've got going on here. :)
  • Try harder troll
  • I'm "trolling" but when Nokia fanboys jump in HTC and Samsung post comments saying "ONLY NOKIA FOR ME!!!1!" it's all good? Ok fanboy :)
  • Thanks it's not april 1st. Nokia would unveil 1030, 100mp, superb spec and only costs $400. Then, april mop. Lol
  • Maybe something about mixRadio as well? The O is the mixRadio icon
  • And so it begins... And it is a shame the 630 appears to be without a flash... Why????
  • windows 8.1 is support in lumia 520,720,620.....,.
  • 930, with icon specs, phyical camera button, mSD slot, 920 design? That's the perfect combo for me. Going to have to compromise on the screen size at 5", as 4.5-47" would be the ultimate combo for me personally.
  • +1020. I like the way you think. Let's bang.
  • Daniel tweeted no preview for 8.1 or its delayed.... back to waiting as usual. Typica MS bullshit.
  • Considering they haven't even announced 8.1's existence yet..... don't know how they are screwing anyone here!
  • I think it has something to do with the complex changes to its core apps.
  • I hope that doesn't happen.
  • I'll simply be happy if we can get an annoucement for Lumias on Sprint. I love my HTC8XT but would like to have a Lumia option when time to upgrade next year.
  • seriously, I've been hanging on to my Arrive for too long. Hopefully "more" means more carriers too, smh. Starting to get frustrated
  • I really hope the 930 has enough surprise and changes in store to win me over, I'm ready for an upgrade. If this one doesn't cut it then it will probably be the 1020..
  • Boring! Show me something that can take on the 1020's camera, till then its all fluff! :)
  • Camera is important but for me there are other things that are even more important: - Larger screen size; - Better processor; - Better resolution; - Better battery; - Thinner design; - Etc...
  • Well, Tom Warren at The Verge reports that the 930 is going to be very similar to the Icon, iincluding the processor. But, why on earth wouldn't Nokia use the Snapdragon 801? Hell, even the new HTC One has it!
  • "very similar" is different from "the same". So the 801 may be on board ;)
  • Give me, give me, give me 8.1 NOW!!!
  • Maybe goldfinger is the 1030
  • It isn't.
  • it's possible
  • Thank God! New software and hardware! It will be like Christmas and Birthday together! I'd love the "black box" but i can have a Martini in the meantime!
  • Martini- shaken but NOT stirred :D Posted via the WPC App for Android!
  • Nice I'm ready T-Mobile, lets upgrade me
  • Where are the killer phones that really push the envelope? The 1520 was nice, but it's not for everybody. The 1020 has a number months already, and will seem really old at the end of a two-year contract. If Nokia is going to be providing the best camera experience, shouldn't they be readying a 1020 successor sometime soon to avoid being shown up by others in the future?
  • What I want to know is, did Microsoft change it's update schedule? Will all major updates come in the spring now? It used to be in the fall.
  • Can I bring Brinet Spears over here to sing "gimme more"? Gimme gimme. Gimme. Gimme, gimme more...
  • Martini with Vodka... Only Polish Vodka...
  • You are right
  • Got these comment on the Nokia Conversations page. Wondering what they are talking about. Hethler De Chavez • an hour ago Easter egg on "more". Am I allowed to spoil or should I rather shut up :) MikaBaumeister  Do you mean the upper more or the red circle ;)  Luke Peters Mod  • an hour ago Ssssshhhhhhhhhh Hethler De Chavez  There you have it, I'll take that as a NO. Haha! :)
  • Does that mean the new phones will go on sale Easter??
  • Daniel, Do you have a location for this event?  I'm wondering how far it is from BUILD. I've never been to San Fran, so I'd like as much opportunity as possible to plan how I get from one event to the other.
  • An international version of Icon would be my perfect next phone.
  • So wait, what time will Samsung, LG and the others be in stage to go over their own version of killer Apps like Nokia drive and Nokia Music? just kid. Just kid. See what I did there?
  • I'm waiting for the 930. This 1520 is just a tad too large for my hand :/
  • Great, new software and hardware the same day!
  • Basically no new Nokia phones first and second quarter of 2014 to challenge the S5 and One2One. Nothing to create buzz. Behind the game as usual.
  • New phones will be released in April or may most likely.
  • What new phone? 930 "supposedly" as the these rumors say is international Lumia icon. That's no new phone. 630 bla bla! With the Nokia x, who needs low spec lumias in developing countries. 630 is nothing to creat buzz about.
  • If Nokia is announcing 8.1 phones at build there will be a high end phone.
  • Ahh if one2one (network operator) were around they would claim trademark infringement lol. They were around when bt/phillips made some phones, bt cellnet was the last one i remember. No, im not that old - only 25 lol!
  • watch out y'all... we bout to get PUNK'D by both Microsoft and Nokia... watch... lol. "APRIL FOOLS" hint hint.
  • April fools is April 1st. Not the 2nd =P
  • Hope godfinger is a new high end phone.
  • Let hope Verizon pushes the update on time for 928. Remember Black Update?)
  • One2One, every tech site is just salivating all over it just like the original. Yet all their praise never helped HTC sales. Design this design that, oh so beautiful! At the end, they're either using S5 or iPhone 5s. Wpc, if you ever become like those fools.... I'll!!!! Sorry its off topic but this Nokia rumor plus the addition of every tech just pissing in there pants because of the One2One, including imore just pisses me off.
  • I'll take mine shaken, not stirred!
  • I'll have my 920 for another year. Don't see anything interesting now. Goldfinger will probably be my next phone.
  • I am so excited about what we are gonna see
  • Glad that it is 2nd April not 1st
  • Nokia always surprises people, I think there will be more than 2 devices
  • Maybe Lumia 530
  • I'll do another year with my 920, nothing interesting coming. Goldfinger will probably be my next phone.
  • Here's hoping that the 930 is more akin to the 1520 design than then Icon. Also hoping for a 1020 refresh
  • Bought a 1520 recently. I cannot wait for 8.1.
  • I hope Nokia announces a partnership with Sprint.
  • DITTO!!
  • Sooo excite!!!!!!
  • Amazing day
  • I hope for something metal aka lumia 925
  • Same here!  Also hope it'd be available for T-Mobile.
  • Will there be a "Skyfall" device?
  • +2520
  • What about the 1820?
  • It doesn't exist. It was a fake rumour. Also, WP8.1 devices will be X30 (930, 630, etc...). Nokia is done with X20 series, those were WP8 devices. Doesn't make any sense to think about any more of those coming in the future.
  • Woooohoooooo!!! Crazily EXCITED!!!
  • Come on Nokia!! One Last Time!!
  • What about rock ie, Lumia 530
  • I wish the 930 would have the Snapdragon 801 processor but it seems that internally the phone is going to be very similar to the ICON... Oh god, I'll be buying one anyway... This waiting is making me sick...
  • I see a BBM logo in the animation..
    . Did anyone notice ???
  • Maybe we'll get a hint of Lumia Blue :O
  • I'll have a Martini please. Shaken, not stirred.
  • So pist about the Goldfinger, I expected it way earlier.
  • Uhh...exciting! :-D
  • if you go to the conversations website, you can see a smartwatch in the "more" picture
  • Got my 1020 its the Lumia I need!!!
  • My iPhone 4 is looooong in the tooth. I had my wife get a 920 when they came out. It's a great phone. It's a bit heavy for my pocket and it has had battery problems that have scared me away. I've tried turning every setting off that could possibly drain the battery, but it still doesn't come close to lasting as long as my iPhone. I've been waiting for a faster, lighter Windows phone with better battery performance. Unfortunately, one came out for Verizon and we're an AT&T household. I'm very excited about April 2. 
  • I really do hope the 930 gets released in April already so I can have my upgrade in May :D
  • Damn my term tests are on 3rd!Btw FEED ME MORE!
  • I hope T-mobile gets some new Windows phones soon. I have a 925 but man I want a 1520.  
  • Please arrive before the 27th of April! Wanna have SOMETHING new just for once on my birthday >:I
  • i want 1520 but i would'nt mind  a lumia 1520 with 5 to 5,5 inches screen size. i like this phone alot but the size makes me think twice before buy.
  • Any news on when WP 8.1 will be available to us commonfolk?
  • well... martini
  • I would get a 930, but now I'm intrigued about this Goldfinger. It will take ages to be available in my market, but well, I'll have time to save cash.
  • do nokia think to laucn h a powerfull small from factor smartphone ?
    likea boosted lumia620 ? :love:
  • Look like low end device
  • so 630 wont have flash in real.
  • I just hoping that they have an unlocked 930 with all the LTE band in one phone.  I sick of buying a phone that is limited just for carrier protection of their territory where Apple iPhone and Googles Nexus phones have all the LTE bands rolled together and is sold unlock without contract! More people are dishing the contract base and going with buy a phone out right! Just hope Nokia has some guts and sell this 930 phone on their Nokia website like Apple and Google Playstore is doing now!  
  •   how long till the live stream???
