Nokia today introduced its flagship Windows 8.1 smartphone, the 5-inch sized Lumia 930. The phone features a 2.2GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor, 20-megapixel PureView camera with ZEISS optics and advanced Rich Recording, along with integrated Microsoft services like OneDrive and Microsoft Office. It also boasts a 1080p Full HD display (1920×1080; 441ppi), with Gorilla Glass 3, Super Sensitive Touch and a near 180-degree viewing angle, plus a front-facing HD 1.2 MP wide-angle camera.
The Nokia Lumia 930 includes four high-performance microphones, which allows directional recording that enhances the clarity of your subjects by rejecting the sounds outside the direction of capture. In addition, integrated Dolby Surround Sound makes for a similarly rich audio experience when watching movies or listening to music with your headphones or home theatre system.
Powering everything along is a speedy 2.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 32GB of internal storage (7GB free OneDrive cloud storage) and 2GB of RAM.
The new Nokia Lumia 930 also comes with highly regarded imaging apps such as Nokia Camera, Nokia Storyteller, Nokia Creative Studio and Nokia Refocus. With the enhanced Nokia Camera with Living Images you can now capture and relive your memories in a new, fun and exciting way. A new imaging experience adds an integrated Camera Roll with full megapixel zoom and improved sharpness algorithms, while the new Creative Studio app makes image post-editing even easier and richer.
The Lumia 930 is encased in an aluminum frame with metallic accents, and a nicely curved polycarbonate back with vibrant colour choices of bright orange, bright green, black and white. An optional Nokia Case CP-637 provides a soft microfiber lining, protecting and cleaning your screen when not in use. This case comes in three colors, bright orange, bright green and black.

The Nokia Lumia 930 is expected to roll out globally in June 2014 starting with Europe, Asia, Middle East and India, available from $599 (USD) before taxes and subsidies.
