Nokia holding an event on May 15th in Brazil, may launch Lumia 630 and 930Written by Hammad Saleem on May 02, 2014 - 07:44AM @hammadsalim
Nokia unveiled the Lumia 630, 635, and 930 at Build last month. The 630 and 635 are expected to hit the market this month, while the launch for the high-end Lumia 930 is expected to take place in July in several regions -- and it's not coming to the US. Recently, the folks at Windows Phone Brasil received an invite from Microsoft about an event on May 15th in Sao Paulo.
There's no word from Microsoft about the focus of the event, but it seems Microsoft may launch the Nokia Lumia 930 and 630 for the Brazilian market. Windows Phone is quite popular and holds a market share of 5.5 percent in the region, according to Kantar -- it's even higher in Argentina where it has a 12.9 percent share. Lumia 630 will be the first Windows Phone 8.1 device, along with the Lumia 635, and can take the place of the best-selling Lumia 520.
Lumia 930 is going to be in an interesting device too, since it comes with high-end specifications and it isn't as big as the Lumia 1520. It rocks a 5-inch 1080p display with Snapdragon 800 SoC under the hood. It also comes with 32GB storage, 2GB of RAM, and an impressive 20MP PureView camera with Carl Zeiss optics for photography enthusiasts. On the software side, it runs the latest Windows Phone 8.1.
There's no word about the pricing of the handsets, but we'll find it out in the coming weeks.
