Earlier this month, Nokia unveiled three new Windows Phone 8.1 powered handsets: Nokia Lumia 630, 635 and 930. The first two are budget devices, and is expected to launch in various parts of the globe in May, while the high-end Lumia 930 will hit retail in June. The Lumia 630/635 will hit retail in some European countries for €149.90, but there's no word about the exact launch date nor pricing of the Lumia 930. Recently, the folks at Plaffo are reporting, citing a source who has been reliable in the past, that the Nokia Lumia 930 will hit Italian shores in June for €599.90/649.90.
The Nokia Lumia 930 brings high-end specifications to the table -- it's basically the Nokia Lumia Icon for international markets. For those of you who can't recall, Lumia 930 rocks a 5-inch 1080p display, and comes with a quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC clocked at 2.2GHz with 2GB of RAM on board. Other features include 32GB internal storage with an additional 7GB SkyDrive storage, 20MP camera with PureView technology and Carl Zeiss Optics, a 2,420 mAh battery and runs the latest Windows Phone 8.1 OS out of the box.
It's not confirmed at the moment so a grain of salt is advised. It won't be a surprise if the price turns out to be around €600, as flagship devices from other OEMs are also running for a similar price tag in Europe. We'll update you as soon as it becomes official.
