Remember the recent reports about Nokia possibly bringing to light a trio of new Lumia smartphones at a special press event on April 19? As it turns out, they may have not been particularly accurate. But there was something to them.
Namely, if we’re to trust fresh gossip, new Lumias are indeed coming, just not on April 19. Instead, they’ll allegedly see daylight earlier, during Microsoft’s Build Developer Conference. Debuting on April 2 and wrapping up two days later, the happening is widely believed to once and for all make Windows Phone 8.1 official.
As such, whatever Nokia unveils at Build, it’ll no doubt run this WP update. Expected out before long, the Lumia 930, aka “Martini”, and Lumia 630, aka “Moneypenny”, shall be showcased in San Francisco two weeks from now.
The 930 is of course the higher-end device, likely incorporating Lumia Icon’s hardware specifications in a sleeker, slimmer package. Hopefully, not a lot chintzier though.
Meanwhile, the Lumia 630, as the name suggests, will fit somewhere between flagships like the 930 and entry-level gadgets such as the 520, 525 and upcoming 530 on the Windows Phone totem pole. What does that mean exactly in terms of specs?
No one knows for sure, but current speculation circles a list of features highlighted by a 4.5-inch 800 x 480 pix res display, dual-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 400 chip, 1 GB RAM, 8 MP rear-facing camera and optional dual SIM support.
