Last month, Mi­crosoft De­vices in­vited us to their of­fice for a brief pre­view of what we be­lieve to be the most beau­ti­fully crafted phone from them to date: the Lumia 930. At one point, the Lumia 930 was known as the Lumia Icon. As the Lumia Icon, it was only avail­able within the U.S. via a sin­gle mo­bile ser­vice provider: Ver­i­zon. In terms of spec­i­fi­ca­tions, the Lumia 930 very closely mim­ics that of its big­ger brother, the Lumia 1520. What's dif­fer­ent about these two phones is that the Lumia 1520 has a 6-inch diplay, while the Lumia 930 is an inch smaller at 5-inches.

Another dif­fer­ence be­tween this phone and the Lumia 1520 is the dis­tinct lack of an ex­pand­able stor­age card slot, which means the only stor­age that the Lumia 930 has is its own in­ter­nal stor­age ca­pac­ity, cou­pled with the free 15GB of cloud space stor­age given by Mi­crosoft's OneDrive.

Dur­ing the walk­through, we were also in­formed that Mi­crosoft De­vices would be rolling out the lat­est Lumia CYAN up­date for all of its Win­dows Phone 8.1 de­vices un­der the Lumia lineup some­time within the third quar­ter of 2014.

The Lumia 930 is al­ready avail­able at au­tho­rized Nokia Stores and re­sellers and will re­tail at a price point of RM1,999. In ad­di­tion to the phone, Nokia will also be of­fer­ing a free Nokia Treasure Tag, a 4,400mAh power bank, and a Flip Cover in order to pro­tect the de­vice.
