Nokia Lumia 930 is a Windows Phone 8.1 flagship

After being leaked just a couple of hours ago, the Nokia Lumia 930 is finally here. Announced earlier today at Microsoft's Build conference, the Nokia Lumia 930 is Microsoft's Windows Phone 8.1 flagship device.

It also bears a strong resemblance to the Verizon-exclusive Nokia Lumia Icon. In fact, you will realize later on that everything about the two phones are similar, all but except for Windows Phone 8.1 and the improved LTE compatibility. Given the case, it's safe to say that the Lumia 930 is the global version of the Lumia Icon, although Nokia isn't marketing it that way.

The main selling point of the phone, unsurprisingly, is its camera. The Nokia Lumia 930 features a 20-megapixel PureView camera with optical image stabilization and ZEISS optics. There's also a 1.2-megapixel HD wide-angle camera on the front for those selfies, if you're into them anyway.

Based on today's standards, the phone's 5-inch 1080p Full HD display is just about right. The screen, by the way, has a 1,920 x 1,080p resolution and a 441 ppi. The screen is made from Corning Gorilla Glass 3 technology and it supports a near 180-degree viewing angle.

Under the hood is the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.2GHz. Backing all that processing power is a 2GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a 2420 mAh battery. And, yes, the Lumia 930 supports wireless charging, so don't frown at the decent battery capacity just yet.

Design-wise, the phone dons an aluminium frame and a curved polycarbonate back. Available in bright orange, bright green, black, and white, the Nokia Lumia 930 is priced at $599 and will hit Europe, Asia, India, the Middle East, and Latin America in June.

"Today we are introducing people to the best of Lumia and the best of Microsoft through three stunning devices based on Windows Phone 8.1. In addition to the new developments from Microsoft, Nokia is delivering people an uncompromised imaging experience, great design and better business phones," said Stephen Elop, executive vice president of Nokia's Devices & Services. "We're also pleased to bring the great developments in Windows Phone 8.1 to the Lumia devices people love today."
