THE NOKIA LUMIA 930 has gone up for pre-order in the UK with a £525 SIM-free price tag.
That's thanks to Unlocked Mobiles, which has become the first to reveal a price for Nokia's latest flagship Windows Phone. The retailer is offering the Nokia Lumia 930 for £524.95 SIM-free, and is promising to ship orders on 1 July. However, the retailer is presently offering the Nokia Lumia 930 only in black and white, with the orange and lime green models nowhere to be seen.
It's worth noting that Nokia has yet to announce availability details, beyond saying that a "late June/early July" release date is likely. We have contacted the firm for more information.
The Nokia Lumia 930 was unveiled earlier this year, ahead of Microsoft's takeover of the Finnish phone maker's devices business. As a flagship device, the Lumia 930 arrives running Microsoft's Windows Phone 8.1 mobile operating system, which has features such as the ability to set custom background wallpapers and a pull-down notifications menu.
The Nokia Lumia 930 has a 5in HD 1080p touchscreen powered by a quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM.
There's a 20MP rear-facing Pureview camera, which - while not as impressive as the Nokia Lumia 1020's 41MP snapper - features Zeiss optics, optical image stablisation and the ability to shoot HD 1080p video.
There's also a 1.2MP camera on the front of the handset. Beyond that, the Nokia Lumia 930 features Bluetooth 4.0, LTE support, a 2,420mAh battery and support for wireless charging.
For those after a lower specification, more affordable Windows Phone device, Unlocked Mobiles has also started taking pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 630, which is available for just under £200.
