Nokia’s beautiful design language lives on. One of my favourite designs lie in the Lumia 925 which stands to date as the most beautiful Lumia available to me. The other one, currently not selling in my region is the Verizon exclusive Lumia 929 Icon. Lumia Icon was announced sometime in February and availed in the US on Verizon the same month.Now for design lovers like me, we have something to look forward to come April along the lines of Lumia Icon for a global version. This device which is rumoured to be the Lumia 930 and code-named “Martini” according to leakster EVLeaks and is expected to come running Windows Phone 8.1. Expectedly, it will be a beautiful device with at least 4.5 inches of screen display and specifications that are close to what the Lumia Icon possesses.
The Render of the Lumia 930 does look sleek but drops the metal edge design that both the Lumia 925 and Lumia 929 have, and this makes me feel like the render missed something. Another thing that make the render look rather off is the stark absence of a flash, natural to any high end device. The display looks rather large though, like it could be within 5 inches and also looks matte.
The Lumia 930 could look and feel quite good if it did come wearing the Lumia Icon specs sheet:
