Nokia has just lifted the lid on the Nokia Lumia 930, one of three new Lumia smartphones that run Windows Phone 8.1 (the latest version of Windows Phone). This new high-end smartphone by the Finnish firm comes with hardware that would make any tech junkie happy. It sports a 5-inch ClearBlack 1080p screen, a 20-megapixel rear-facing PureView camera with ZEISS optics, and a powerful 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor. Wait there’s more! It also sports 5.1 Dolby Digital Plus audio recording, making the Lumia 930 the first smartphone to offer the feature.
According to Nokia, “Combining Dolby Surround Sound Capturing with Nokia Rich Recording, all of your videos will document exactly what you hear. Play it back and you’ll experience true surround sound in 5.1 Dolby Digital Plus format.”
Once Nokia rolls out its Windows Phone 8.1 update for Lumia handsets dubbed “Lumia Cyan,” there will be other devices to sport the feature. These are the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet and the Nokia Lumia Icon, a device similar to the Lumia 930 only sold in the US.
Nokia said, “With Windows Phone 8.1, both the Lumia 1520 and Nokia Lumia Icon are capable of capturing better sound, thanks to Dolby Surround Sound support. A feature that can also be found on the new Lumia 930.”
So when do you get to get your hands on the Nokia Lumia 930? According to the Finnish firm, the smartphone “is expected to roll out globally in June starting with Europe, Asia, Middle East and India” and will set you back “USD 599 before taxes and subsidies.” This means that the new device will cost around £360.
