Nokia Lumia 930 lands in the KSA

August 9, 2014

We brought you the news about Microsoft Devices’ launch of the Nokia Lumia 930 straight from Dubai, and now, the device is strutting its stuff in Saudi Arabia.

Besides the ultra clear 5” Full HD OLED display, Windows Phone 8.1 makes you want to reach for the Live Tiles as it gives you a lucid view of the images of customized apps over the tiles.

In fact, the Lumia 930 joins its Lumia 630 sibling in being the first handsets to feature the Windows Phone 8.1 update. 

We know how much Lumias love color, and this time around, Microsoft has stayed true to the heritage, adding new vibrant shades to the line.

If you’re an Xbox junkie or constantly use Windows Phone, PC or tabs, you’ll enjoy making use of the 930’s ability of syncing a range of data from videos and photos to documents.

“In today’s social world, capturing and sharing video is more important than ever,” said Jon French, Vice President GCC, Microsoft Mobile Devices. “The Lumia 930 provides the perfect blend of Microsoft and Lumia to deliver cutting-edge imaging technology for an unrivalled video and imaging experience on a smartphone.”

Another favorite: you can stay away from running out of battery thanks to the 2420 mAh battery and built-in wireless charging.

Seeing images in high resolution is also easy with the 20MP PureView camera with optical image stabilization, which is pretty much becoming the norm nowadays, especially as it comes in handy when shooting a moving focal point. So when you’re friend is catching a Frisbee in mid-air, feel free to catch them doing so without the spectacle of getting a blurred image.

In addition to the Nokia Camera being enhanced with Living Images that allow users to give more life to graphics, apps like Nokia Storyteller have been included to bring more creativity to images.

Turn on the mics (figuratively speaking). Four integrated microphones offer high quality recording and performance with surround sound supported.

You can depend on the Action Center to allow for one-swipe notifications, and take advantage of features like the uber popular Microsoft Office and HERE Maps and Drive+.

SensoreCore is another cool feature to look out for on the 930. It allows you to track your daily activity without draining the device’s battery. Fitness is clearly the emerging trend in tech, as we’ve stated several times, which is made evident on this device with the inclusion of the Bing Health and Fitness app.
