Alongside Microsoft’s unveiling of the latest version of its Windows Phone platform, Nokia unveiled a trio of devices powered by the OS, which also include a “series of exclusive Nokia features”.
At the high-end, the company announced Lumia 930 (pictured), which offers “the ultimate video and imaging experience”. The 5-inch screen device includes a 20 megapixel PureView camera, and is powered by a 2.2GHz quadcore processor.
It is expected to be available from June, starting with Europe, Asia, the Middle East and India. Prices start at $599 before taxes and subsidies.
At the “affordable” level, it announced Lumia 630 and its LTE sibling, Lumia 635. Features include 4.5-inch screen and changeable shells, and the devices are powered by a 1.2GHz quadcore processor.
Lumia 630 availability is expected in May, beginning with Asia, India, the Middle East, South America and Europe, priced at $159 in single SIM and $169 as “the first Lumia with 3G dual SIM”.
Lumia 635 will be “broadly available, including the US, starting this summer”, from $189.
Features specific to Nokia devices include enhancements to the camera roll and Creative Studio, as well as an improved Storyteller app, for sharing stories as a video slideshow on social networks.
And the new devices also see the introduction of SensorCore, which provides low-power motion sensing alongside the Bing Health & Fitness app.
The company also said that later this year it will update existing Windows Phone 8 devices with a package called Lumia Cyan, which will “combine Windows Phone 8.1 and unique Lumia features into one update package”.
