Rumor: Nokia to Announce Lumia 630/Money-penny and 930/Martini at Build 2014

| March 20, 2014 | 100 Replies


With build 2014 right around the corner, and WP 8.1 launch on the way we’ve begun hearing whispers of what to expect besides the new OS upgrade. We’ve heard from a trusted source that Nokia will be on stage alongside Microsoft to announce two new WP 8.1 devices. the two devices cover both the low end and high end of the spectrum, starting with the much rumored and leaked Lumia 630 or “Moneypenny”, which comes in both single sim and dual sim flavors along with on screen keys, but sans a flash button.

The second rumored device is the Lumia 930 or “Martini”, which has yet to leak fully; but we understand that it might be a Lumia icon re-purposed for global distribution (in a different body); but our source didn’t go into details.

Both devices are expected to launch at Microsoft’s build conference this April, however we’ve also heard that Nokia’s other high end flagship device code-named “goldfinger” has been pushed back in terms of time frame, and will not be announced at build.

Although this is all a rumor, we believe in the reliability of our source and are optimistic about the accuracy of said news; of course you might want to keep a pinch of salt ready either way.

    Are we sure these will be WP 8.1 devices, though? At MWC Microsoft announced one more GDR to WP8 which would bring dual-SIM and on-screen keys. It might mean these will ship around Build, but not yet with WP 8.1? Or why else would Microsoft have announced such an intermediate software version at MWC?

    • Janne says:

      Of course they will get WP 8.1 updates, I’m just speculating on what they will ship with initially.

      • Viipottaja says:

        Funnily enough I never read about that announcement but I am sure you are right. If you happen to have a link handy, that would nice.

        anyway, I guess it all depends on the timeline they have planned between announcement and availability.

        my guess is that they will be announced and made available as 8.1 devices. In a less likely scenario they are announced as 8.1 devices but made initially available only with the GDR you mentioned.

    Any leaks or educated guesses re: 930 and Goldfinger specs? 930 we know may basically be an international Icon (in more ways than one :P), but Goldfinger?

    • Janne says:

      Well, both probably come without capacitive keys? Could Goldfinger be the rumoured “relaunch of 1520 for AT&T”? Perhaps without capacitive keys, built-in PMA wireless charging and a Microsoft Lumia badge on front? Plus new colors… Or could Lumia 1520 get such treatment under some other codename…

      Just guessing.

      • Simo says:

        If that’s the case I’ll be choosing between the RM-938 version of the 1520 (our North American Unicorn… LTE bands, unlocked, + built-in Qi) and the 930. I want my Nokia logo and only Qi Wireless for me for now.

    • aliqudsi says:

      Moat rumors and signs point to goldfinger being a very high specced flagship, with the newly patented 3d touch and gestures. Which was rumored to have been delayed due to not getting the 3d touch “done” in time.

    • Qba says:

      Lumia 930 “Martini” is known as 1520V or 1520 Mini and have 4,5″ 1920×1080 screen, Snapdragon 800, 2 GB RAM, 2370 mAh battery, 16 GB flash, design similar to Lumia 1520.

      Lumia 1820 “Goldfinger” have 5,2″ 2560×1440 display, Snapdragon 805, 3 GB RAM, 3400 mAh battery, 32 GB flash, Lytro camera, Xenon flash, design similar to Lumia Icon.

      Lumia 1525 is refreshed 1520 with 2560×1440 display, Snapdragon 805 and 3 GB RAM.

  3. Simo says:

    Or could Goldfinger be the international Icon, and the 930 closer to the 920′s size?

      • Viipottaja says:

        If the 1820 is not too largely physically and the Lytro camera not too gimmicky, would sound like my next phone.. :) Also depends on when these are coming out.

        You wouldn’t have heard of dimensions on these?

    Build is a dev conference. Why there? Also, I wonder if Elop will be a Microsoftie by then.

    • Janne says:

      Developers will probably get those devices in their hands there. Plus Microsoft will use that event to launch the new OS for those devices. Not unlike Apple has done at their developer conferences, where they have often announced hardware too. You have your own event, your own audience, so that’s a good platform for announcements – or so the thinking goes anyway. They’ll probably invite press too for any announcement they might make there.

      And yes, Elop will quite possibly be a “Microsoftie” then if the publicly announced timeline of Q1 closing holds and none of the events e.g. India delay it.

  5. sbw44 says:

    When can we expect a 1020 successor?

    • Simo says:

      I wouldn’t expect that until Q4 at the earliest.

    • dss says:

      Sometime in 2014.

      Also Microsoft are moving their NAM HQ from Sunnyvale to the Microsoft campus in Mountain View.

    • Viipottaja says:

      I would not completely rule out a faster, “i” type update to up to specs to speed up the camera functions.

      But yeah, the direct successor may take a long time. Some other new camera tech in a differently positioned device might come out Q3-Q4.

      • Janne says:

        Isn’t it *so* wrong that the letter “i” doesn’t mean 2110i anymore. :)

        BTW: Lumia 1020 update might be Lumia 1025. Then again, if we see Lumia 930 first, a Lumia 1030 might be likely too – as an update, not as a majorly different product. I think seeing a Lumia 1025 after Lumia 930 is unlikely.

    A bit off-topic: Any news on 1020 successor?


    • raj says:
