Following the announcement of Windows Phone 8.1, Nokia took the stage and announced the corresponding Lumia devices that will rock the new version of the mobile operating system.

Leading the bunch is the Nokia Lumia 930, which is basically the international version of the Lumia Icon that is being offered by Verizon in the United States. The phone packs a 5-inch Full HD MAOLED display with Nokia’s ClearBlack technology.

The brain of the Lumia 930 is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip with a 2.2GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of non-expandable storage. The handset also comes with a 20MP PureView camera with a 1/2.5-inch BSI sensor with f/2.4 aperture, optical image stabilisation and dual-LED flash.

Just like other Lumias bearing the PureView camera, the Lumia 930 is also capable of capturing full resolution photos and scaling them down to 5MP images for easier transfer. Moreover, Nokia has added a number of photo-enhancing apps including Nokia Camera, Creative studio and Cinemagraph.

The Finnish company also announced two new budget Windows Phones – the Lumia 630 and Lumia 635. Both phones have identical specs with the exception of an LTE radio found on the Lumia 635.

The phones come with a 4.5-inch FWVGA display with Nokia’s ClearBlack technology on an IPS panel covered with Gorilla Glass 3 panel. The core of both phones is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chip with a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage which is expandable via a microSD card. The Lumia 630 is also offered as a dual-SIM version.

The Nokia Lumia 930 will be available sometime in June for around $599 while the Lumia 630 and 635 will be priced at $159 and $169 respectively when it hit stores in May.
