It was announced during the keynote of Build 2014 (a developer conference) by Stephen Elop. No word about a release in Canada since they only mentionned "Europe, Asia and Latin America" during the keynote.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
this is just a global variant on the Icon, it will not be released in North America any time soon, More. I would expect new high end devices maybe in September. The 635 will probably come to Canada but that is a low end device.
I'm actually really hoping that this phone is released in Canada. I've owned a lumia 920 for two years and it has been a great phone, but this lumia 930 has a few features that I would really like to have. Larger screen, thiner case and better camera while keeping all the other features I enjoy. Not to mention that the timing would be just right for me to upgrade.
You are probably right that September will have some new models for Canada but I've got a vacation planned for before then and I would really like to have a lumia 930 and its better camera.
May have to buy this somewhere else.
it has already been stated that this phone will not be getting a NA release as it is the same phone as the Lumia Icon and already available in the USA on verizon.
