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.
Just remember that this phone and the icon are not able to run the glance screen, one feature that is nice to have.
