There have been various leaks already in the last couple of days but today Microsoft made it official, the Nokia Lumia 830 and the Nokia Lumia 930 will be available in Gold very soon. Both devices have an aluminum frame like we know it from the Nokia Lumia 925 and in this edition we will get a golden aluminum frame with either a black or a white back cover.
If you want to buy the Nokia Lumia 830 you’ll need some patience because this Windows Phone will be available in February in Black and White with a golden aluminum frame furthermore you have to be one of the lucky ones who is living in the countries where the device will be offered. Starting in February the device will be available in selected countries of Europe Asia Pacific and China, and India, the Middle East and Africa while the price can vary from operator to operator and from country to country.
The Nokia Lumia 930 in black on the other hand will be available this week already, for the white version you will have to wait until the end of January. Also the Lumia 930 will be available only in selected countries and regions, which are the following: Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa and China. Same counts for the price which may vary from operator to operator and from country to country.
Microsoft is probably offering the Nokia Lumia 930 in Gold a bit earlier than the Nokia Lumia 830 because the 830 has been released bit later than the 930 and therefore there might not be that much people interested in the 830 because they have already bought one. However, if you haven’t got all the specs of these two devices in mind I have listed them below for you once again so see which of the two devices would be the ideal choice for you.
