Nokia to launch Lumia 630 and Lumia 930 at Build 2014?

Microsoft Build 2014A recent rumour suggested that Nokia would hold its next event on April 19. Unlike the last one at Mobile World Congress where it unveiled its new Android-powered Nokia X line of entry-level smartphones, this one would reportedly bring the spotlight back on the Lumia line and Windows Phone. There was some doubt even then about the date and a new rumour now suggests that the next Nokia Lumia smartphones could in fact be unveiled earlier.

According to MyNokiaBlog, Nokia will unveil the Lumia 630 (codename Moneypenny) and Lumia 930 (codename Martini) at Build 2014. The Microsoft event will take place between April 2 and April 4, 2014. It is widely expected that Microsoft will unveil Windows Phone 8.1 (codenamed Blue during development) at the event and Nokia may well be invited on stage to announce the first two devices to use the new operating system.

As the likely successor to the Lumia 620 and 625, the Nokia Lumia 630 appears to be another entry-level device. It is expected to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, a 4.5-inch FWVGA (480×854) display, 1GB of RAM and in single-SIM and dual-SIM configurations.

Less is known about the Nokia 930 but it could be an international version of the Lumia Icon offered by Verizon Wireless. It is expected to come with a smaller 4.5-inch Full HD (1080×1920) display.

It may well be that Nokia planned to hold an event on April 19 before plans changed and it was invited by future owner Microsoft to present the new devices at Build 2014 instead.

The report adds that a third Nokia Lumia device, another flagship device codenamed Goldfinger, has been pushed back and will not be announced at Build 2014. Little is known about the Goldfinger. The codename first surfaced last year and could sport some kind of 3D touch technology if other early rumours are to be believed.
