Yesterday I wrote with green eyes when I reported that the Nokia Lumia 930 Golden Collector’s Edition was arriving later this month in China. Considering the relatively low volume, just 3,000 units, we assumed the phone would be exclusive to China.
But nope! Turns out the gold Nokia Lumia 930 is heading to further “select countries”, including some in Europe, with a gold Nokia Lumia 830 in tow.
The announcement was made over on the Lumia Conversations blog, where it’s reiterated that we’re talking about an “anodized gold color” as opposed to actual gold.
Specifically, the gold Nokia Lumia 930 will arrive from this week with a black rear, while a second version with a white rear will follow later in the month.
As for the gold Nokia Lumia 830, it’s pencilled in for a February arrival, and again will be available with a choice of black or white on the rear.
Other than the gold trim, Nokia Lumia 930 and Lumia 830 specs remain unchanged, so you’re still getting wireless charging and Cortana on both (where available), with Carl Zeiss optics and Windows Phone 8.1.
Price will vary by region and operator, but we’ll be keeping an eye out for the golden Nokia Lumia 930 and Lumia 830 here in the UK. Like?
