It wasn’t too long ago that we caught wind that Nokia might have a new Windows Phone handset in the works called the Nokia Martini. This was revealed not too long after MWC 2014 where the Finnish company unveiled new Asha handsets and their Nokia X lineup of Android phones, so safe to say many were expecting Windows Phone handsets to be announced further down the line.
That being said, @evleakshas recently tweeted that the Nokia Martini is actually the codename for the Nokia Lumia 930, which based on earlier rumors and speculation, would basically be the international variant of the Nokia Lumia Icon.
For those unfamiliar with the Nokia Lumia Icon, the handset is basically a smaller version of the Lumia 1520. It would pack similar hardware but instead of a whopping 6-inch display, the Lumia Icon would instead come with a slightly more manageable 5-inch display, making this a smaller but equally powerful handset.
Users who aren’t fans of the phablet design will probably opt for this since it is more compact, although we guess compact is a subjective term since we all have different hand sizes and use our phones differently.
In any case there’s no telling when Nokia will be announcing the Nokia Lumia 930, but earlier rumors have suggested that Nokia could be holding an event on the 19th of April which could be when Nokia is scheduled to make some Windows Phone-related announcements. Apart from the Lumia 930, other devices like the Lumia 630 and Lumia 635 are expected to be announced as well.
