It appears that Nokia didn’t come to it’s Microsoft’s Mobile Event empty-handed in Sandton last night. This time, the phone maker has announced the Lumia 930, which is, as dubbed by Engadget, essentially the international version of the Lumia Icon. Which is to say, it features a 5-inch full HD display and a 20-megapixel PureView camera with a Zeiss lens. The camera is clearly the star of the show here: not only does it have optical image stabilization, but the phone also ships with a Creative Studio app that’ll let you add Instagram-style filters to your snapshots. There’s also a new feature called “Living Images” that can be weaved into Nokia’s Storyteller application. Photos and videos are automatically sorted by time and location, and if you want to be all fancy, you can add music to the background when viewing the images. While the handset is already available in other markets, it’s said to reach SA in September.
You can view live shots from the live event after the break.
