    @Robnewton: How was it with the 920?
    The 920 was released 4 weeks later

    Released, yes. But it was announced before that, right?

    Hoping for a trademark Lumia design with colorful polycarbonate and that European flair. The Icon is hideous, but I guess it caters to many Americans' respective tastes. Definitely follows Verizon's awful design language.

    I'm guessing the display will be no smaller than 5", but that'll put it at exactly the same size as the Lumia 920 (the 920, despite its smaller display, is exactly the same size as the Icon). I'd love for a 5.2" or 5.3" display though.

    Hope when you all say polycarbonate you mean with matte finish and not that awful glossy like 920, mine is all scratchy, reassembles the back of a Samsung phone, really cheap and the "plastification" it's starting to wear off, like it's falling apart and i used with a case and only have it for about 8 months.

    I personally don't mind either, but like you, I'd prefer a matte finish. Would love to see orange added to the flagship colorwheel. We've only seen shades of orange and green with mid and low range models.

    I got a yellow 920 at launch and have dropped it a few times, but it still looks great. The difference in quality Nokia brings really starts to show up the older the phone gets... especially with the polymer penetrating the breadth of the shell, scratches and scuffs are hardly noticeable. I bet my 920 will look better 5 years down the road than most non-Nokias that are only 1 or 2 years old.

    I think, this time Nokia should have a different design. Should use Aluminum with Sapphire glass to give it a premium look at feel. I am not saying polycarbonate is bad. But for a change I want something new.

    With grain of salt in hand, read on Twitter (LumiaLeaks) that the 930 will have at least a 5" display and that April 25 could be the release date.

    Why "grain of salt"? 5 inch screen isnt bad. It all depends on the mass of the surrounding case

    I just mean because the source isn't necessarily known yet. Also I was referring more to the release date. But I agree, I'd hope it's at least 5". I wouldn't mind 5.2" or 5.3" at all in fact. To your point about the casing, I put my Lumia 920 side by side and then right on top of the Icon... one sports a 4.5" display and the other 5", but they looked to be the exact same size.

    I think the same about the quality, my cousin has a Galaxy S3 and the letters in Samsung logo are starting to fall and the plastic is more awful that when it was new but both Lumia and S3 have that glossy finish, yeah, Nokia last longer and it's more solid but the scratches when you see it at light are kinda of a letdown, so, matte finish all the way!

    sadly I heard of this today, hopefully some of the guys on WPcentral can correct this ( or conform).
    If there was no 930 I'll just pick a white 1520.

    So disappointing. But it all makes sense now... no visual leaks at all about the 930, not even a render. We probably should have seen it coming.

    I might just go with a 1520 as well, or not upgrade my 920 at all until later in the year. This would suck.

    I didn't get this quite well. At worst 930 will be delayed by a month. I know it hurts, I too am bit disappointed because of that delay. But I don't think they will delay it by 2-3 months, if they do that, definately I will CURSE nokia

    It doesn't make any sense to introduce a new series of devices starting with the low-end (even if it sells more). First image is important, Nokia introduces a low-end device first and their brand will forever be associated to low-end. Could happen but it would be a massive mistake.

    I honestly don't see Nokia holding an event to announce a low end phone. Remember, there were no leaks of the Nokia XL till the day of the announcement. Same might be the case here. We might even have more phones than the 930 and 630. Then again, we might not. We'll see in 2 days

    Nokia hosted an event for a low-end device in Fabruary for a low-end device, now less than 2 months after that they host another event for another low-end phone? What kind of image do they want to pass to the market? King of the low-end?

    Not sure if you know this poiman, but... the low end IS the market. I think the 1520 and Icon are recent enough that Nokia is not at risk of sending a message of 'we only do low end'.

    But I think we might wait longer for a new flagship.

    I've been too poor *** this past few months to upgrade from my 920 so I'm still rocking that anyways. Screen is all yellow in the middle and on the edges but aside from that it's still almost perfect (screen does kinda ruin it though and I'm out of warranty). Completely off topic but does anyone know if 920 will get the 'show more tiles' ?

    The thing is, most of the low-end sales aren't driven by this kind of events. This events mostly appeal to those who follow the industry closely and those are mostly looking for high-end and mid range devices. Low-end phones sell best among people who don't care so much for smartphones and they do good because they are cheap. So this raises the question: does it really make sense to host 2 events for 2 low-end devices in such a short period of time? I don't think so but NOKIA may think differently.

    And yes, 3 columns of tiles are coming to the 920.

    This becomes more and more believable the longer we go without a visual leak. Countless 630 leaks, none for the 930.
