    For me the Lumia 930 perfect screen size would be a 4.7 inch device, 5 inches feels a little big for me, but we'll see I guess. And with the rumors saying it has a 16GB internal, I hope it comes in 32 along with the rumored microSD card slot. And I hope to heavens, that ATT doesn't leave out the Qi wireless charging like they did with the 1520!
    You should check out the Icon in person. It sports a 5" display yet it's the exact same size as the Lumia 920, which of course has a 4.5" display. The increased display size doesn't necessarily mean a bigger phone, but I personally wouldn't mind if it's a little bigger to accommodate a display greater than 5".

    Totally agree with you! 5.3" is the sweet spot for me. I'll also buy it if it's 5" or 5.5" though.
    If it is smaller than 5" I'll have to think twice! Oh god, after so many months waiting, I can't even imagine this scenario. I believe I would cry!
    Exactly my train of thought. I'll have a hard time justifying the cost if it's smaller than 5". I suspect we're not the only ones either... it seems quite a few Lumia fans are waiting for a flagship in the 5-5.5" range. Let's hope Nokia took note!

    Haha!@cry. I would just get the 1520 if it's(the 930) less than 5.4". Spec wise, the 1520 is up there
    I think I may do the same... if it's too small, I'll just get one of the new RM-938 versions of the 1520 since I'm in the U.S.

    I doubt it would be a 4.5" if it's an upgrade from the Lumia 920. Hoping for 4.8"-5.3"
    A Lumia Leaks account on Twitter says they confirm it'll be "at least" 5 inches. NokiaPowerUser claims 5.2". I really hope it's the latter, at least, but I've become more confident that it'll be at least 5".

    I don't think the size will be larger than 5.3 in. 5.5 in is very near to 6-in. (1520).

    That's crossed my mind as well... 5.5" and 6" are a little too close in dimensions. It leaves too big of a gap between their biggest, and next biggest display sizes. I think 5.2", MAX 5.3" is the best we can hope for.

    Damn, I'm suddenly replying to every post in this thread. Can you tell I'm excited?

    C'mon Hump Day!

    I guess it would have a 5" screen.
    928 , 920, 925 = 4.5"
    Icon, 930, Monarch(?) = 5"

    I know, specs are great but I played with one last week and it was just too big to bring always with me :(
    The 1520 would gave sold a lot better if it was smaller than 6". I played with it and can deal with the size but I can understand it being too big for others

    Considering the credibility of those 2 sources, I would say they have no idea what they are talking about and they are just working for having more people on their website/twitter, as they always do.

    Having used an Icon for over a month now, I have no issue believing that the 930 has the exact same specs as the Icon except maybe with a Micro sd & a none OLED display.

    Possibly, so then would you say the NokiaPowerUser claim that the 930 won't be revealed at build is b.s. too? I'd like to believe so, but my brain tells me there's a reason there have been 0 leaks for it :-/

    I'm in the same boat! I find it weird but i can't say that it is B.S. Or not. All eyes on Twitter today to see if Daniel Rubino, Tom Warren or EVLeaks say something about the 930. If the phone isn't coming on Wednesday they will probably tweet about it today, because the last news they gave us was that the phone should be coming.

    EDIT: I'm way too excited about this (beyond healthy levels :P )

    Hey Indi,

    Any thoughts on whether the 930 would work on Verizon ? Will it have the Verizon bands ? If it has a MicroSD slot I might bite the bullet and replace my 928.

    Not sure what's so hard about believing that the Icon/930 are variants of each other. Icon packs a relatively modern chipset, full HD screen, and a nice camera. I don't see the 930 being all that different. At this point, anything less than 5 inches is going to be a joke in the face of competition from quite literally every other company out there. Hell, even Apple is caving to the bigger screen demand. A Snapdragon 801 would be a nice addition in the face of no expandable storage, and apparently it should help with picture taking.

    Honestly... at this point we might be focusing too much on the hardware of the phone. Comparing WP8 hardware to Android will always be a losing proposition. There will always be some Android phone out there with more RAM, more pixels, and more power. I'm hoping the 930 will continue to blaze its own path in terms of styling and features.

    I guess it would depend on one's definition of "variant", but I think the phones could be quite similar without necessarily being variants of one another, especially if it the 930 looks a lot different. There's no doubt they'll be similarly spec'd, as they're both flagships announced not too far apart from one another, but I can definitely see the 930 being more of a next iteration of sorts than a variant.

    It's highly unlikely that the 930 would be compatible with Verizon. It won't have Verizon bands. It'll likely follow in the footsteps of the 920, 1020, and 1520 - works on AT&T & T-Mobile. There are global variants available. But the 930 model itself won't be usable on the Verizon network - that's what the Icon is for.

    Nokia has always pushed windows phone's limits...
    -When windows phone added 1280 x 720 and 1280 x 768 resolutions, Nokia used them for flagship 920
    -when wp brought the choice to set default camera app, nokia brought the nokia camera app
    -when they added support for 3rd tile, 1080p and snapdragon 800s, then came the 1520 and the icon

    what i mean is ...Nokia can and probably will use the full power of windows phone 8.1 with the 930

    I disagree. One of the reasons why I bought the 1520 over the 1020 is the size. There's something with this big screen and a lot of people who see my phone seems to want a 1520. :) It is Nokia's and Microsoft's (for WP) marketing moves and strategies that suck and lead to poor selling of their flagship phones. You can buy the 1320, 925, 820 and even the budget phones 520 and 625 WITH CONTRACT on our country, but not the 1520 nor the 1020!

    ...with more color options and WP8.1. Hopefully it doesn't get raped/altered/watered down when it comes to AT&T. The 1520 was a disappointment when they slashed the memory in half and took out the built-in Qi wireless charging.

    It's not coming to AT&T (or any U.S. carrier besides the Icon already on Verizon) according to Nokia.

    Not sure why people are so sure it'll be a 4.5" display. For every rumor stating that, there are others saying it'll be 5". Even one site reporting 5.2".
    he said it was a 5" display.
