The smartphone has four omni-directional microphones and Rich Recording to capture real-to-life audio. It is also the world's first smartphone that can capture and playback high-quality audio in Dolby Surround Sound.
Underneath the five-inch Corning Gorilla Glass 3 display lays a Full HD (1080p) OLED screen with a viewing angle of almost 180 degrees.
The Lumia 930 contains a 2,420 mAh battery and built-in wireless charging (wireless charging pad sold separately). It is powered by a 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and
comes loaded with Microsoft Office Mobile and access to OneDrive.
In addition, some of the latest improvements to Windows Phone include: Action Centre for all of your notifications, Start screen backgrounds for more personalisation, and Cortana - Mirosoft's digital personal assistant.
Lumia 930 also comes equipped with the new SensorCore. This technology brings low-powered motion sensing to help you track your daily activities, such as distances walked and calories burned.
