Nokia has announced that the Lumia 930, its flagship Lumia series smartphone unveiled at the Build Developer Conference, running Microsoft's new Windows Phone mobile operating system will be available in the UK from the 17th of this month.

Contract price

Carrying a rich suite of applications and services, the Lumia 930 will be available on contract at £33 per month for a period of over 24 months. The contract price matches the listing recently spotted at Carphone Warehouse.

Although Carphone Warehouse is yet to confirm pre-orders, a display promoting the sales of the Lumia 930 at one of its local stores in the UK suggests the contract price for the Lumia 930 is £99 upfront and £28 per month. Besides, the SIM-free Lumia 930 will cost £479.95 at Carphone Warehouse, suggests the display.

Nokia has announced that the Lumia 930 will go on sale on 17 July at UK retailers such as Vodafone, EE, Phones 4u, O2, Carphone Warehouse, Tesco and Aamazon.

Apart from these, the Lumia 930 with a range of colour options including bright orange, bright green and black will be available for purchase from other UK online retailers. Phones 4u will exclusively stock the white variant of the Lumia 930.
