Online retailers in India put up placeholders for Nokia Lumia 930, launch imminent?

The Nokia Lumia 930 which was launched in April is slowing making its way to various markets across the globe and its arrival in India could be just around the corner. The new flagship Windows Phone device has surfaced on various online retailers in the country, sans any availability details or price.

Currently, Flipkart, InfiBeam and HomeShop18 have the Nokia Lumia 930 listed on their websites. What’s more, the company’s country-specific page also shows the smartphone has coming soon. When the device was officially unveiled a couple of months back, India was listed as amongst the first wave of markets, so we expect the phone to arrive by the end of this month or in early August.

While there’s no specific price for India, Nokia did mention that the handset will sell for $599 sans taxes. So you can anticipate the phone to retail somewhere between Rs 45000 to Rs 50000 when it goes official. The phone is also scheduled to go on sale across Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and other locations in Asia.
