Usher in the New Year with Lumia Gold

If you are a Windows Phone or Nokia fan, Microsoft has the Lumia 930 in Gold for you to usher in the Chinese New Year. It’s the same slick device with top-notch display and a slew of integrated apps, but enhanced with an auspicious touch. With the Chinese New Year season upon us, enter the Lumia 930 Gold and make a striking statement at your family gathering! You would also get a free Swensen’s Yusheng set.

The new gold Lumia 930 marks the high-end refresh of the model, with an anodized gold colour marrying sleekness and style. With a sharp crystal clear 5-inch Full HD OLED display, incredible imaging and video qualities from an advanced 20-megapixel PureView camera and seamless integration of Microsoft services, the Lumia 930 offers the best of the Windows Phone 8.1 experience, simultaneously supporting a wide range of third-party apps, such as Instagram, Facebook, and Spotify. It is a smartphone that carries high-end performance and digital functions together with the best of Lumia innovations, accentuated by a subtle gold that adds effortless class.

The phone would also likely be upgradable to Windows Phone 10 when it is released this year, which helps ensure the longevity of your mobile device.

Starting 21 February 2015, Saturday, the new gold Lumia 930 will be retailing in Singapore for SGD699 (no-contract price) at Singtel, M1 and Amobile with attractive data plans. Starhub is a notable exclusion. The Lumia 930 will be available in black or white, both with a premium gold finish.
