Nokia may unveil Lumia 630 and Lumia 930 devices after announcing April event
The Finnish firm is expected to announce some new Windows Phone 8.1 hardware, such as the Lumia 630 and Lumia 930.

The event was announced on the Nokia Conversations website, in a post titled as "If you BUILD it, they will come..." While Nokia is rumoured to announce its next set of handsets, Microsoft might concentrate on its Windows Phone 8.1 operating system too andit is highly likely that both the firms may team-up and release the new handsets running the next iteration of Windows Phone 8.1 OS at the Build Developer Conference event.

"What makes 2014 so special is the exciting Microsoft and Nokia partnership, and boy, have we got some treats lined up for you," added the announcement post.

Nokia is expected to unveil its anticipated Nokia Lumia 630 (thought to be codenamed Moneypenny) and Nokia Lumia 930 (thought to be codenamed Martini) handsets. Earlier this month, it was leaked that Nokia would reveal its 'Martini' handset on a 19th April 2014 event, alongside other devices such as Nokia Lumia 1820, Lumia 1525 and Lumia 1520 V. So far no information about the other devices has come to light.

Reports suggest the Lumia 630 will arrive in both single-SIM and dual-SIM variants (making it the first dual-SIM Windows Phone). It is further said to arrive without a rear camera flash, hinting it will fall in the budget segment.

No details have been reported about the Lumia 930 handset, except for the speculated Build conference launch. However thereis a long-rumoured Windows Phone device codenamed 'Goldfinger' has also been mentioned as possibly due to launch at the same event, as a high-end device with a 3D touch interface.

The chances of Microsoft releasing its Windows Phone 8.1 OS also seem bright as the firm has already rolled-out the 'confidential' SDK files to developers, which revealed a number of upcoming features via leaks. Windows Phone 8.1 is now expected to roll out to users sometime between July and August, with confirmation of RTM (Release To Manufacture)milestoneat the Build Conference 2014.
