When it comes to Windows Phone news, as well as news of the latest Lumia smartphones from Nokia, there are two dates we’ve been keeping in mind: April 2, and April 19. The former is when Microsoft’s Build conference gets underway this year, and sometime during the event (which runs though April 4), we’re expecting Microsoft to make a big Windows Phone 8.1 announcement. The latter date is one we’ve heard rumored for a Nokia event, where it would presumably introduce its first native WP8.1 handsets. Now, however, it seems that those new Lumias may make their first public appearance a little earlier, with rumors claiming that a pair of handsets will debut at Build itself.

Supposedly, Nokia would introduce the Lumia 630 and Lumia 930 at Build. We assume that the mention of the 630 here also includes the 635, as we’re expecting only minor differences between the two. While the 630 sounds relatively middle-of-the-road, the 930 could be a real treat, and we’ve seen it attached to specs like a 4.5-inch 1080p screen.

Beyond these two, we also hear once again about the device codenamed Goldfinger. While that name popped up last year, we haven’t talked about it in a long time – and last we heard it sounded pretty darn advanced, supporting in-air gesture control. While Goldfinger wouldn’t join the 630 and 930 next month, it’s reportedly still in the works, though its launch timeframe may have been pushed back.
