Nokia has unveiled the Lumia 930, its new flagship Windows Phone handset.

The 5-inch, 1920x1080 pixels smartphone has a 20-megapixel camera and a new "premium" design which incorporates metal styling with richly coloured "pillow-like" back panels.

The device, which runs Windows Phone 8.1, was revealed at Microsoft's Build 2014 conference.

Nokia and Microsoft's Stephen Elop said that the phone "integrates the best" of both companies into one device.

The Lumia 930 also features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 - a step below the 801 seen in the HTC One and Galaxy S5 - wireless charging and hardware optical image stabilisation.

Nokia said its new screen has a 180-degree viewing angle, and is optimised for viewing outdoors. It also has integrated Dolby Surround Sound, and 32 GB of internal storage.

A range of new software features are also included, such as 'Living Images' (a photo and video remixer) and a new version of picture editor Creative Studio.
