Like the Lumia Icon, the Lumia 930 will not have Glance support after all

imageGiven that the Nokia Lumia Icon and the Nokia Lumia 930 are virtually the same handset, we were concerned that the later device will also lack Glance screen functionality, like the Icon does.

It unfortunately appears that will be the case, as WPCentral reports.

In their conversation with Nokia they discovered the 1080P AMOLED screen in both handsets lacks the right kind of display memory, making the feature impossible to implement.

The Glance feature does set current Windows Phone 8 handsets apart from your run of the mill smartphone, and never fails to impress other smartphone users, so its absence will certainly be missed. Hopefully this is one feature Nokia will be able to figure out in the end.
