We’ve heard about the Lumia 730, Nokia’s selfie-centric handset, but those of you who were disappointed by the handset’s fairly limited (rumoured) specs are in luck, because the Lumia 830 is expected to be so much better.
The phone itself has been teased by Microsoft within the company’s IFA invite, through the use of the phrase “face-time” and the use of a camera lens in place of an “o” in the word more. If it hadn’t been for those two details the invite would have been fairly bland and boring.
Maybe Microsoft is keeping its lips sealed but that hasn’t stop the phone’s specifications supposedly leaking online. According to TK Tech News, the phone will have a 20.1MP camera, a 4.5-inch 720p display, SD card support, and the latest version of Windows Phone 8.1.
It’s not confirmed and we can’t take any of this as fact, but it’s nice to see that even after a string of budget announcements over the past couple of months Microsoft is still looking for the high-end smartphone market. [Phones Review]
