Lumia 830

Microsoft has announced a new addition to the Lumia family, known as the Lumia 830. This device is the first “mid-ranger” from the company with Windows Phone 8.1 on-board, and has been touted by Nokia as the first “affordable” flagship.

The device looks an awful lot like the Lumia 930, which has a lovely device. The Lumia 830 is very thin (8.5mm), and comes with a 10MP PureView camera which takes really cool photos, better than the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy.

The Lumia 830 also includes built-in wireless charging, along with the ability to change the back cover. It has a 2200mAh battery, which brings hours upon hours of battery for your device.

Inside the device features a Quad-Core snapdragon processor and weighs in at 150 grams. The device is priced at around 330 euros and will start shipping globally later this month.
