The Lumia 830 is the “affordable flagship” from Microsoft Devices. There’s a 5-inch 720p screen, a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 2200mAh battery. Of course the 830 also comes with Nokia’s collection of apps like Here Maps and MixRadio as well.
It also features a 10-megapixel camera which has been overhauled with reduced time to first shot and a dynamic flash feature that lets you simulate a fired flash in editing.
The design is similar to the Lumia 930, except the back plate is removable so you can customise the colour however you like. You get a choice between black, white, green and orange. Those plates also support wireless charging by default, with a new glowing charging pillow to be made available too.
It packs in 700MHz band support for all the new telco 4G networks about to be made live, and ships with Windows Phone 8.1.
Compared to the Lumia 930, you miss out on a 1080p screen and a 20-megapixel camera when you pick up the Lumia 830, as well as a faster processor and more RAM.
So what’s this latest slab of Lumia going to set you back? Well, Microsoft has priced it at $579 outright, and will also offer it on plans in partnership with Telstra and Optus Business from “early November”.
