The next wave of Lumia phones to be unveiled on September 4
New Nokia Lumia smartphones to be presented at IFA in Berlin
Microsoft has sent out invites to a launch event at IFA in Berlin, Germany on September 4. The invite says: “Ready for more? Join us for more face time”. We can also spot a phone camera lens instead of ‘o’ in the word ‘more’. The teaser hints at some camera-centric Windows Phones, with Lumia 730 & 830 being the main candidates.
The latest rumors about Nokia Lumia 730 say that we will have a 4.7-inch device with a 6.1MP rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel camera for selfies. The processor is likely to be a quad-core Snapdragon 600 with 1 GB of RAM. Lumia 730 is positioned as a mid-range Windows Phone running post-Cyan firmware internally codenamed Lumia Debian Red. Other possible specs include 8 GB storage, microSD slot, and two SIM slots.
Rumor has it that a variant of Nokia Lumia 830 could arrive at Verizon in the States with a 20.1 MP PureView camera and a 4.5-inch display. According to TK Tech News, Lumia 830 will have a design similar to Lumia 930, but with a slimmer body. Supposed photos of an unannounced phone, which are believed to be the 830, show a camera module similar to the camera lens spotted on the IFA 2014 press invite. Elop is reported to have presented an affordable high-end phone and a mid-range device at an internal meeting, and these phones could have been the Lumia 730 and 830.
