Lumia 830 is official - an affordable high-end Windows Phone with a 10MP OIS PureView camera

Lumia 830 is official - an affordable high-end Windows Phone with a 10MP OIS PureView camera
IFA 2014 witnessed the first Lumia device to be unveiled entirely under the Microsoft banner - meet the Lumia 830. The successor to the Lumia 820 is another colorful Windows Phone with signature characteristics like a Lumia 1020-like 10MP PureView rear camera with OIS, a removable back cover, and hardware capacitive buttons. Designed as an affordable high-end device, the Lumia 830 houses a 5-inch 720p panel, and it's powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU. It runs on Windows Phone 8.1 with the Lumia Denim update. The phone will cost 330 EUR unlocked, with the equivalent US price probably being $330. It will be available in green, white, black, and orange.

The Lumia Denim update makes Cortana easier to use. It introduces a "Hey, Cortana" phrase that launches Cortana for filing reminders and other actions. Denim also brings geofencing powers to Cortana, too, which can recognize geographic areas for assisting in reminders and tasks. Denim also improves the camera application. The start-up process is faster, the camera is quicker to capture individual shots and adds a quick-capture mode that records 4K video and 8.7-megapixel images. The software can extract individual shots from the video to make for better images.

Lumia Denim will arrive first on the Lumia 930, 1520, and Icon, with others to follow in the fourth quarter. The separate camera app will also be made available during the fourth quarter, exclusive the 930, 1520, and Icon.

I will get one if it really costs USD330 in Cambodia but too bad, 925 still cost USD365 now so i don't think the new 830 will be cheaper :(

I like how the conference is colourful. Nintendo is still the best one to make conferences and events.

Nyah.....Nexus 5 still rules in that price bracket. The only leg up L820 has is the OIS camera rest

That runs a whole different OS.
Btw what chipset is this one using?

15. tech2 (Posts: 2443; Member since: 26 Oct 2012)


Yup a whole different OS is again an advantage in Nexus's favour.

It just says Quad-core Snapdragon for now.

That's your opinion, many would beg to differ. And the 830 has a Snapdragon 400 chipset inside it.

It isn't an opinion, it's a fact. This has a 5 inch 720p screen, while the Nexus has a 1080p one. This has a Moto G grade Snapdragon 400 and the Nexus 5 has an immensely more powerful Snapdragon 800, this has 1GB of RAM and the Nexus has 2GB. All in all the Nexus has specs more similiar to a high end phone and the 830 like a mid range.

I think this guy doesn't even know that this is an affordable high end phone and the amazing picture quality of the PureView camera. Pathetic.

Megapixels don't tell the whole story, don't judge so early.

because nokia cant damage their pureview brand. lumia 820 has 8mp cam but nokia didnt call it pureview because it was not pureview,

32. elitewolverine (Posts: 2068; Member since: 28 Oct 2013)


Well the picture quality on my 925 has only been passed by new flagships and newer lumia's (1020/930/1520), it is no slouch by any means. The manual controls give it great flexibility and against the s4 and others, it takes the cake imo that is. So for this to be an updated 10mp, I don't see why not, compared to my 8.7mp that still runs great today.

It's a PureView camera module. Nobody should expect anything less than amazing, even if its 10 MP.

Everything about this phone is nice, except for the CPU... Snapdragon 400? Way way far from being flagship. Even for that price we can buy ex-flagships with better specs. Next please...

a Galaxy S5 mini with higher specs is more expensive, get real.

22. Chuck007 (Posts: 277; Member since: 02 Mar 2014)


Either way I kinda hope they went wit hat least a S615... I would've been willing to spend at least USD150 more for this.

Is S5 mini ex-flagship? Can you read?

49. microsoftnokiawin (Posts: 1038; Member since: 30 Mar 2012)


who is saying it's a snapdragon 400 i don't remeber hearing in the conference and phonearena's spec sheet isn't accurate atm

and the 830 isn't a flagship it's an affordable flagship

EDIT: i stand corrected about the s400 the rest is true though

26. hurrycanger (Posts: 1289; Member since: 01 Dec 2013)


I think it's a Sd400 on the Lumia 735 because the guys said 1.2ghz quad-core when he talked about the 735.
Not sure about the 830. It is a "flagship," so why not tell what chip it is?

Snapdragon 400 1.2ghz good enough to run windows and most of the apps in the os smoothly.

posted on 04 Sep 2014, 04:03

33. hurrycanger (Posts: 1289; Member since: 01 Dec 2013)


That's an excuse. Similar to the 512mb ram excuse for the 630/635.
I think it will be fine to be on the Lumia 730/735. But for the 830... that Snapdragon 400 1.2ghz is just not good enough. No excuse. That thing costs 330 euros before tax, not 230 euros.

I still keep some hope that the Lumia 830 doesn't really have the Snap400 though. lol.

Phonearena's own Lumia 830 page listed it as Snapdragon 400 with 1GB RAM.

Many other sites mention the same specs. Like this for example:

52. muhsen (Posts: 267; Member since: 07 Jun 2012)


well, if S5 mini and One mini 2 (where they both are much expensive) can get way with it with android, then the L830 can come out very clean with this.

This is nothing more than mid range. The ZTE Nubia Z7 Mini and Xiaomi Mi3 sell for 2/3 of the price but have 2x better specs.
