More specifics about the upcoming Nokia Lumia 730 (Superman) crop up
The Lumia 730 has been on our radar for about a month now, and details have been slowly creeping in. Some new ones have been made available through various sources, including the FCC and what is suggested to be its Chinese equivalent.

According to Baidu -- China's most popular search engine -- the Lumia 730 will have dimensions of 134.7 x 68.5 mm (5.3 x 2.69 in), and have support for 4G LTE, Qi Wireless charging, microSD card expansion, and work with Nano SIMs.

Judging from the FCC certificate of one of the device's models (RM-1038), the 730 will also boast NFC support, and will be compatible with LTE networks operating on band 7. In other words, it won't work in the States, as none of the big four (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile) make use of that specific band. That said, we wouldn't take this as a conclusive sign that the 730 will skip on US availability altogether just yet.

The rest from the specs rumored so far include a 4.7-inch (720 x 1280 resolution) display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 6.7MP rear camera (5MP one at the front), and 8GB of internal storage. The price of the handset is said to be $240 off-contract, and we currently expect it to be released during Microsoft's event at IFA 2014.

The green looks kind of cheap while the orange looks much nicer!

Wonder if it is going to the U.S. And does Verizon get an exclusive on the WP too?

Nano sim? Does every manufacturer must follow Apple's stupid way? I'm glad that Sony, Samsung, LG, Motorola, Lenovo, Huawei, BlackBerry and some others are still using micro sim, nano sim is just stupid.

How is a smaller SIM card "stupid"? Do you have some attachment to larger SIM cards? Do you feel the need to have a larger tray and card take up space inside your phone? It's a SIM card, not a battery. The less of it there is, the better.

the global judges for sim cards approved apple's nano sim concept.

but rejected nokia and other allied companies' nano sim concept.

their concept was better. it is like a microSD shaped sim card where it can be pushed to insert/eject like a microSD method.

If they price it right, this will likely be a decent daily driver for many.
