AT&T's Nokia Lumia 830 comes with two rear covers, will support Qi and PMA wireless charging
A flyer available from an AT&T Store reveals that the upcoming Nokia Lumia 830 will come with a pair of rear covers out of the box. The Lumia 830 features a black rear cover, with an additional cover in green. This will allow you to customize your Windows Phone 8.1 powered handset. Both back covers will support wireless charging.

Speaking of wireless charging, according to a specs sheet for the phone, it turns out that the Nokia Lumia 830 will support both Qi and PMA wireless charging standards. The Nokia Lumia 830 will come with a 5 inch glass with a resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a pixel density of 294ppi. A quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU is under the hood with the Adreno 305 GPU handling graphics. 1GB of RAM is on board and 16GB of native storage is included.

A 10MP camera adorns the rear of the phone, and with an f/2.2 aperture, this unit should be able to take decent pictures in low light conditions. The front facing camera weighs in at .9MP, and the 2200mAh battery keeps the lights on. The phone is expected to launch on November 7th with a possible price of less than $100 on contract.

I don't need to see a name to love a phone. This phone is pretty nice for a midranger and I love that they give you two backs. I'm not interested in these midrange phones but nice none the less. It's going to take more from Microsoft for me to jump to Windows phone but I like the direction they are heading

This is probably the only midphone i would consider. Once you have a note in the android line really hard to go elsewhere for android, like low-mid range.

I am generally impressed by the device supporting both wireless standards. Some of the L920 owners who have held onto their 2-year old device just because they love their wireless charging might be more tempted knowing they could still use their Qi chargers. Truly, only the really low end processor scares me about this phone. Everything else is truly respectable for a mid-range offering.

It is a low end processor for what is available today, but reviews of the device seem to be really positive. I think it's important to point out that some of the reviewers who have been most impressed are coming from older devices like the 920 and even 1020, but they do convey how impressed with they are with the snappiness and speed of the device (also running 8.1 Denim).

This is true, but the low end processor can do 4k recording and the processor in the tests were above the 920 but below the 920 in graphics. So it was a trade off, but in reality, it was the cpu side that helps it do things the 920 won't get.

I bet Nokia's development team is busy with some awesome tool behind the scenes to blow away people's minds on their return in 2016 or so...Oh and how I wish they up their game on the OS coz Nokia is known to have a whacky OS Note: I ain't hating here hey, actually one of Nokia's biggest fans!! So yeah no trashy comments towards me PLEASE!

for me, they have to go android first as their bread and butter, before they go their home brewed OS, it'll be impossible for them to rise on a ground zero. just copy samsung's strategy, they get tons of money on their android devices, and qualcom powered, but at the same time, they where developing their own SoC and their own OS (tizen) then God knows when will people embrace their own os, as for now, android is dominating as goes for a saying "if you can't beat 'em, join them"

I wouldnt bet on a 2016 release. They literally just released the phone division, own no factories now (the 2 they do that MS did soak up are being sold and employees let go). The only thing left is the networking side. Considering they are investing heavily into 5G and just started to turn a profit. I am probably wrong and good ole Nokia will pull something out (like tablet maybe?) in 2016, but i dont see a phone until late 2017 or 2018
