Forthcoming Lumia 830 to be part of AT&T’s line-up
posted by Maxwell R. / Aug 02, 2014, 5:17 PM
The announcement of the Lumia 830 would be the third mid-to-lower tier Windows Phone unveiled this year, topping a trio that includes the Lumia 530 and Lumia 635.
Based on the images we have seen so far, the Lumia 830 (assuming that is the name that will be used) “by Microsoft” has a similar form factor to Verizon’s Lumia Icon, and the globally available Lumia 930. The most noticeable visual difference is the camera assembly whose design language borrows from the Nokia Lumia 1020.
Unlike its presumed predecessor, this device does not appear to have a removable backplate. Final specifications are not yet known, but the camera appears to be a 13-megapixel unit with ZEISS optics. Underneath, seeing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU would make sense since anything more powerful would upstage the current line of flagships.
Screen size and resolution are also something that is not known, but again, the images suggest a 5-inch screen or thereabouts. Given that the headliners are sporting full HD 1080p displays, a 720p panel on the Lumia 830 would contribute to a lower cost, and it would still be a significant step up from the 480x800 screen on the Lumia 820.
With the likelihood that AT&T will maintain a close relationship with Lumia devices, adding the 830 still leaves room for a top shelf offering which is going to be needed by the holidays, and is said to be in the works.

- Battery 2200 mAh(14.8h 3G talk time)

A 5" device that "borrows" camera design from the L1020? Crap, without a high end screen, this might be just a tad off from what I call a perfect device, but it is checking off a lot of boxes on my wish list so far.

1440 screens are overrated, 1080p is already sharp enough, i mean if you look at reviews and pics of the LG G3 screen, the only thing thats really different compared to its 1080p counterparts is that it has more vibrant colours and its brighter (and that all comes down to software and hardware tweaks that can be made without a jump to 1440) < 1440 also means a more expensive device too (and for no good reason either)

Yeah.... I think so too. 1080p is more than enough. the additional detail is become unnoticeable. and the impact to the battery life is some thing we don't desire. I like to play games and browsing in the phone when I'm traveling. and depending on the signal, it will drain my phone in about two hours from full charge. talking about wall hugger.

Nokia black Amoled display with 530ppi, and 3300mah, L1030, DDR4 Ram, with 3gb Ram, S805 or S810 . Along with Xenon, Carl-zeiss optics. Masterpiece, create of art. From my Note2 to upgrading to Note3, I can see a big difference. In clarity and depth of detail. A killer device. Who cares if it's expensive. Their are loads of people who would buy, if it had those specs. On WP8.1. Including me.

Superman is a 620 successor though with Tesla being a 720 successor. Asha → 530 520 → 630 620 → Superman ("730") 720 → Tesla ("830") They've simple moved the numbers one up on the successors in order to accomodate the super-low-range Lumia that replaced the Asha. Check the specifications and price-points and they correspond nicely.

Well, with advances in technology, and increased consumer expectations, you can pretty say the same thing for all lines of devices from every manufacturer...

Phonearena lumia 8xx series is not low to mid range, it's mid to high end.

Nokia phones have only good looks but inside nothing than boring tiles and a rigid and ridiculous OS

I'm not sure I like that large flat circle. I'll reserve judgement until I see it in person though. I'd like to see the 8xx series with s800 though. That would mean that they are moving to the 801 or 805 processors for their high end
