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?

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,

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.

That's because Nokia has credibility when it comes to cameras.
