Microsoft to announce new Windows Phone handsets at IFA (Lumia 830 and Lumia 730?)
The invite further reads “Join us for more face time" - possibly a hint at the announcement of the Lumia 730 (codenamed Superman), which should be Microsoft’s first “selfie phone.” So we’re thinking that both the Lumia 830 and Lumia 730 could be unveiled on September 4.
As we told you earlier this week, the Lumia 730 could cost about $240 off-contract. Reportedly, the handset’s features include a 4.7-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, 5 MP front-facing camera, 6.7 MP rear camera, Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable internal memory. The Lumia 830 will be more expensive (although its exact price isn’t known), allegedly coming with a 13 MP rear camera, and a Snapdragon 800 processor. Obviously, both new Lumias should run Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box.
