Microsoft's Lumia 830 and Lumia 735 are coming "soon" to the US
Microsoft yesterday announced the Lumia 830 as an “affordable flagship” handset, and the thinnest Lumia ever. Alongside it, the Lumia 730 / 735 was also unveiled, being presented as “the ultimate selfie and Skype phone.” While Microsoft didn’t provide exact release dates for the new Lumias - which will be the first to ship with Windows Phone 8.1 Denim - it said that they’d be available around the world later this month. In case you’re wondering if the handsets will be launched in the US, the answer is: definitely yes.

The Lumia 830 and Lumia 735 are now listed over at the official Nokia US website, both with a “coming soon” tag attached. Unlocked, the Lumia 830 may cost around $330, while the 735 should be priced at less than $250 (these estimations are based on the smartphone’s prices announced for Europe).

Rumors have it that the Lumia 830 will be released via AT&T, Verizon and Sprint, while the cheaper Lumia 735 could arrive at AT&T and Verizon. Until we get new details on this, to learn more about the features of the new Windows Phone 8.1 handsets, you may want to check out our Lumia 830 hands-on here, and our Lumia 730 hands-on here (the 730 is the dual-SIM, non-LTE variant of the Lumia 735).
