Nokia Lumia 730 (Superman) specs allegedly revealed

Nokia Lumia 730 (Superman) specs allegedly revealed
Yesterday, we saw a couple of photos that reportedly showed the unannounced Nokia Lumia 730 (codenamed Superman). According to rumors, Stephen Elop internally presented the 730 not long ago as a “selfie phone” - that’s because the handset seemingly has a 5 MP front-facing camera.

Today, WP Central revealed a list of preliminary specs for the Lumia 730. Besides the 5 MP camera that's found on the front, the handset allegedly has a 6.1 MP rear camera with LED flash. The rest of the smartphone’s features should include dual SIM capabilities, a quad-core processor of unknown speed, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, and microSD card support. It’s said that the display of the Lumia 730 is a 4.7-inch one with a resolution of either 480 x 854 pixels, or 720 x 1280 pixels. The new device runs Windows Phone 8.1, apparently with a firmware version called Debian Red (as we can see in the image above).

Microsoft may launch the Lumia 730 in the coming months, and we’re expecting the device to be pretty affordable. The handset will be the successor to the well-received Nokia Lumia 720, which was released in early 2013.

They price this device right and promote properly it will continue to serve them well at the low midrange level. However MS sucks at promoting WP, its a great platform.

If I was marketing for Microsoft I would take advantage of the superman code name. You'll call this the lumia 730 aka Nokia superman, have limited edition 730s with the superman logo, superman ringtone, merchandise, even a superman game exclusive to WP and free or 730 users. So much opportunity yet Microsoft will never capitalize on it. :'(

Yeah, that would appeal to everyone... If they did that they just lost every potential customer except a few nerdy WP fans on PA, and that's not many.... ............... To tell the truth, it really doesn't matter what they call it.. It could have the coolest name ever, but if nobody ever hears about it then it will never matter.... Remember this, my friend.. WP's underlined issue is AWARENESS.. No, not apps, or features, or hardware, or names.. That hasn't been the case since WP7.5 because any idiot knows that even the lowly WP7.5 was more than enough smartphone for the AVERAGE consumer... Yes, WP's core issue is marketing, and that's because MS literally sux at it... If MS doesn't figure out how to build awareness, and excitement around every WP device they make, and the WP platform as a whole, then WP will continue on the slow, but steady, road to increased market share... But, slow isn't going to cut it... .......... Lets remember this.. A good salesman can sell ANYTHING to ANYONE!... SApple has figured this out, and does a great job of taking advantage of human's insecurities, fears, and lack of education... That's how you get customers, a lot of customers.... MS must learn to make consumers think they are making a bad choice by not getting a WP device,, make them feel stupid for not having the latest WP device... I give credit to SApple because they do a great job of taking advantage of the situation... MS is just too nice, too honest, to exact... That's their problem... They need to boast, and brag.. Say they were the first, and come right out and say this device is the best at everything, and you're a fool if you buy anything else, even if it's not... This is the truth!!!!

They can't just slap superman on it. Superman has copyrights you know. Though i remember Nokia having the rights to man of steel. On a side note, they probably will have a special edition of next year's flagship for batman v superman

But, when you look at the average consumer how many people do you think that will appeal to?.. I mean, step outside into the real world.. Go to the super market, look at each person, and ask yourself if each particular person would be interested in a Superman themed device... I'm sure you'll only find a select few if you honestly tell yourself who would, or would not like that kind of device..... ............ I'm not saying that it wouldn't be cool to have these niche devices, but we have to be for real when talking about increasing market share..

We've been talking about how deep MS's pockets are, as far as WP is concerned, for years... They're deep, but not infinitely deep, and at some point WP is gonna have to start holding it's own weight...

I'm not complaining about the on-screen key,it's the low-res screen

An alleged 720p isn't that bad for a midrange device, Don't you think?

Lumia 1520 right hear... That's THE best WP device so far... Anything better is going to have to offer as much as the 1520, and more... There's your baseline!

With a name like superman you'd figure the phone would be more powerfull.

It's a code name.

Even if it is, it still should have been given a more appropriate name. Like captain hindsight. For those of you who dont know, its a south park reference.

Iphones codename should be fingerbang. Cuz that is basically what they are doing. Overcharge you for mediocre specs. Well i dont know about you but i like to be taken out to dinner before i get screwed.
