Nokia Lumia 735 might not be launched in the US after all (Microsoft no longer lists it on its website)
Announced in September alongside the Lumia 730 and Lumia 830, the Nokia Lumia 735 was supposed to be released in the US at some point, via Verizon and Sprint. Microsoft itself had listed the handset as “coming soon” on its official US website. However, now the Lumia 735 is nowhere to be found on the website - which might mean it won’t be available Stateside after all (at least not following an official launch).
This may have something to do with the fact that Microsoft ditched the Nokia brand from the name of its smartphones (starting with the Microsoft Lumia 535). Then again, the Redmond giant had no problems releasing the Nokia Lumia 830. Whatever the case is, right now it looks like Microsoft has no plans of bringing the Lumia 735 to the US.
The 735 is almost identical to the Nokia Lumia 730, but it doesn’t have dual SIM capabilities, though it makes up for that with LTE connectivity. Advertised as a selfie phone, the Lumia 735 features a 5 MP front-facing camera, and a 6.7 MP rear camera. It obviously runs Windows Phone 8.1, further offering a 4.7-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable internal memory.
Will anyone be disappointed if the Lumia 735 does indeed elude the US?
