Nokia Lumia 830 Gold Edition to hit China on January 8th?
According to a report published on Sunday, Microsoft is planning on offering a special Gold Edition of the Nokia Lumia 830 in China. The launch is expected to take place on January 8th. This is going to be a limited edition with a gold leather back. While a promotional image for the phone doesn't exactly mention which model will get the Goldmember treatment, an image of the Lumia 830 in gold popped up on a Chinese social media site. Look closely at the back of the phone, and you can read the words "Limited Edition."

To refresh your memory, the Nokia Lumia 830 has a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280. A quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU powers the device with the Adreno 305 GPU handling graphics. 1GB of RAM is on board, along with 16GB of native storage. Those requiring additional memory can turn to the 128GB microSD slot. The 10MP rear camera offers OIS, and the front-facing .9MP snapper takes care of self portraits. A 2200mAh battery keeps the lights on.

While we know the launch date for the limited edition, we haven't seen any advance word on price. Since the Gold Edition Nokia Lumia 830 is expected to be released in just four days, we should hear some word about pricing soon.
