Nokia Lumia 830 coming to AT&T; 10MP rear camera with OIS and Cortana

Nokia Lumia 830 coming to AT&T; 10MP rear camera with OIS and Cortana
After rumors last month that it was coming to AT&T, the carrier announced on Tuesday that it will be offering the Nokia Lumia 830 to its customers. Pricing and availability will be announced by the carrier at a later date. The Lumia 830 will come out of the box with Windows Phone 8.1 pre-installed, which means that Cortana will be available immediately to AT&T subscribers buying the phone.

With a 5 inch screen offering resolution of 720 x 1280, the resulting pixel density works out to 294ppi. Under the hood is a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU with the Adreno 305 GPU crunching graphics. 1GB of RAM is on board with 16GB of native storage. A 128GB capacity microSD slot is available for those requiring more storage. The 10MP rear camera has an aperture of f/2.2, allowing for good quality pictures even under low-light conditions. And OIS is used on the rear snapper to keep photos and videos steady. The .9MP front facing camera will take selfies and handle video calling. A 2200mAh battery powers the phone.
Depending on where AT&T prices the device, the Nokia Lumia 830 could be a great value for those who often employ the rear camera on their phone. Verizon and T-Mobile are also expected to offer this model in the states.

It looks like the 925. I wonder if they are going to change it like the 820 and the 822 went to Verizon and the 810, my phone went to t-mo. Too bad this phone isn't as good as the m8 with WP. I would have had a choice

This phone is targeted from a different segment of consumers, highend looks and performance at a midrange pricepoint. it does share a resemblance to the 925, just a better looking camera hardware.

The thing is, I was expecting this to have a snapdragon 800 and two gigs of ram. This has a 400 and only a gig. The rumors said affordable high end, so I thought in terms of specs, not looks. Don't care that much about looks unless it makes the phone uncomfortable to hold. Which the 925 is with its sharp corners

Hold it with you're pinky under the frame, I actually like it and prefer it. Awkward at first but not anymore. Now other phones feel awkward. 800snap would have been nice but it is all in all a 925 upgraded, better cam, processor, ram (faster usually), 8.1 from ground up, 4k, better gpu. If anything this is a good replacement for it since they stopped selling the 925. New or refurb.

And this is the exact reason why I'm switching to Android. Availability and high end offerings. Both are missing across the board. You have to be an ATT or Verizon customer to reap the benefits. This phone is gorgeous but it is not a flagship and once again Microsoft os dragging their feet about announcing availability and giving it to more carriers. I'm a T-Mobile customer and I will not switch carriers for a phone especially not a midrange one. I will be getting the Sony Xperia Z 3 as soon as it is available. Tired of the waiting game. Can't to try something new with Android.

I don't see how you can complain about this not being a flagship when they aren't intending it to be one. The 930 is the current flagship, and you can blame Verizon for that not being available in the US, not Microsoft.

I don't care about who to blame. And I know the 830 is not intended to be a flagship. The bigger point is where is Microsoft's flagship? Sure the HTC One for Windows is really nice but I was looking for a Microsoft flagship using Nokia's hardware. All I know is every nice phone I owned came from ATT and had to be unlocked(Samsung Focus, HTC Titan, Lumia 920 and my current Lumia 1020). What does that tell me? If I'm going to stay with T-Mobile(which I am) and want a true flagship device save for the HTC one for Windows its not going to happen. But look the Samsung Galaxy 5, iPhone 6(will be), LG G3, HTC One(Android), and Sony Xperia Z3(will be my next phone) are readily available. But I can get the Lumia 521, 630 or whatever low budget device they decide to come up with? I'm done blaming whoever. This is a terrible strategy to sell phones. Isolate each and every flagship and even the midrange ones so potential consumers have to hop from carrier to carrier to get it. And don't let me get started on the decisions they make to include(Lumia 1520) or not include(Lumia Icon/930 and every other high end flagship) storage expansion on their phones. I'm just baffled and really am a fan of Windows Phone as I fell in love and supported the OS since Windows Phone 7. I care and that's why I can write at length responses like this. I love the OS but I'm no fool and I do not see much promise for me as a T-Mobile first customer especially as Microsoft continues to ignore the fact that their best phones need to be available on more than one carrier and not release essentially the same phone(Lumia 920,928,925) at different times on three different carriers with three different designs and specs. I won't do it.

Forgive me for the rant. I'm tired of seeing Windows Phone not succeed as I feel it should especially when I know the platform has a lot to offer. I do plan to go back to Windows Phone when things become better(more availability and more apps[not a big issue for me]). I really wanted a 1020 successor as well. Microsoft is just so slow and I won't continue to support them while they get their stuff together all the while not providing their best hardware to loyal and willing supporters across more than one or two carriers.

I can`t agree with you more. the entire carrier crap needs to stop. HTC has already done away with it on WP. the m8 with WP, my next phone, is on most of the carriers. Why can`t MS do the same. it should not be that hard. I am also sick and tired of the answer being "well get so and so phone". NO. I want the phone I want. not one I will hate for the next two years. and like you mentioned, sd slots on the phones. why do I need a six inch or low end device to get such a standard feature. that is one of the reasons I held onto my 810 so long. it is so stupid they can`t add such a feature. HTC can make a metal unibody design with sd and nokia can`t? why not? and like i mentioned, i have the 810. another carrier exclusive device that gets abandoned after 4 months. why couldn`t they have gotten the 820 like att and the rest of the world. I am also on t-mo, and they are the worst when it comes to WP. one of the guys said nokia phones only work with nokia chargers. they are just ignorant all around. they also denied my 810 updates after amber. had to get onto the dev program, and that has messed up my phone big time

They are taking to long as always to release. Look at Motorola and Apple, they announced phones and they are available within 10 days.
