Nokia Lumia 830 poses naked one more time, just a few hours before its announcement
We've already seen plenty of pics and renders of the upcoming Lumia 830 upper-midranger, including ones with its back panel off, but hey – the more the merrier! Chinese website WPDang has received leaked pictures of a Lumia 830 in white, which show the phone from a few angles, including a picture with its back off.

We've already seen the back panel of this device leaked enough times to be certain that the lens module will be a large circle, reminiscent of Lumia 1020's design language, and suggesting an emphasis on camera performance. This leakster reports that it would be a 10 MP “PureView” snapper.

One of the pictures has the Phone Info opened on-screen, which confirms the 720 x 1280 resolution. Screen size is yet unknown, although, keeping in mind where the device sits in the Lumia line, it is safe to say that the display will be between 4.5” and 5”, possibly landing in the middle, at 4.7”.

Furthermore, the phone info shot reveals the SoC to be a “8926”. That's the number for the Snapdragon 400 line from Qualcomm. We are unsure what to make of this choice by Microsoft, seeing as the phone is supposed to be only a step down from the Lumia 930 – packing such a low-tier processor (compared to the Snapdragon 800 in the flagship) makes little sense, not to mention it would leave a lot of potential buyers disappointed. It could either be an older concept device, or Microsoft could really be cutting corners, looking to deliver an affordable Lumia, with a larger display and higher PPI than the 630.

The leakster also confirms microSD card slot and wireless charging to be present.

Well, IFA is literally just around the corner, so we will soon know what's true and what's not.

I really love the design, aswell as the L930, represents Sony sharp angle style.

Agreed but it builds on a not-so-popular Microsoft platform and cost higher than the most popular one. L1320 vs galaxy grand 2 is great example. I love the design but hope 830 packs at least 20mp
