Nokia Lumia 830 starts shipping around the world, brings PureView to more people
Microsoft today confirmed that the Nokia Lumia 830 is launching around the world starting this week. The Lumia 830 is Microsoft’s “affordable flagship” - the cheapest handset ever to offer Nokia’s PureView imaging technology. The PureView camera of the 830 is a 10 MP one with Optical Image Stabilization, Zeiss optics, LED flash, and 1080p video recording.

Running Windows Phone 8.1 with the very latest Lumia Denim update, the 830 comes with Cortana, Microsoft Office, Action Center, Word Flow, and 15 GB of free OneDrive storage space. Other features include LTE connectivity, NFC, a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory. The new handset weighs 150 grams, measures 139.4 x 70.7 x 8.5 mm (this making it the thinnest Lumia yet), and includes a 2200 mAh battery.

The suggested retail price of the Nokia Lumia 830 is €330 (which hopefully means less than $400 in US dollars). Several color versions will be available, including white, black, green, and orange.  

Of course, not everyone will be able to buy the handset starting this week. For example, it looks like customers in the US will have to wait until next month to get their hands on the smartphone, as AT&T may not sell it before November 7. It's said that Verizon and T-Mobile are also getting ready to offer the Lumia 830 (this, however, hasn't been confirmed yet).

If you buy an international version most likely however it won't support LTE bands and you'll *only* get 4G

And by 4G he means HSPA+.

One can get this just for pureview camera and design...and with guaranteed update to W10 . this is really great. I just want to see proper camera samples. So far reports says that this works better than L920 with denim update running S400 SoC :)

It better be priced at around 330 to 350.

Pureview in name, mostly. There's no oversampling, so the Pureview-bit merely covers OIS. IMO, putting the moniker on this device is doing both the phone and the branding a disservice... If you want proper Pureview, go for the 930, 1020 or 1520. Or wait for the 1030 (crossing fingers)...! B-)

This is just an overpriced low end phone. I don't want to say this but Microsoft really know how to screw up good quality products that Nokia prroduced to this garbage they're coming out with. A tiny camera sensor with no pureview oversampling, It should have a least a large sensor with 20Mpx. Comes with a low end CPU... Probably the build quality has gone too. I really can't see Microsoft making their phones a success especially since they're getting rid of the Nokia brand very soon.

Naive would be polite, such a ill-informed comment show an opinion that lacks any foundation and also common sense Microsoft bought the Nokia brand as what a stepping stone? So for half the price,Apple-iPhone-6/phones/8855,8346 . In answer to comment #7 the Noku Lumia 830 is "Non Apple" it has both a removable battery and memory expansion The flagship phones you list are non user replaceable battery and no microSD

Nothing wrong with this phone! I'd buy this one over an Iphone 6 any day. My opinion guys.
