Nokia Outs its Thinnest and Lightest Lumia Yet, the Lumia 830

Lumia-830

Microsoft Devices today unveiled its latest Lumia 830 smartphone at IFA in Berlin, which, according to the company, is a flagship device with affordable price tag.

Lumia 830 carries forward the traditional Lumia design, packed with metal and polycarbonate to give the device a premium look. Lumia 830 will be available in bright colors including orange, bright green, white and black.

Newsiest Lumia phone measures just 8.5mm thin, that’s the thinnest for any Lumia smartphone. While it weighs 150 grams, which is again the lightest by Lumia standards till date.

Boosting a five-inch ClearBlack display and super-sensitive touch technology with Curved Gorilla 3.0 glass, Microsoft claims that Lumia 830 will offer greater readability in sunlight.

Under the covers, Lumia 830 is powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor, 1GB RAM,  16GB in-house memory that can be extended till 128GB via a microSD slot. Lumia 830 users will also get 15GB of free OneDrive cloud storage.

The Lumia 830, comes with a rear-facing 10MP PureView camera with ZEISS optics and the thinnest and lightest Optical Image Stabilization system Nokia has ever built. There is a minor 1MP front facing camera as well for selfies and skyping.

A mediocre 2200mAh removable battery will house on the back of Lumia 830.

Lumia 830 will come pre-loaded with the Microsoft’s latest Lumia Denim update, which brings Live Folders, Apps Corner, an updated Glance screen and more secure networking to Windows 8.1 Lumia devices.

The Lumia 830 is expected to be available in September around the world and is estimated to be priced at around US 440 dollars, which we believe is over priced considering the hardware.

      Still not thinner than iPhone 5

      • PCMaster

        Guess what? The iPhone doesn’t have a Pureview camera with OIS capability. And it has a smaller screen. And it also costs twice as much. You were saying?

        This goes for author as well. If you think this is overpriced, I’d love to hear what you think about the iPhone.

        • 6onthemove

          He was saying that its still not thinner than iPhone 5, I won’t mind paying for it if it has 4x of Lumia apps, no google maps! sigh!!!…did you notice that?

          • PCMaster

            > He was saying that its still not thinner
            than iPhone 5?

            Yeah I know. My point still stands.

            > I won’t mind paying for it if it has 5x of
            Lumia apps

            Do you really need 5000 iFart apps and 10000
            flashlight apps on your phone? There are 300k apps in the WP store. Believe me,
            you will never need half that many apps in your whole lifetime.

            > a far better OS

            Which is?

            > even i couldn’t print documents over wifi
            from its official built-in version of office

            Yeah you see, that’s the problem
            right there. It’s because *you* were doing it. I regularly print documents off
            my phone using the official HP app.

            >its software didn’t let me copy any files
            except multimedia

            Once again, you’re doing it wrong. It is the
            only OS with an official file manager allowing you to copy *any* file type.
            Also you can install apps natively on SD card, not just app data. Let’s see you
            do either of that on icrap.

            > i had to go online to sync my docs

            wow shocking, you had to go online on your
            smartphone.

            > i will never switch back to lumia

            good. you lack the brains to use one. stick to
            your low iqPhone.

            > guest what lumia don’t have google maps!
            sigh!!!…did you notice that?

            The only thing I noticed is
            you’re effing dumb! Google 7b8bedd5-4368-e011-81d2-78e7d1fa76f8 first link.

            And btw, it’s guess, not guest. Have a good day.

            • 6onthemove

              Good luck, you are so biased, ifart ? don’t you hand any better argument to defend that?, get your facts clear, i said many major apps. Even you forgot that i was talking about official google maps app which lets me save my places and and directions… HP print? i guess lumia is the only phone and HP is the only printer company in world from your eye…

              • panjgoori

                well the best selling point of this phone is its High end Pureview camera in a mid range device which iPhone lacks. Believe it or not but it gives better specs at better price that iPhone.

          • Afnan

            lol google maps …. who needs a google maps when you have offline mode navigation in your hand …. here maps are much accurate than google maps … :) atleast for me here in EU where there is no 3g coverage …. i can still use the nokia navigator

      Azeem Ullah Hassan, please note, Lumia 830 is neither lightest nor thinnest Lumia ever made. Please check the specs of Lumia 925 to get better answer.
