Lumia 730 will reportedly feature a Snapdragon 400 processor and 5MP front-facing camera

It seems though the world has gone crazy for selfies — even celebrities aren’t immune, as we’ve witnessed over the past 24 hours — and smartphone manufacturers are doing their best to appease customers.
In early July, Sony introduced its mid-range Xperia C3 smartphones, which it proclaimed to be “the world’s best selfie smartphone” thanks to its 5MP “PROselfie” front-facing camera (complete with its own soft LED flash). Chinese OEM Huawei has even gone so far as to trademark the term “groufie” for taking panoramic group shots with a front-facing camera.
Microsoft will unveil its take on the selfie smartphone, the Lumia 730, this week at IFA 2014 in Berlin, Germany. The company today released a new teaser for the Lumia 530, which puts the emphasis on the smartphone’s front-facing camera.

The Lumia 730’s selfie camera is expected to feature a 5MP sensor like the Xperia C3, but it will reportedly not feature that smartphone’s forward-facing LED flash. According to WP Central, the Lumia 730 will also bring with it a 6.1MP rear camera, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, microSD slot, 2000 mAh battery, and dual-SIM capabilities. There have been conflicting reports on the resolution of the Lumia 730’s 4.7” display, with both 720p and 854x480 resolutions being cited.

A separate model, the Lumia 735, will lack dual-SIMs, but will include LTE connectivity.
We’ll have full coverage of the Lumia 730/735 announcement later this week and its launch partner, the Lumia 830.
