New phone looks sleek and thin
A user of China's Weibo microblogging site has
of an unreleased
Nokia Lumia Windows Phone
that's likely being prepped for release by Nokia Devices' owner, Microsoft Corp. (
It's well known that
China is where most high-end Lumia devices
are painstakingly assembled. Not surprisingly, it's also the source of many of the leaks we received during the wind up to device launches.
The new Lumia smartphone appears to have an aluminum frame and polycarbonate back to go along with its glass front.
The smartphone also features a large, black camera circle, similar to the one found in
the Lumia 1020
. Based on the fact that there is no bulge, it is unlikely, however, that this is using the same 41-megapixel camera found in that supershooter. Still, there's room to hope that it features a slightly cut-down version of the Lumia 1020's superbly crisp, if at a times flawed optical system.
About the only additional hint we can see from the images is that the phone will feature physical buttons.
The name is a subjective of active debate. Some believe this is
the upcoming Nokia device known as "Tesla"
, an AT&T Inc. (
) exclusive that is expected to feature some sort of more
advanced form of wireless charging
that it could be named the Lumia 730, while
it will likely be called the Lumia 830.
Either way, from what we can see thus far, it's a good-looking phone.

I still like my Lumia 920 better,, and have not seen a mobile i like more, eider in looks department, or handling the telephone it self, as the rounded corners really are nice to hold on to.

I agree. I'm partial to the looks of the 920 as well.
I hope they continue with that look in the next large 6" pone (the 1520 replacement). But please, DSDA and microSD please.
This photo of the 830 definitely looks better than the previous 820 (a Little too rounded).

I had the 810 I think, the WP7.5 before moving to the 920. Although I liked most of the improvements, I did not like the screen as much. It was higher res but they went with a different LCD type and the blacks weren't great. It was very noticeable. Also the way they inlaid the screen you had that plastic rim going around it that was almost flush but not quite. To me this was a step back from the previous models where the screen was completely flush with the body. These are really just nitpicks as I really liked that phone. I bought the 1020 when my 920 was murdered by gravity (RIP buddy)It has the flush screen and the blacks are black again. It's everything the 920 is but with the gigantorrific camera. Sadly they took away wireless charging lol. Just cant win
