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.

Speaker grill is on the bottom back of the device... not a fan of that layout. Also, I don't like the new box stylings of the 930/Icon and now 830. I like the curved design of the Lumia 900/920/925/928/1020/1520/etc. much better.
The only phone that seems to have a good speaker layout is the HTC One series. If they would make a WP variant of their current model then I would happily move off of the Nokia line... but that probably won't happen.

"The only phone that seems to have a good speaker layout is the HTC One series."
The problem with that is giant bezels. The 5 inch One M88 is almost the same size as the 5.5 inch G3. This would only benefit you if you listen to music on it, without headphones, which I imagine is useful for some, but not most people. I listen to music on my phone almost never. When I do its usually on my car via Bluetooth or using other speakers or a headset.

It's a welcome change to me. I am not a fan of the super curvy designs of smartphones in the past few years. I'd rather have something in the form factory like the current gen iPhone. Sharper boxier edges make things look more defined to me. The Icon was actually one of the first Nokia phones I had considered buying, until I found out it was Verizon only and its AT&T equivalent was not going to be available in the US.
