Earlier this week, Microsoft unveiled a number of new Windows Phone devices at IFA 2014 in Berlin. Both devices are expected to launch by the end of this month.
According to a new report, the Lumia 735 and Lumia 830 may make their way to the United States in the coming weeks. Nokia US website was recently updated with Lumia 735 and Lumia 830 listed as “coming soon.”
Paul Thurrott of WinSuperSite reports that Microsoft mentioned in the pre-briefing session that they’ll not launch in the US, but the presence on the Nokia’s US website indicate otherwise. There’s no word on which carrier it will be available on — carriers have yet to confirm the availability. There’s a chance we may get to see the unlocked version going on sale at Microsoft Store, but that’s just a speculation.
Nokia Lumia 735 comes with a 4.7-inch display with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 SoC clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB storage with microSD card slot, 6.7MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, 2,200 mAh battery and runs Windows Phone 8.1 Denim update as its operating system.
On the other hand, the affordable flagship device, the Lumi 830, comes with a 5-inch 720p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 SoC clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB expandable storage, 10MP PureView camera, a 2,200 mAh battery and runs Windows Phone 8.1.
