Earlier this month at IFA 2014, Microsoft announced a number of new Lumia handsets targeting different price points. There’s a entry-level Lumia 730/735, as well as a mid-range flagship dubbed as the Lumia 830.
Recently, Lumia 830, 730 and 735 went up for pre-orders in Russia through Russian Nokia Store, with an expected shipping on October 7 or later.
The Lumia 730/735 comes with a 12,990 rubles (almost $345), while the mid-range flagship Lumia 830 costs 19,990 rubles (almost $530). The smartphones usually cost a little high in Russia compared to other markets, and the latest price appear to be in line with the previous handsets.
Nokia Lumia 730/735 comes with a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 pixels display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage with a microSD card slot and 15GB free OneDrive storage. The main attraction is the 5MP wide-angle secondary camera which is said to be an excellent performer for selfies and video calls. The major difference is that Lumia 730 is dual-SIM while the Lumia 735 comes with support for single SIM with 4G LTE connectivity on board.
As for the Lumia 830, the handset comes with a similar set of specifications as the Lumia 730/735, but features a slightly bigger 5-inch 720p display, 16GB of storage, and a 10MP camera on the back with PureView technology and Carl Zeiss optics. Both devices ship with Windows Phone 8.1 Denim update as their operating system out of the box.
We’ll update you as soon as we get any information about the launch of the handset in other countries.
