Earlier today we gave the UK release date for the Nokia Lumia 735, and now we have details of availability for a higher-specced Lumia phone that was officially unveiled by Microsoft at the same time. We have information on the Nokia Lumia 830 price for the UK, and pre-orders are now open.
The Lumia 830 will be available from October 2nd and can be pre-ordered from two different online retailers. At Clove UK the phone will set you back Â£300 while at Unlocked Mobiles the price is just a tad more expensive at Â£304.98. At both retailers you can order the phone in a choice of black, green or orange colours. If you’re in the US you’ll be pleased to hear that this smartphone has been rumored for a release on AT&T, Sprint and Verizon, but so far there has been nothing announced about the availability date there or pricing.
The phone settles somewhere between the mid-range and top-end of the market and is likely to appeal to plenty of buyers. We gave details of specs and more in our launch article on the phone, but as a refresher the key specs of the Lumia 830 include a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, Adreno 305 GPU, a 5-inch IPS LCD display with 720p resolution resulting in 294 ppi, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory that’s expandable to 128GB via microSD.
One of its highlights is a 10-megapixel PureView rear camera featuring autofocus, LED flash, optical image stabilization and 1080p video capture. It benefits from Carl Zeiss optics and there’s also a 0.9-megapixel front-facing snapper. Rounding things off is a 2200 mAh battery and it runs Windows Phone 8.1 with the Lumia Denim update.
