Lumia 830, Lumia 730 and Lumia 735 announced in Berlin

    As you probably know, the largest consumer electronics exhibition IFA 2014 will be held in Berlin from September 5 to 10 . However, the time for announcements has already come.



    In the framework of the special event of Microsoft, held under the slogan “Ready for #morelumia?”, We introduced three smartphones from the new line: the thin Lumia 830 and two “selfies” Lumia 730 DS and Lumia 735.

    Nokia Lumia 830




    The first novelty of the event was the vice flagship Nokia Lumia 830. The smartphone successfully combines successful design solutions of its predecessors, such as, for example, Nokia Lumia 1020 . But most of all he picked out in appearance the flagship model of the "big brother" - Lumia 930 .

    At the heart of the Lumia 830 case, as well as the flagship presented in the spring, is a monolithic metal frame in silver or black., Which is also a design element of the smartphone. The front part is almost completely covered with a slightly convex Gorilla 3.0 protective glass, and on the back there is a colored protective polycarbonate cover. The smartphone is presented in full black, as well as combinations of a silver frame and a back cover of white, bright orange or bright green. A similar design “recipe” has already become traditional for Lumia and allows you to focus on both lovers of vibrant colorful design and conservative users.

    Another important point regarding the physical characteristics of the new smartphone is its thickness and weight. They are 8.5 mm and 150 grams, respectively, making the Lumia 830 the thinnest and lightest device in the lineup at the moment. The length and width of the new smartphone are 139.4 x 70.7 mm.



    It is worth paying attention to the technical component. The smartphone is equipped with a quad-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with an Adreno 305 graphics chip and 1 GB of RAM.

    Lumia 830 has 16 GB of internal memory expandable with microSD memory cards (up to an impressive 128 GB). Plus, all users will be available for free 15 GB in the cloud OneDrive.

    A clear five-inch IPS-display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (pixel density - 296 pixels / inch) with ClearBlack technology boasts excellent readability in sunlight and makes it easier to control your smartphone in various conditions thanks to an ultra-sensitive sensor.



    The Lumia 830 is equipped with a main 10 MP camera with PureView technology, an LED flash, ZEISS optics (6-lens optical system) and the lightest and thinnest optical image stabilization system that we have ever created. The camera is highly sensitive, allowing you to take high-quality pictures in low light conditions. The size of the sensor is 1 / 3.4 inches, the focal length is 26 mm, and the aperture is f / 2.2. The front camera has a resolution of 0.9 megapixels and a wide-angle lens for better shooting self-portraits and video calls.

    The main camera allows you to shoot video with a resolution of Full HD (1080p). And Nokia Rich Recording sound recording technology and three high-performance microphones will provide sound recording in the “surround sound” format (5.1) without distortion over the entire full range.



    A powerful replaceable battery (which is rare today for flagship devices) with a capacity of 2200 mAh will provide up to 14.8 hours of talk time (on a 3G network). You can recharge your Lumia 830 battery with QI wireless charging.

    The smartphone supports SensorCore technology, which allows you to collect information for fitness applications (such as Health and Fitness and Adidas miCoach) in low-power environments.

    In the new Lumia 830, the latest Lumia Denim update with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 is already preinstalled. We will tell you a little more about it later in the post.

    Worldwide sales of the Lumia 830 will begin this fall. In Russia, the novelty will appear approximately in October. The retail price will be announced additionally (the expected cost will be about 330 euros, excluding taxes and discounts).

    Presented today, the Lumia 730 Dual SIM and Lumia 735 are two versions of the same model with similar characteristics and design, focused on video calls on Skype and shooting self-portraits (or so-called “selfies”). The main difference between the models is that the Lumia 735 supports LTE networks, and the Lumia 730 DS supports the simultaneous operation of two SIM cards.

The focal length of this camera is 24 mm, and the aperture is f / 2.4. Thanks to the above characteristics and a wide-angle lens, the front camera is well suited for taking group photos with friends and for collective communication in Skype.

The internal memory of the device is 8 GB, but it can be expanded thanks to MicroSD memory cards with a maximum capacity of up to 128 GB and cloud storage 15. Here it is worth recalling that with the recent Lumia Cyan update, all Lumia devices were able to install applications on a memory card (respectively, if the device supports working with them).

    A 2220 mAh battery allows you to use your smartphone all day without thinking about charging. The maximum talk time on the 3G network is 17 hours. The Lumia 735 has support for QI wireless charging (but only with the optional Wireless Charging Shell (CC-3086) - UPD ).
