This is certainly an interesting development. According to a leaked set of images from China’s WPDang, Nokia is set to release a new model, the Lumia 830, sometime in the future. While at first the new phone resembles the 820 in some ways, it is actually slightly narrower than the upcoming follow-up to the Lumia 800. While there is no indication that the 830 will be more powerful than the 820, WPCentral is positing that this could be in fact a successor to the successful (and cheap) Lumia 710.
Keeping in mind that the Lumia 820 has some pretty decent specs — a 1.5Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, an 8MP camera and a 4.3-inch WVGA display — the Lumia 830 could take those numbers down a notch and appeal to the entry-level market Nokia needs so badly. The Lumia 710 sported the same 1Ghz processor as the Lumia 800 and 900, but fell behind in terms of screen technology and camera. It was also sold for an amazing price here in Canada and around the world, and Nokia stands to benefit from such a variety of products.
I also love that green shade, so let’s hope Nokia starts using that as another colour in its repertoire. One more photo after the break.
