Down on a lack of Lumia announcements recently? Well, Nokia promised and now it is delivering. First, the Lumia 635 came to Rogers, TELUS and Fido, and now a bigger, better one is on its way.
Nokia Canada has announced that the Lumia 830 is coming soon to Canada. The company hasn’t announced pricing, carrier partners or availability — you know, all the things we want to know — but at least something is better than nothing.
Announced during IFA earlier this month, the Lumia 830 sports a 5-inch 720p ClearBlack display, a 1.2Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a 10MP PureView camera with OIS. Of course, Windows Phone 8.1 is on board, and the device will come pre-loaded with Lumia Denim, which includes Cortana localized for Canadian audiences.
With a €330 price tag, the Lumia 830 isn’t cheap, but we’re expecting it to debut with a no-contract price of between $350 and $400.
The Lumia 830 may be one of Nokia’s last smartphones as it completes its transition to Microsoft Devices, so lament the death of a brand while you look forward to the device itself.
