Announced earlier this month at the IFA 2014, the Lumia 830 is set to hit retail in global markets starting this month with a EUR 330 price tag or equivalent in other markets. Recently, Microsoft held a launch event in Vietnam to announce its mid-rage flagship device, the Lumia 830. The handset comes with a VND 7,999,000 (almost $375) price tag, and will hit retail in the country next month.
The mid-range Lumia 830 packs a 5-inch display rocking a 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. Under the hood, there’s a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, coupled with a microSD card slot for expansion. The most attractive attribute is the 10MP PureView camera on the back, with Carl Zeiss Optics and optical images stabilization.
There’s a 0.9MP secondary camera, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, LTE support, a 2,200 mAh battery, and will be one of the first devices to launch with the Windows Phone 8.1/Denim update out of the box.
