Microsoft's Lumia 830 leaks again, best images of new device so far

Later this week, Microsoft will be hosting a press conference on September 4th where it is expected that the company will announce a few new devices like the Lumia 730 and 830. We have already seen the 830 leak a few times, and thanks to another leak, we have the best look yet at the new device.

As you can see from the images in this post, the device will feature a removable and interchangeable back shell, wireless charging, a 10 megapixel camera, and possibly the high-fidelity audio recording that can be found on the Lumia 930. The camera is also said to support Nokia's PureView technology too.

Based on the number of the device, being in the 800 series, we would expect this device to be priced and marketed as a mid-range phone. Seeing that the phone pictured in this post is a fully working model, we suspect that this device will start showing up sooner, rather than later, on retail shelves.

It is good to see that the PureView technology is starting to make its way down into lower-priced handsets. The imaging tech will help to improve Nokia's now legendary status of producing handsets with fantastic imaging capabilities.

With Microsoft's event set to kick off in a little over a day, it won't be long until we get the full breakdown of specs from the company.

Removable battery and wireless recharge, 10/20MB PV is going to make this device a definite hit. I hope there's a MicroSD slot as well.

I think it was quite easy doing the same removable back cover and MicroSD for the 930 too.
You can remove the back cover on the 930 but you need a special tool to be insert on the SIM tray and voila the back cover pop out.
I'm quite comfortable with 32GB on my 930 but many don't

specs seem perfect.

5" display, 720p screen = better battery life
, high screen to size ratio = compact phone for the screen size
, pureview camera
, wireless charging
, better Audio
, microSD slot
, swappable battery
, removable covers

I don't want a 5 inch screen. 4.5 inch was just fine with the 925. If they are going to jump to a 5 inch then a 1080p screen to be added. 10mp seem a little small for a 830. 16mp would be great. Which they would do black and not white.

ummmmmm 720P ie. 1280x720 imo me is more than enough for a 4.8/ 5" screen. battery life has more value for me than FullHD /Quad HD 5" display

it looks so much like a 1020 with a 925 body. Why would they waste such a great camera with only 10 mb why not put 20 or 30 in it
I really wish there is a big mistake and this is the new 1030 with new and smaller pureview camera at 41 mp

We don't know if it's a waste or not until we see it in action and also know what the price for this phone will be. If it's priced good then there's really no issue here and I expect their 10MP camera is going to give you better or the same quality images as other OEMs 12-16MP cameras, there's more than just megapixels to taking a good photo.

They need to make a flagship phone with similar characteristics--removable back, removable battery, microSD slot, etc. THAT's how you go head-to-head with Android.

Too many of the Nokia phones have been hobbled--innovative in some features, yet lacking in others (like expandable storage)... and that needs to change.

I don't care about removable storage, but I want a killer camera with Xenon flash, 1080 screen, wireless charging integrated, and the fastest proc available.
