Earlier this year, when Microsoft bought the smartphone division of Nokia, many wondered if the division would continue pumping out devices like it had when it was under Nokia"s control. While we have seen the Lumia 530 and many other Windows Phones that will be released later this year, we now also know that there is a new Lumia on its way to AT&T.
The device is codenamed "Train" and it will be headed to AT&T as the Lumia 830. While we don"t have a release date, yet, we do expect it to show up in the not-too-distant future.
The Lumia 830 is expected to be a mid-range successor to the Lumia 820, shown here
Images of a rumored Lumia 830 appear to be legitimate but it"s hard to say if the phone in the picture is actually the Train handset. The information about heading to AT&T comes from a reliable source, so take it as fact until proven otherwise.
Seeing that the HTC One Windows Phone is headed to Verizon - and may well be an exclusive, as no other version have been spotted - AT&T will be in need of a premium Windows Phone before the holiday shopping. So far, the rumors have been quiet about what or if a new Lumia will arrive besides the 830. However, we do not expect the Lumia 830 to be a premium phone.
We will keep digging to see if we can find out more about the Lumia 830 but for those of you on AT&T, this is good news as it will give you another, more modern, Windows Phone to choose from when it is time to upgrade.
