Microsoft's 'affordable flagship', the Lumia 830, to launch in China on October 13

Microsoft finally launched its Xbox One console in China today - after a brief delay - but the company is already preparing to roll out another of its devices there in a couple of weeks' time. 

Microsoft has confirmed that its Lumia 830 - which the company calls the first 'affordable flagship' - will go on sale in China on October 13. As LiveSino.net reports, the handset will be priced at 2399 CNY (roughly $390 USD), and all four colour options - black, white, orange and green - will be available for Chinese buyers. 

The Lumia 830 was unveiled earlier this month alongside the Lumia 730 and 735 'selfie phones' - so-called because of their impressive front-facing cameras. The Lumia 830 will ship with the latest Lumia Denim firmware on board, and will include support for the localised Chinese version of Cortana, known as 'Xiao Na', out of the box. 

Key specs of the Lumia 830 include: 

  • 5-inch HD (1280x720px) ClearBlack IPS LCD with Gorilla Glass 3
  • Quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB onboard storage (plus microSD support up to 128GB)
  • 10MP PureView camera with ZEISS optics and LED flash 
  • 0.9MP wide-angle front-facing camera
  • NFC
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • 139.4 x 70.7 x 8.5mm; 150g 

The Lumia 830 will also go on sale in other markets next month, including the UK
