Microsoft Launches The Nokia Lumia 730, 830 And 930 Smartphones In India
Will be available in stores starting from the 6th of October.
Microsoft has finally launched its Lumia 730 and Lumia 830 smartphones in India. As a bonus, the tech giant who recently acquired Nokia also decided to be generous and even launched the Lumia 930 flagship that Windows Phone fans across the country had been waiting for.
All three smartphones certainly need no introductions. While the Lumia 730 was built from the ground up for the selfie conscious, the Lumia 830 was meant to bring the PureView tech to the masses (although we are doubtful about that). The Lumia 930, Microsoft’s flagship smartphone, that was launched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, has finally made it way to India six months late.
The Nokia Lumia 730 Dual SIM is priced at Rs 15,300 and will hit the shelves on the October 6. The Lumia 830 is priced at Rs 28,800 (which is a bit pricey for an affordable smartphone) and will be available in stores and online on the October 8. The Lumia 930 will arrive in stores on the October 15 and will cost you a decent Rs 38,649, which is pretty much in line with the Samsung GALAXY S5. Microsoft also announced that it will now offer 1 TB of OneDrive storage to all Lumia users.
The Nokia Lumia 730
The Lumia 730 Dual SIM looks like a mix of the Nokia Lumia 720 and the 920, only bigger and comes with an awesome Full-HD 5MP wide-angle, front-facing camera with a focal length of 24mm. The handset has clearly been designed for selfies and Skype calls where you can literally squeeze your whole family in.
As for the specs, they are pretty much similar to the Lumia 830:
- A 4.7 inch 1280 x 720 pixel OLED display
- 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of expandable internal memory (128 GB via micro SD)
- On the back we have a 6.7 MP FF camera with LED flash and 5 MP front-facing one capable of shooting 1080p video
- Also included is a 2220 mAh battery to let you click selfies all day long
The Nokia Lumia 830
Next up is the Lumia 830. It has been designed from the ground up to click some really breathe-taking photographs including a new auto mode called Rich Capture that will allow you to tweak your images (even when it comes to the flash) long after your have clicked them. Indeed the camera does fall a bit short at 10 MP, but the PureView tech clearly saves the day. In terms of hardware and design, the Nokia Lumia 830 is Microsoft’s lightest and thinnest Windows Phone offering yet.
- We get a 5 inch ClearBlack IPS LCD of 1280 x 720 pixel resolution covered with 2.5 D curved Gorilla 3 glass
- Inside sits a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1 GB RAM and 16 GB of internal memory that is expandable up to 128 GB
- A 10 MP PureView camera sits at the back and comes with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and and LED flash, while the front gets a 1 MP camera
- Powering all of the above is a removable 2200 mAh battery
The Nokia Lumia 930
Lastly we have the Lumia 930 a smartphone that had some really big shoes to fill in being the only flagship (for normal human hands) in the Windows Phone space.
- The smartphone sports a 5 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) ClearBlack AMOLED display
- Inside, we get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with a 2.2GHz quad-core CPU coupled with 2GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory
