Nokia unveils 'affordable flagship' Lumia 830

The cheapo premium blower should retail for south of £300

Nokia wants to do away with paycheque-chunking smartphone price tags with its new low-cost flagship Lumia 830...

The guys over at Nokia (however few there are left) have built a beefy new smartphone that aims to be the most 'affordable flagship' on the market.

The 5-in 1280 x 720 IPS gorilla glass display is designed for super touch sensitivity, and makes use of Nokia's ClearBlack display which helps eliminate glare, increases contrast, and improves readability.

The Lumia 830 runs off a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU, paired with 16GB of on-board storage good for a 128GB microSD boost.

You'll also get access to 15GB of Microsoft's OneDrive cloud storage free of charge. Cloudalicious.

Upkeep of your day-to-day smartphonery will come courtesy of a 2200mAh removable battery that Nokia reckons will standby for up to 22 days.

The battery also comes with integrated Qi wireless charging, so you can ditch cables for good.

The 830 touts a 10MP rear-facing PureView camera with what Nokia reckons is its 'thinnest and lightest' optical image stabilisation system they've ever built.

The svelte device measures up at 8.5mm thin, which means its the slimmest Lumia we've ever seen.

The phone will run on Microsoft's latest Windows Phone 8.1 operating system, and will land pre-loaded with the expected fare like live tiles, Cortana, and Office.

There's also a sensory suite built in. Dubbed 'SensorCore', the allegedly low-power tracker tech will feed info to fitness apps even while the phone is 'asleep'.

Staying true to Nokia's rainbow-fondling form, the Lumia 830 will ship in bright orange, bright green, white, and black colour options.

We're expecting a 330 euro price tag, which would put the UK R.R.P somewhere around £260. Not bad.
