Microsoft Plans to Update Skype's Features
Lumia 830 is now rumoured to sport only a 10MP camera.

Microsoft's Lumia 830, which is highly expected to see the light of the day at the upcoming IFA 2014 conference, has managed to grab the attention of prospective buyers across the world by virtue of its expected 'Nokia by Microsoft branding' and 13MP primary camera.

However, the Lumia 830 may not incorporate a 13 MP camera at all, if recent reports are anything to go by.

According to a report published in WMPoweruser (quoting a Chinese portal), the Lumia 830 may feature only a 10MP PureView primary camera. The smartphone is also expected to be driven by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (likely to be quad core), and feature a 720p display.

The smartphone is also rumoured to sport a metallic external frame, and be comparatively light.

On paper, the above specs seem reasonable considering the fact that the Lumia 830 is highly expected to be a mid-ranger, rather than a high-end flagship smartphone.

Also, the pricing of the smartphone is expected to be competitive as two other Lumia models, the Lumia 730 and Lumia 735, are both expected to be launched by Microsoft during the 4 September IFA 2014 event.

Other key hardware aspects of Lumia 830 that have surfaced as of now are:

  • 4.5in display
  • Windows Phone 8.1 operating system
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
  • 10MP rear camera
  • 5MP front snapper
  • 1GB RAM

Lumia 830's expected 5MP front camera should please those partial to a selfie.
