Nokia Lumia 830, Lumia 730 and Lumia 735 officially announced

Nokia Lumia 830

Microsoft announced a trio of Nokia Lumia phones, Lumia 830, Lumia 730 and Lumia 735. The first of the pack is the slimmest Nokia Windows Phone device to date, though it’s not a high-end phone by any stretch of imagination. It does introduce Nokia’s awesome camera technology to the mid-range segment and we salute Nokia/Microsoft for taking that step.

As for the Lumia 730 and Lumia 735, these two are made for selfies, sporting a wide-angle, front-facing camera with 5-megapixel sensor. The former is a 3G-enabled dual SIM phone, whereas the latter can take only a single SIM card while providing users with fast 4G LTE connectivity.

Both devices will begin shipping globally this month.

Finally, a word about the mentioned Lumia Denim update; it combines the latest Windows Phone 8.1 update with “exclusive experiences for Lumia smartphones,” such as various imaging enhancements that make the camera work faster and more intuitively.

Lumia Denim will begin to roll out as an over the air update to all Lumia Windows Phone 8 smartphones during Q4 2014, following partner testing and approvals…

    I THINK UPDATES THAT DONOT CHANGE THE SMART PHONES WIRELESS TRANSCIEVER OPERATIONS OR DATA USAGE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO BE PREAPPROVED BY A SMART PHONE CARRIER.. WHY SHOULD A SMART PHONE CARRIER WORRY ABOUT HOW YOUR SMART PHONE’S CAMERA OR DOCUMENT EDITING CAPABILTY IS CHANGED.
