While we have our doubts about the marketing merits of companies selling handsets as "selfie" phones, it seems that it is a going trend. Microsoft will jump on that particular bandwagon with a new device that has been rumoured for some time but has now shown up for the first time in a leaked image.

The smartphone in question is called the Nokia (by Microsoft) Lumia 730, which is probably a direct replacement for the Lumia 720. It is being built with the codename Superman and like the 720 it will be a mid-range device that will pack a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of on board storage.

The image turned up over at WPcentral and shows a green Nokia Lumia device that has a sizeable screen, rumoured to be 4.7-inches with 720p resolution. Looking at the images that seems about right, but of course we are not 100% sure until we get some more details. As this is essentially being marketed as a selfie phone (i.e. a handset that lets you take good front facing camera shots), we are of course going to be concentrating on the front lens.

The new handset will get a 5 megapixel front facing camera, although some earlier reports have suggested a 6.5MP snapper. Either way, the "selfie" lens will pack significantly more megapixels than the 1.2MP shooter found on the Lumia 720. Microsoft is also working on a larger Lumia 830 and it is thought that the company will launch both of these handsets alongside each other at the end of the summer.
