The Nokia/Microsoft Lumia 830 is set to land at the IFA trade show in Berlin in one week's time and will be a mid-range effort that is likely to appeal to those in emerging markets. Of course, those looking to get on the Windows Phone platform anywhere in the world will be able to get the Lumia 830 at a relatively decent price. Today the smartphone has shown up next to what is arguably the daddy of the Lumia range, the 930.A render showing the Lumia 830 shoulder to shoulder with the Lumia 930 gives us an idea of what the new handset will look like, and what its dimensions will be. As you can see, the 830 is minimally taller and narrower than its flagship sibling, while like the 930 it is reported to be built on a metal frame (edges visible) with a polycarbonate rear. While the 830 is clearly the larger device judging by this image, it will actually pack a smaller screen, which means this will be another WP device with a pretty large bezel. That said, we can?t really see that by this render, so we are worried about the scale of this image. Nevertheless, the 830 hardly looks like an ugly addition to the Lumia canon but it is not screaming must have design either. While it has been perched next to the Lumia 930 here, it will have decidedly more mid-range specs. The 930 is the current flagship of the Nokia Lumia range, sporting a 5-inch AMOLED 1080p screen and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 with 2GB of RAM. The Lumia 830 on the other hand will get a 4.5 or4.7-inch IPS 720p panel, although it will get the same Snapdragon 800/2GB Ram configuration as the 930. The new Lumia will also get a PureView camera, which will come with dedicated physical camera button and capacitive navigation buttons. source: PhoneArena
