    Looks like my Lumia 620 replacement. 4,5" is perfect.
    I agree. 4.5" is absolutely perfect!

    This unofficial render looks beautiful. The gunmetal frame on the black is a nice touch, as opposed to black on black like with the Lumia 930.

    If it even comes close to this render, it's gonna be a gorgeous looking device!!!!!

    Hmm that does look more convincing. Thanks for posting. Anything smaller than a 5" display though and I'll reluctantly have to pass. Nice looking device though.

    So what do you all think are the possibilities for that slit at the bottom on the back? Really hope it suggests interchangeable backs as Chris Wayne 2 suggested. What else could it be though? I doubt there'd be a mic that size/shape.

    I'm thinking that I will upgrade to the 830 from my 822. Exactly what I was hoping for!

    If this thing comes in at under $299.99 out the door no contract I will divert from the search for a low down 1020.

    I hope L830 will have these features:
    - dual SIM option
    - glance screen
    - wireless charging
    If so, I'm going to upgrade from my L820, and sell my L520, which I use as second device.

    This seems just like a thinner/lighter 920 with a better camera. Still not worth upgrading a 2012 920 from though.

    Who are they targeting with these upper midrange phones?

    For those of us on Verizon who didn't bite on the Icon, this seems like a good upgrade. I'll certainly be going for it.

    This is for the Moto X crowd, if they launch it at the right price ($399?). Great phone that is "good enough" specs-wise but is more of an all-around great phone at a totally reasonable price. Sort of the Volkswagen Golf of phones.

    The Moto X is the high end line. I like you mean the Moto G. ;)

    No, I mean the Moto X. The specs in the Moto X were outdated for a "high-end" phone - 720p display, same S4Pro dual core as a L920, etc. Yet by lowering the price and not concentrating marketing on specs, Moto was able to sell it as their high-end phone...and it got great reviews. My gut says this is what will happen with the 830. The 730 and to some extent 630 will compete with the Moto G.

    Then the X+1 will be high end then, as it will be 1080p and S801.

    If Verizon gets this device exclusively. They will become the best place to be a windows phone lover. I wish Tmobile stepped their game up and at LEAST update the 925 to cyan

    I am concerned with the amount of RAM this device has as well as the processor. If it at least has a qualcom 600 and 2gb of ram. This is a winner

    Yeah sorry I'm obviously not making myself clear. I'm not saying that this phone will compete with the X+1. The original question was "who is it aimed at" and the answer is "people who know that bleeding-edge on-paper specs aren't necessary to enjoy a phone that feels like a flagship and saves a few hundred bucks"

    I think its aimed at users who like some powerful options in a small form factor.

    I think the 830 will be a smaller version of the 930 for half the price.

    Looks like it'll be a bit different aesthetically as well... namely squared corners vs round (930).

    I think the phone is probably aimed for Tmo or Europe if the idea is 90% of the Icon for 1/2 price. On the other US carriers the phones are subsidized anyways so it makes much more sense to spend $50-100 more for the top of the line.

    I have owned a 820 since the day it was available in India. If the pictures (particularly the metallic ones) are true and it indeed has a 20MP pure view camera, I think I may finally upgrade to it. Only thing that may hold me back is the price. I hope it is not priced more than $300 (roughly 20,000 INR). If the 730 is around $225 and 830 for $300 that would be the right pricing for these 'mid-range' phones.
    I do wish though that its screen size is actually 5" and not 4.5". Current 4.3" screen looks absolutely tiny to me.

    Considering the 630 has a 4.5" display and the 730 is rumored to be 4.7", I highly doubt the 830 will be anything smaller than 4.7". Anything smaller would be a little ridiculous IMO for an "affordable high end phone" as this is rumored to be. I too am hoping for at least 5", but I'm thinking 4.7" is more likely. Either way, don't expect it to be smaller than that.
