    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.
    I don't know, I think that 4.5" is really the sweet spot and the demand for it will be there. I always have this argument with my wife, ladies because they carry a purse always go with the huge screen phones. Us guys gotta have them in our pockets, so some of phablets are really uncomfortable.

    BTW, suddenly I don't even care about getting the 8.1 update on my 822 anymore. I just want this 830 to come out!

    Finally, real choices! I have until December to decide between the M8 and anything else that comes out around then. I'm afraid to leave Nokia because I doubt htc will be continuing firmware updates very far into the future, but then again Nokia has only been making one phone and scattering features across different price ranges (an SD card is not exclusively for low end devices Nokia!). If this has a removable battery ill probably be forced to get it as I doubt any others will.

    Was hoping for more leaks and info on this device early this week as promised by some tech sites, but no dice.

    September 4th is not that long away! Wonder if they will pull a Verizon; where the phone is already stock and ready to sell? It would be great if it were available at the Microsoft retail store the day or after the announcement of it. I will buy it if there is a T-Mobile version so it has to be compatible - and T-Mobile does not do something stupid to alter the 830 like they did for the 925 and 521 models; or I not buying - not switching carriers.

    That's always been the lone gripe I have with Nokia... phones being released so long after announcement. I've loved everything else about the brand. Hopefully the phone will be available immediately for once. I'd prefer an unlocked international version to be released right away, but will settle for a carrier variant.

    I think all 830 variants will have a snapdragon 800 and 2 gb ram. The 830 will have a 4.7" HD screen and a 13 mp camera. The Verizon version will have a 4.5" screen, and the tmobile version will have a 20 MP camera.

    The snapdragon 800 is a year old and is a battery hog; the 801 is the one that is a great SoC! It built-in for efficient battery operation and is still the same speed as the 800 and is price a little cheaper too! Nokia/Microsoft would be just plain lazy to put the 800 in when the 801 is available. Consumers will know what is what! You cannot fool them in the long term since they learn quickly!

    Why would they make the 830 faster than the 930? And the 801 is basically an overclocked 800 with a few other changes. They even share the model number. And consumers do not learn quickly. They just fall for the bigger number.

    I doubt this but I'd love if it were true. It would basically be a smaller 930 in this case. I don't think they'll include specs that match a high end model they just released. I'm guessing SD600.

    Edit: If it includes expandable storage this would actually make it better than the 930. Another reason why unfortunately I don't think your prediction will come to fruition.

    No you got it wrong; the 805 is the overclocked 800! 801 is design for battery efficiency! The upcoming 810 is 64 bit and it rumor to be 2X the speed of the 800!

    Amen to that. Though in the past Nokia made the mistake of releasing a much smaller 620, but rectified it with 625. I hope they have learnt the lesson that most users want bigger screens. only if they go beyond 5" will people crib about it being too large. With today's phones and the content available, I do find 4.5" to be inadequate.

    The 801 is just the 8974AB or AC, clocked at 2.36 or 2.46 GHz. The 800 is clocked at 2.26 GHz. The GPU is also upgraded, and it has eMMC 5.0 support. The Snapdragon 805 is clocked at 2.7 GHz, uses faster Krait 450 cores, and the new adreno 420 gpu. The 810 is actually a new design, but Qualcomm needed the 805 so people would not complain they were moving too slowly. Then when that was delayed, they decided to rebrand some snapdragon 800 models as snapdragon 801.

    And I originally thought the 830 would have a snapdragon 600, but unless Microsoft adds support in update 2, and it comes with update 2 before update 1 has been officially released, it will use an 800, 801, or 400. I predict it will use the 800, and be microsofts version of the 930

    Alrighty all of you spatial acuity folks, who wants to start some early comparative dimensions on the screen (based on these photos)? It certainly looks to be at least 4.7" just based on the height of the device.

    I did that, and it is a 5 inch screen.

    Hope you're right! But if that's the case, how is this phone any worse than a 930? Something significant has to be worse else I don't think they'd call it an 830, but rather a 935 or something.

    From the leaked photos, I doubt its a 4.5" screen. Probably 4.7" or 5". Other specs on guessing it'll have is a 1080p display and 1 GB RAM.

    I definitely wanna get this 830 when it comes out so I have a question for you guys. I'd like to keep my 822 as a backup. So how would that work? Will it be as simple as just switching SIM cards from one phone to the other? Or what else would I need to do? I've always donated my old phones as soon as I get a new one, so need some advice. Obviously am on Verizon, how does that affect me?

    There are two ways it is worse. It has a 720p screen and a 13 MP camera with one flash. There are also two ways it is better, it has a bigger battery, and it is thinner.

    I have been comparing photos of the 830 vs 920 and 930.

    From the different angle pics I'm gonna say its more likely 4.7 - 5"
    Its dimensions if they are correctly given in the WPC article suggest its gonna be 4.7" at least.

    I can't wait for this phone.
    Upgrade time is in December for me and this thing will hopefully be released by then.
    My 820 has served me well and will be a great back up phone once this 830 is in my hands.

    Seriously thinking of moving to this phone from my 1020, depending what the final specs end up being!

    The dimensions given in wpcentral article is almost the same as Lumia 930 which means that specific phone was at least sporting 5" screen.

    Though I've a feeling that 4.5-4.7" rumors maybe true about its variants coming to US carriers while the one leaked was maybe International version with 5" screen.

    Speaking of backup phones, can you answer my earlier post regarding the subject?

    It all depends on whether the 830 sports a nano or micro sim.
    If its micro then its just swap the sim back into the 820.
    If its nano then I will have to get a prepaid micro sim for the 820 if I brick/lose the 830
