    So we'll find out all the details next week, but does anyone care to guess at when it will hit the US market? Considering dummy phones are already being shipped in India, I would guess they'll be among the first to have the 830 (likely September). I'd be really happy if it could hit the US by October.

    I think early October is a fair and reasonable expectation. If we're lucky and Nokia pushes their phones out sooner now that they're under the auspices of Microsoft, we could even see it in late September.

    I really like this phone. Happy that it still has "physical" camera and nav buttons :). And the design!!! :-o

    Before he retired, evleaks leaked the release schedule. They should come out a week after the 530.

    When does the 530 come out?

    On September 4, the same day the 730, 735, and 830 are being announced.

    Interesting! That would be a much earlier announcement-to-release time frame than I'm used to from Nokia.

    So if the 830 comes out soon I will be happy because by the time I am due to upgrade it will have dropped in price.

    I hope it does get shown off next week. It will be a big let down if its only the 730 displayed on the 4th

    Na, the 830 is definitely being announced on the 4th, it's obvious from the Microsoft invitation.

    Yep, camera housing off the 830 for sure.

    So with the addition of today's rumors, here's what the Lumia 830 is set to look like specs/feature wise:

    Aluminum frame with choice of black, white, green, orange (possibly highlighter yellow?) back covers
    5" IPS LCD 720p display
    Removable battery and back cover
    10 megapixel PureView camera
    SD400 processor
    2gb RAM
    microSD support
    Glance Screen support (speculation based on display tech used)

    Anything greater than a $300 price point for this phone will be too much IMO. That said, I think it'll end up going for $349 initially.

    *edited to replace SD800 with SD400

    MOAR leaked images! I prefer the 930's design but this is still very nice!

    Anyone got a credible insight as to whether these images give anything away about if the 830 supports Qi or not? Is the big black bit NFC?

    The source of the leak claims that there is indeed Qi on the back. On the bad news side, it seems further leaks are confirming the SD400 chip set and not 800.

    Rest assured, if you're on ATT in the US, that Qi will get ripped out beforehand.

    I'm sure it will, one reason why I'm not on AT&T.

    Edited the spec summary I posted above to reflect more reliable leaks of a SD400 instead of the 800 :(

    What are the real-world implications of 400 vs 800? Inferior GPU so I gather, but I'm not really a gamer. Do you think it's likely to make a noticeable difference in day-to-day use of the core OS and basic apps?

    Sort of surprising that they've not followed the pattern of 820/920 having essentially the same hardware engine. So currently your only choice for high end hardware (non-phablet) lacks Glance and micro-SD support.

    Hope the 830 does have Qi, good effort if so given how thin it is.

    Consequencies of using the S400:

    • Gaming, because GPU is crap [not an issue for you]
    • Picture-processing-time, because SoC is really a slow one, shoot-to-shoot time will be average at best
    • Multitasking capabilities will suffer
    • open large Apps
    • good chance that support for updates ends earlier because of insufficient SoC (like the 7.x line), at least earlier than e.g. 930/1520
    • Most important (to me): We are talking about a SoC for Moto G/ 630 for a "mid-to-highend" phone not yet out. This SoC is allready slow, but in 2 years it will be just an awsome archaic kind of tech, no way i buy a phone allready oudated. Nobody knows what the future brings and reserves are always a good thing when you don't buy absolute entry level tech like 630/Moto G

    Coming from 820, I will be very interested if it can provide longer battery life. Also this is a quad core processor compared to a dual core used in 820.

    Which has nothing do do with performance, as long as the software doesen't use the cores. Most apps don't use quads yet, but they indeed use the much higer performance of the two cores of the S4 plus vs. the comperatively slow four cores of the S400.

    There are notebook Dual-core SoCs which run circles around every mobile quad and there are chinese octa-core ARM SoC's which doesen't mean they are in any way nearly as fast as a S800.

    A S400 is just crap for a phone at the end of 2014 and above 200$, there is nothing that can lower the pain. I would be fine if they bought up the rest of the S600 production at least - all good. But an S400 will be runing 50$ devices soon isn't an option for a "affordable highend phone"
