    Plenty of Lumia 830 news today. Was hoping for a bigger display on this (rumored to be even smaller than the Lumia 730), but it'll be cool to see a premium camera on a mid-range device.

    Rumored announcement is September 4 at IFA (along with the Lumia 730): Microsoft IFA press event invite for September 4 may tease 'selfie' Lumia 730 reveal | Windows Phone Central

    Rumored specs:

    4.5 inch 720p display
    20.1MP PureView Camera
    SD Card Support

    More:

    If it had a 5" screen it would have been perfect.

    I'm with you on this. 'Tis the best candidate as an upgrade from my 620, though as a tall guy, I want something between 4.7 and 5 inches. I hope the rumoured specs is untrue on that part.

    More and more mid range and budget phones, and more exclusives? :'(

    It may just be wishful thinking on my part, but that video shows the phone with 3 rows of tiles, not 2. It sure looks to me like the screen is bigger than 4.5"

    I really hope so. Doesn't make much sense to me that it would be smaller than the Lumia 730's display. Then again the 820 only had a 4.3" screen.

    Looks like my Lumia 620 replacement. 4,5" is perfect.

    I'd be just fine with a 4.5" screen. If the processor is even a little bit faster than the one in my 1020 and the form factor is a little smaller, this will absolutely be my next phone.

    The 730's display is 4.7 including the on-screen keyboard so they're just roughly equal.

    Yea; but if it announced on Sept 4 it might be Juvember the 40th before it actually makes it too stores. Sounds nice to me and would be a great replacement for my 820 (which has still not received cyan/8.1 with AT&T). Taking all this with a cow lick block of salt. Would hope they put a bigger battery in it and while the 4.5 screen is OK; a 4.7 would be nicer. Still with the trickle of phones from Microsoft/Nokia this sounds nice.

    Reading the article on WPCentral today really has me thinking of a possible contender to my recently purchased 1020. If it comes with at least a 720p screen in the 4.5-4.7 region, with wireless charging, 20mp camera, and an SD slot, I just might be on board. Also an updated core would be interesting to see. Don't get me wrong I really love my 1020 and the amazing camera but a 20mp one with SD expansion would be perfect for me. I will keep my hopes in check as the cancelled McLaren already let me down this year but I like what I'm hearing.

    This exactly, but for my 920. ANY processor they'd put in a midrange is going to be an improvement in both speed and battery at this point. I'd love a 4.7" screen in the same footprint as my 920, and an equivalent or better camera. Wireless charging, glance, and a prettier body than the Icon? Take my money T-Mobile!

    I wish Nokia/MS wouldn't leave so much unused space above and below the screen. If they managed to shrink that then their phones would have a much smaller footprint.

    I think AT&T is well aware that if there are indeed 3 variants of this phone on U.S. carriers, people would choose the ones with built-in wireless charging. I think they'll attempt to compensate for that by having exclusivity on some colors, where as Verizon and T-Mobile will probably have the basic black and white. We'll see.

    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.

    The render looks nice, but from the leaked pics the back will be raised a little, and there is a slight camera hump.

    Call me when they announce a high-end phone on AT&T. I'm not re-upping at $150 for 2 years for some mid-range phone.

    Haven't seen this leak. Very interesting. Love the highlighter yellow on the metal frame. Hope it comes in orange as well. Would love interchangeable backs! Been clamoring for it on a high end Lumia for years now. Doubt we'll see that though. But add that plus Glance Screen to it and I'm sold... will sell my 1520.3 for this.

    Where did you find these photos by the way?

    *EDIT* I think these are fake. Upon further inspection, the source also posted this image which appears to be extremely fake, discrediting the entire thing for me: bu8ry5tcuaa_kr4.jpg

    Ah, this is only a dream. The design looks too good to be true and until I see it for real I can't get my hopes up that it will look like this. Sexy though...but probably not the real thing.

    Very odd skewing and button sizes. The frame is thicker on the bottom than the top. And the scaling is off... 2nd pic suggests thinner frame than 1st pic.

    I think it has to do with the angle of the picture and the second picture looks distorted to me, maybe wider than it should be.
