Did the Nokia Lumia 830 just Lose its PureView Status?
The recently Microsoft acquired hardware division of Nokia seems to be getting busy with another Windows Phone powered device. The Nikoa Lumia 830 has been making its rounds in the rumour mill lately with nearly monthly leaks of the device in addition to the teaser that Microsoft released for IFA, it looks like the device may launch soon.
We’ve heard rumours of the Lumia 830 having a PureView camera with a 20-MegaPixel sensor. However, it appears like the rumours were just that – rumours. It appears that pictures which were leaked earlier this year claiming that the Lumia 830 will be sporting a camera hump to fit the 20-MegaPixel sensor are mistaken, as the latest rumours claim that Nokia has made the decision to make the Nokia Lumia 830 a mid-range device, slicing the pixel count of the camera down to half with a 10-MegaPixel camera.
This comes in addition to past rumours stating that the device will come in two variants, a 4.7-inch and 4.5-inch displays with a 720p HD resolution. The Lumia 830 is also rumoured to be one of the first Windows Phone devices to support microSD card expansion.
If the leaked roadmap of Nokia devices is anything to go by, we’re definitely seeing this and another Nokia Lumia device at IFA which begins in a few hours.
