It's expected that Microsoft will release a number of Windows Phones this year (as well as X), but we could be looking at a Lumia 820 replacement to bolster its mid-range offering. Photos have been published on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo, showing off an unannounced Lumia device which WPDang believes to be the Lumia 830. We're not sure how real (or fake) these images are, but the pictured smartphone appears to sport an aluminum frame with a polycarbonate rear, much like the Lumia 930, and it looks pretty snazzy.
What's interesting to note in the photos is how the unnamed handset features capacitive buttons, as opposed to on-screen alternatives. The rear camera cover looks an awful lot like the Lumia 1020, but it's not likely this device would come with a 41MP camera if it's indeed a mid-range entry. Details are scarce, but it's a pretty device to look at, especially if it were in green or orange. Take this with a grain of salt, folks. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments.
