Alleged photos of a mid-range Lumia 830 appear for your viewing pleasure
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.

If there's an SD card slot.....
I'll gladly but it then.
im trying to find a sweetdeal for my brother, he doesnt want to pay 500€ for his phone..since its his first smartphone.
but the xhoices are limited!
or 92€ for 520, 140€ something for 630 or above 300€ for 920. why cant he get a 1gb ram device between those? (i count 920 as top model, cuz i lt was one!)
The smaller 1020 style camera hump is interesting but only if it's justified by actually being 41mp.
2. In the second picture, in the lower left-hand corner, you will see a capacitive button, placed in a spot where most Windows Phones have a capacitive camera button.
3. In the final picture, (this is purely how I see it) the edge of the screen looks to be raised up off of the back plate. This could just be a) how the picture was taken or b) how I am looking at the picture.
Any feedback or thoughts on what I'm saying? Thanks.
2nd, yeah there seems body colored camera key as it is a bit of camera centric phone.
Not clear with 3rd point.
I hate the camera and this looks like an 5-inch device, and I don't like phablets.
I currently own the Lumia 820, and I really hope that this will not be the new version of it.
It could be the 830 but it's most likely an old build of it... Actually, it may even be an old build of the 929/930.
