Lumia 830

Nokia India, the subsidiary of Microsoft Mobile, has sent out press invites for media event in New Delhi scheduled for October 1, 2014. While the invite does not specify the plans for the afternoon, from what we know, the Lumia 830 will be launched at the event. Again, there's no price indication and the rumors put the price to be anywhere from ₹21,000-30,000 (US$340-480). The Lumia 820 was priced at ₹26,000, and that could be a pretty good price point for this 'affordable flagship' phone, although I'll sheepishly confess that a higher price tag for the device wouldn't be a huge negative.

While the rumor mills have been abuzz with Lumia 930, the device is not likely to be launched this week. Microsoft might have decided to give the flagship, and therefore priced at a premium, device a skip.

Then there's Lumia 730, a successor of the very popular Lumia 720. Most sources have been tight-lipped over its launch. There's not been a shrug like that for the Lumia 930, or a nod like that for the Lumia 830. Maybe the device is announced to be made available a little later, or we are all surprised with the simultaneous launch of the phones. If Lumia 830 is priced at over ₹25,000, a sub-₹20,000 Lumia 730 would be a great alternative for customers looking for a mid-range dual SIM smartphone.

While no phone accessories will be announced (sad, I know), a nifty, utility device might just be launched. Also, while there will be no exclusive tie-up with any online retailer as is increasingly becoming a trend in India, there might be a special promotion in partnership with one. Anyway, I'll be there at the event and bring you all the updates from the ground, and we'll put all these rumors and uncertainties to rest. I'm definitely eyeing the Lumia 830 to replace my aging Lumia 920. What's your pick?
