Lumia 730

In a press event in New Delhi, Microsoft announced the launch of Lumia 730 in India. Unveiled at the IFA 2014 in Berlin a while ago, the selfie-focused Lumia 730 is the dual SIM variant of the Lumia 735.

The Lumia 730 features a 4.7-inch 720p (1280 x 720) OLED ClearBlack display. Powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and 1 GB of RAM, the device packs in 8 GB of internal storage expandable up to 128GB using a microSD card. The phone features a removable battery, and changeable shells.

The rear camera is a 6.7 MP shooter with ZEISS optics and includes LED flash. The front camera, incidentally, is one of the best front-facing cameras on any smartphone (yes, call it a selfie phone) – a full HD 5 MP wide angle camera.

In India, the Lumia 730 will be available in orange, green, white, and dark grey colors at an MRP of ₹15,299 (US$250) starting from October 6. There's also 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage available free for first 6 months, and chargeable thereafter at a minimal ₹125 per month. The Lumia 730 is a great mid-range device at this price, and should find many takers. What are your thoughts on the device and the pricing?
