In September 2014, Microsoft first announced the Lumia 830 at the IFA trade show in Berlin. The phone officially went on sale in October. Now it appears that Microsoft is slowly retiring the 5-inch Windows Phone device in its retail stores, 10 months after it first launched.
According to what a source told WMPowerUser, the unlocked Lumia 830 has officially reached its "End of Life" (EOL) status, which means no more units will be made and the current inventory will not be replenished. Once that happens. demo units of the phone will be removed from display at Microsoft's retail stores, in favor of the Lumia 735 in the US and the Lumia 640 XL in Canada.
The Lumia 830 has a 5-inch 720p display, a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage, along with a microSD card slot for adding up to 128GB of additional storage. It also had a 10MP PureView rear camera, a 0.9 MP front-facing camera, and a 2200 mAh battery. While Microsoft was very high on the smartphone when it was first revealed, the truth was that the Lumia 830 never really caught on as a so called "affordable flagship". Hopefully the company will have more luck with some real flagship smartphones that the company could release later this fall with Windows 10 Mobile.
