This morning, Microsoft announced the budget-friendly 'selfie' phone aka the Lumia 730 (dual SIM) and Lumia 735 (4G LTE single SIM). Selling for around 200 Euro later this month, the follow up to the Lumia 720 looks to be an impressive and fun Windows Phone.
Shipping with Lumia Denim and Windows Phone 8.1.1, the Lumia 730 features an impressive 5 MP front-facing camera in addition to a 6.7 MP rear camera with an ultra-low F/1.9 aperture. Our hands on video is coming up soon, but for now you can check out our photos!
For reference, we tossed in our yellow Lumia 720 for a comparison, which you can see below in some photos.
