Nokia Lumia 830 With PureView Technology Looks Set for IFA Unveil

Nokia’s PureView technology will make an appearance in the company’s Lumia 830, which you can peer in the pictures above. Many expect the device to make an appearance at Microsoft’s upcoming IFA presentation on Sept. 4, and it looks like that might hold true with units already escaping into the wild. Nokia is also expected to unveil its upcoming Lumia 730 “selfie phone” at the same event, so it sure looks like the company will put a lot of focus on cameras once again.

One observation of these photos: the three pictures of the different colors look identical, as though someone just shopped the phones to look yellow, orange and green, so that’s something to consider. The device could very well show up in numerous colors when it becomes official next month.

The Lumia 830 is rumored to be a mid-range device, though only some vague and generic specs are known at this point; 4.5-inch screen (unknown resolution), Snapdragon processor, LTE support, and so on and so forth. From an appearance standpoint, it doesn’t look all that exceptional, though the addition of PureView will no doubt attract a few folks. Nokia’s Lumia 1020, which sports a 41-megapixel sensor, is still one of the best around, so it would be great to see something of similar caliber.

However, this being a mid-range device, the camera might not necessarily be quite as advanced, so it could just be along the lines of what we saw in the Lumia 930 (or the Lumia Icon), which came equipped with a 20-megapixel PureView camera. We’ll get all the details early next month, but it sounds like Nokia will mostly definitely hit us with more PureView goodness soon.
