With the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Lumia 820 officially showcased at the Windows Phone 8 launch, all eyes are on Nokia to see the other Windows Phone 8 handsets it has up its sleeve. We now have a glimpse of the upcoming Lumia 830. As per a report by WPCentral, the website has come across a handful of images at the Chinese website WPDang, in which we can see the hierarchy of the Windows Phone line up.
Going by its name, one may think that the Nokia Lumia 830 may feature higher specifications than the Lumia 820. However, the report states that this is not the case, and the Lumia 820 is positioned just above the Lumia 830.
Available in five colours and runs on the Windows Phone 8 platform
