Microsoft has just announced a new edition of its current flagship devices, the Lumia 930, and the “affordable flagship” Lumia 830. Both of these smartphones will feature an anodised gold colour which seems to only apply to the frame of the phone, which is a rather small aesthetic change for a new variant.
Other than the gold anodised frame of the phones, the internals are still the same. The bigger and faster Lumia 930 features a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, a quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of non-expandable internal storage, a 2420mAh battery, and a 20MP f/2.4 Carl Zeiss lens rear camera.
The Lumia 830, which is the smaller, more affordable “flagship” device from Microsoft has a 5-inch 720p ClearBlack IPS display with Gorilla Glass 3, a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with support up to 128GB microSD card, a 2200mAh battery, and a 10MP camera f/2.2 Carl Zeiss lens rear camera.
The gold Lumia 930 will only be available in black while the 830 will be available in black and white. Retail price of both phones will vary by region and operator, and it will be sold in selected countries in Europe, Asia Pacific, China, Middle East, and Africa, while India will only receive the Lumia 830.
