Microsoft Devices Group reveals three new Lumia smartphones

Three new Nokia Lumia smartphones have been revealed at the IFA 2014 event in Berlin – all of which run on the latest Windows Phone 8.1 operating system.

The Lumia 830 is described by Microsoft as ‘the affordable flagship’, and offers high-quality images and videos with a 10-megapixel PureView camera with Zeiss optics, Rich Recording and the thinnest optical image stabilisation system to date on a Lumia smartphone.

This handset is also pre-loaded with Microsoft Office Mobile, the latest version of Windows Phone 8.1 with Lumia Denim, and OneDrive with 15GB of free storage. Other features include wireless charging.

The Lumia 730 Dual SIM and Lumia 735 both feature front-facing, wide-angle, five megapixel cameras, advancing the Skype video calling experience. Both devices feature a 2220mAh battery, 8GB of internal storage and 15GB of free OneDrive storage.

All three new devices will begin rolling out globally this month.

The Microsoft Devices Group also revealed two new additions to its Lumia accessories line.

The second-generation Wireless Charging Plate DT-903 offers a convenient way to charge devices, intelligently alerts people when to charge and will subtly glow when a notification is received.

Also, the Microsoft Screen-Sharing for Lumia Phones HD-10 means users can beam any content from their smartphone to an HDMI-enabled screen.

“Our strategy is to help people do more with stunning products that unite and showcase the best of Microsoft’s digital work and life experiences,” said Chris Weber, corporate vice president of Mobile Devices Sales at Microsoft. “The Lumia 830, Lumia 735 and Lumia 730 Dual SIM combine popular Microsoft services such as Skype, Microsoft Office and OneDrive with amazing Lumia innovations in design and imaging to bring experiences that people value, at prices they can afford.”
