Bringing flagship innovation like superior PureView imaging technology to more people, the Lumia 830 will go on sale this week.

Inside the slim and lightweight metal and polycarbonate shell of the Lumia 830, you’ll find a wealth of innovation seen on high end models. There’s a 10-megapixel PureView camera with ZEISS optics, Rich Recording, and our thinnest Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) system to date.

Altogether, this ultra-sleek package of photo-smarts will see you taking sharper, more detailed photos then ever before, day or night.

Capturing photos or recording videos is only half the fun; it’s always better when you share them with friends. For that, Instagram, Vimeo or Vine can be downloaded from the Windows Phone Store. Alternatively, why not take advantage of the free 15GB OneDrive cloud storage and share a secure link to your content?

OneDrive needn’t be solely used for your photos or videos, though. With Microsoft Office already preinstalled onto every Windows Phone, you can create or edit Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents on your Lumia 830 and store them to OneDrive – accessible from anywhere.

At the heart of the Lumia 830 sits a powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 400 processor, featuring quad-core CPUs at 1.2 GHz. But it’s not this alone that gives for a smooth experience; the latest OS also has a part to play.

The Lumia 830 comes loaded with Windows Phone 8.1 and the Lumia Denim Update, providing faster connections to everything that matters with Action Center, Live Tiles, Word Flow, Microsoft Office, Cortana and a whole lot more.

With a 5-inch ClearBlack display, everything you see on the screen, whether it’s flicking your way through Flipboard, reliving precious moments with Storyteller, or gaming, is beautiful and sharp. With winter approaching for many, you’ll be delighted to know its super sensitive touch screen means you can operate the phone with your gloves still on.

Onboard the Lumia 830 packs in the SensorCore, a low-powered motion sensor that tracks motion and location to help you make the most out of your days with apps like Bing Health and Fitness, Adidas, and RollerBlade Inline Skates.

The Lumia 830 houses a powerful 2200mAh battery that can be charged wirelessly.
