Lumia 735: On sale now

Add more spark and color to your life with the ultimate selfie and Skype smartphone, the Lumia 735.

With its wide-angle front-facing camera, this smartphone lets you share life’s precious moments “uncropped.” Now capture more of you, more scenery and more detailing in your photos.

The sleek Skype-and-selfie-toting Lumia 735 fits snugly in your pocket and promises an uncompromised smartphone experience with an affordable price tag.

The phone’s camera sports a powerful full high-definition 5MP wide-angle front-facing camera with a focal length of 24mm, giving you more reason to fit more people and that extra something in your photos. The pre-loaded Lumia Selfie app also helps you take unique selfies.

If you thought the front-facing camera was only meant for taking great selfies or group photos, we recommend that you give Skype a shot. Not only can you share more of your surroundings, you can also bring your family or friends into the same call, adding variety to those long-distance catch-ups.

Powering the Lumia 735 is a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor that ensures you get a fast, smooth and personalized Windows Phone 8.1 experience.
