While Windows Phone is desperately needing some high-end Windows Phone, Nokia and Microsoft seem to be focusing more on the mid-to-low-end devices. First, we see the global release of the Lumia 630 and 635, and then the Lumia 530. We also see some leaks of the mid-ranger Lumia 830. Today, we see some leaks of the Lumia 730 with some new software.
Now, we are familiar with the two code name “Tesla” and “Superman,” although what is the model of these two handsets is still unclear. There has been some rumors that the leaked of the Lumia 830 is the mystery “Tesla”, but what about “Superman?” Well, we are about to find out, as some pictures were obtained and released by WP Central. Back in early 2013, the Lumia 720 is one of the most popular mid-range Windows Phone beside the 620 and 520. And it looks like Nokia wants to follow that up with the Lumia 730, which will also be the “selfie phone” that Stephen Elop mentioned about. The phone rumored to have a 4.7-inch display and a 5MP front-facing camera, as well as on-screen navigation buttons. Once again, we see the absence of hardware camera buttons on mid-range Lumia device.
We also see new software for Windows Phone, as follows the alphabet, with “A” being Lumia Amber, “B” being Lumia Black (codenamed Bittersweet Shimmer), and “C” being Lumia Cyan (codenamed Cherry Blossom Pink), the new software for Lumia line, with this rule, will inevitably be something starts with D (beside the Lumia, of course), and in this case, Debian Red. As of right now, it is unclear what will be included in this new software update, but stay tuned, as I will continue to report as the story continue to develop.

[…] then again, it is better to have something rather than nothing at all. Yesterday, I reported from WP Central about a new Lumia 730, with pictures and what we can get from them. So far, it seems to be quite a mid-ranger. But without specification, it is hard to piece […]
[…] A lot of news outlets have received invitation to “save the date” for their IFA event in Germany, September the fourth, and indeed this will be for “more” device, as you can see from the familiar camera lens that has been leaked a few weeks ago, known as the Tesla or the Lumia 830, which were expected to be an affordable high-end phone. Also, the invitation mentions “more face time,” which can be a hint of the selfie phone, the Lumia 730, which has been reported by WP Central to have a 5MP front facing camera. […]
