Geeks, another fine product of mobile tech innovation has landed on our shores. We introduce you to the fresh na fresh Lumia 830!

"Wait, isn't it supposed to be called the Nokia Lumia 830?"

Well...sort of. Our PR contact for Nokia told us to call the handset simply as Lumia 830 "for now" even if it has the Nokia branding on it. Confused? This might be the answer: if you've been tuning in to the latest happenings in gadget land, you'll know that Microsoft has dropped the Nokia brand name. We saw this coming a mile away after the Big M's mega-buck acquisition of Nokia's phone-making division last year. So there, a possible explanation! #SigeNaNga

Anyway, let's shine the spotlight again on the Lumia 830. It's being dubbed as a flagship phone which means it's definitely packin' in the hardware department. Sounds good!

Here, another look:

First things first: the Lumia 830 is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor which is paired with 1GB of RAM. That's definitely more than enough for your everyday smartphone sessions, especially if it consists mainly of finger-mashing with Angry Birds or making pa-cute via Instagram.

Speaking of Instagram, you know if your selfie is now brag-worthy with the Lumia 830's large 5-inch HD display. We're also told that it comes with what is called ClearBlack display, a feature that delivers deeper, more realistic blacks. Better hide your blackheads then, boys and girls!

16GB of storage is also part of the mix, and if the digital packrat in you says "Kulang!" you'll be pleased that it also has free 15GB of online cloud storage via OneDrive. Now you can access videos of your hump sessions your files using the Lumia 830 anywhere and anytime as long as you have a stable online connection. This bad boy's also on the 4G bandwagon so it can access the Internet at blazing speeds (20 to 40Mbps or even beyond) that will make your home connection go green with envy.

Last but not the least of the Lumia 830's noteworthy features is its 10-megapixel main camera. Sure, other superphones have more MPs, but as we've said in the past, the megapixel count is overrated. Plus, the shooter on this thing sports PureView tech, a feature that's popular inside geek circles for delivering better, more detailed photos that can rival those shot with a conventional camera. Want more proof? Here's our shoot-out between another PureView-packing phone and a digital camera.


But perhaps the most interesting bit about the Lumia 830 is its SRP. Despite being labelled as a flagship phone, it's definitely cheaper than others sporting the same tag (a.k.a. handsets that are normally priced between P25,000 to P35,000). At P18,990, it will definitely have followers screaming, "Bargain! Bargain!"
