The recently-launched Nokia Lumia 735 and Lumia 830 smartphones are headed to the U.S., as the company's website now lists them as "coming soon."
Microsoft-owned Nokia unveiled its latest devices at the IFA 2014 trade show, but it remained unclear just when or if the new Lumias will make their way to U.S. shores. While we still don't have a launch date for the handsets, we now have confirmation that the Lumia 735 and the Lumia 830 are indeed set to hit the U.S. as well.
The Lumia 730, which launched alongside the 735 and 830 models, doesn't seem to be in the cards for a U.S. launch, but that's understandable. This variant is virtually identical to the Lumia 735 in terms of specifications, but it comes with dual-SIM capabilities and HSPA+ connectivity instead of LTE.
Nokia has not made any official announcement yet regarding the devices' launch and availability stateside, but the Nokia U.S. website nonetheless lists both the Lumia 735 and Lumia 830 as "coming soon." The handsets are expected to hit the market by the end of the month.
The website offers no information as to which carriers will be offering the Lumia 735 and Lumia 830 smartphones, but subsidized options should be on the table. The handsets may also be available unlocked and contract-free from the Microsoft Store when they hit commercial availability.
As a reminder, the Nokia Lumia 735 joins the "Selfie Phone" trend with its 5-megapixel front shooter, but it has plenty of other good specs for its category. The smartphone further sports a 4.7-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage capacity, microSD support for additional memory, and a 6.7-megapixel rear camera to complement the 5-megapixel selfie cam. A 2,200 mAh battery will keep the show running, while Windows Phone 8.1 with the Lumia Denim update will rock the software side.
The Lumia 830, meanwhile, is marketed as the company's new affordable flagship, as well as the "thinnest and lightest" member of the Lumia family. The handset comes with a 5-inch display, a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage capacity, a 10-megapixel PureView rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics, and a 2,200 mAh battery.
