Lumia 830 gets pictured in official government certification


The various government agencies around the world that certify electronics for operation within their respective borders can be a smartphone fan’s best friends. When we’re tracking a new model, after months and months of rumors and unverifiable leaks, agencies like the FCC or China’s TENAA often bring us the first really confirmed information about new phones. Sure, sometimes we don’t get more than a list of bands, or maybe a wireframe outline and some measurements, but occasionally we really strike gold. That’s the situation we find ourselves in today, as a Brazilian regulatory body checks out the Nokia Lumia 830, sharing a bunch of pics in the process.

We’ve seen images of the 830 before, but with a bunch of very sketchy, Photoshopped-looking new pics surfacing over the last couple weeks, it’s reassuring to return to some shots of the phone we can unquestionably trust.

Microsoft’s IFA event is coming up on September 4, and the 830 making its debut there is almost a certainty by this point; Microsoft even seems to have featured the phone’s unusually pronounced camera in its invitation for the IFA announcement. There, we expect to see it joined by the Lumia 730, and maybe even a few new Windows Phone devices that have managed to keep lower profiles. We’ll know for sure in under two weeks.
