Microsoft is all set to unveil a new Lumia device (or possibly two) in an event scheduled on 4th of Sept. The devices are hinted to be camera centric and the two names that come to fore are Lumia 730 (Nokia Superman) and Lumia 830 (Nokia Tesla). While Lumia 730 is almost confirmed to be unveiled, there is a good possibility of Lumia 830 also making an appearance.
The specs of both the devices have leaked earlier partially with a lot more known about Lumia 730 and the latest FCC filing of a device with Model Code RM-1038 (which is Lumia 730) reveals the possible presence of Wireless charging, Micr0-SD support (see image below) and Nano SIM (see image below). The filing also reveals the dimesions of the device to be 134.7 x 68.5 mm.
There are two states you will find a company or a developer in, one being struggling and the other being already popular or a hit. Blackberry falls in to the former category much like what Nokia was in and such companies are always hard at work, wanting for more. The outcome of this when it comes to app development is frequent improvements, customer requirements at the core, strong focus on UI and UX and thus excellent apps.
Update – Sorry for making you curious but we might have misread the tweet which says ‘Developer devices’ and not ‘Developer Preview devices’ – both of which are different. However the unanswered point at this moment is when a Developer Preview (Developer device running the Preview version) running device can get Cyan then either the fix is in place or MS/Nokia can segregate Developer devices from Non-developer ones. We will update the story on firm confirmation. Thanks Daniel (from WPC) for highlighting this out!
Update 1 – Ok, it can also be this way that Developer devices running Lumia Black are getting the Cyan update and those running the Develper Preview are not. But don’t that defeat the purpose, when a Developer device is not running the Developer Preview version?
In all take it as a No, the Developer Preview devices are not getting the Lumia Cyan update at this moment atleast.
Good news incoming, the Nokia Developer Team over twitter has announced that Lumia Cyan update is now rolling out to Lumia 920 Developer Preview devices.
