Nokia Lumia 830 launched for Rs 28,799 in India from October 8

By October 1st, 2014 AT 3:24 PM

Nokia (or should we say Microsoft) is on a launch spree in India. After launching the Lumia 730 at a press event today, Nokia has also announced the Lumia 830 in India at a price of Rs. 28,799. The smartphone has been positioned as a premium mid-ranger and will have quite an uphill task of making a mark for itself. Although there was a report claiming that it will be priced at Rs. 26,000, Microsoft has actually priced it even higher even though it comes with hardware specifications which are in sub Rs. 15,000 range other than the camera and display.

It will become available starting October 8th but seeing the fact that isn’t exactly a value for money device, it will surely find it a bit difficult to make a mark for itself.

Snapdeal will offer a minimum of Rs. 6,000 off for consumers shopping through the Snapdeal app on Windows Phone. Buyers of the Lumia 830 will also get a minimum discount of Rs. 1,000 per month if they spend Rs. 2,100 on fashion or home décor items. Also, BoxTV, a local movie streaming service will offer a 60-day subscription to the Lumia 830 customers for free.
