Microsoft’s Lumia 830 and Lumia 930 available with Rs 7,000 cashback

Microsoft’s Lumia 830 and Lumia 930 available with Rs 7,000 cashback
Microsoft announced a new promotional offer for its premium Lumia handsets in India. The company brings ‘guaranteed cashback offers’ on the Lumia 930 and Lumia 830 smartphones. The offer is valid starting today and will last until the stocks last.
It’s a festive offer, especially launched for Holi. After the cashback, the Lumia 830 and Lumia 930 can be grabbed at discounted prices of Rs 21,800 and Rs 31,600 respectively.
Let’s quickly brush through the specs. The Lumia 830 sports a 5-inch ClearBlack display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It comes powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400 clocked at 1.2GHz and 1 GB RAM. There’s a 10MP main camera with 4K recording capability. Disappointingly, the front camera is a paltry 0.9 MP with 720p recording capability.
The Lumia 930 also features a 5-inch screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The phone is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 which is clocked at 2.2 GHz. It has 2 GB RAM and 32 GB total memory space, but no support for any extra storage. This smartphone has a 20MP PureView camera with 2x digital zoom and dual-LED flash. The front camera is 1.2 MP wide angle lens with a resolution of 1280 x 960 pixels. The battery capacity is 2,420mAh, which Microsoft claims can provide 17.9 hours of talktime on a 3G network.
Users can avail of the cashback via physical retail stores. However, it is still unclear whether the offer is valid only at official Microsoft stores or any store selling Microsoft Lumia 730 and Lumia 830. It is also unclear if the offer is valid on online stores.
