Microsoft is reportedly in the works of the Nokia Lumia 840 which might replace its predecessor Nokia Lumia 830 which was launched in 2014 alongside the Nokia Lumia 730.

It has been announced that in some countries, like India, the Nokia Lumia 830 will be succeeded by the Lumia 840 once the existing stock of the former is sold out. The Lumia 830 will then be phased out completely and will no longer be replenished. Microsoft will also release the Nokia Lumia 840 pretty soon to the local market.

The Nokia Lumia 830 had features such as photo editing, panaroma, document viewing, face detection etc. Now Microsoft is apparently aiming to build an upgraded version of Lumia 830 by improving these core applications. Recently the phone division has seen some success under Satya Nadella, and is expecting it grow over the period with their line of products.

Along with Lumia 840, Microsoft is also rumored to launch a host of devices like the Lumia 940, the Lumia 940 XL and the Lumia 740 XL. According to reports, the Lumia 940 and the Lumia 940 XL are considered as Windows 10 flagship devices. As far as the Lumia 840 is concerned, it is expected to come with Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2.

According to reports, the Lumia 840 features a 5-inch screen. However, the screen resolution of the device has not been disclosed. The predecessor Lumia 830’s 5-inch screen supported HD resolution. There is no clarity whether the Lumia 840 will sport the same HD resolution or come with support for full HD resolution. The device also comes with a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU and Adreno 305 GPU and will be a dual SIM handset.

The Lumia 830 featured a 10 MP rear camera. However, the new Lumia 840 model is expected to come with 13-14 MP PureView technology enabled rear camera along with 5 MP selfie camera sitting at the front side of the device. The design is similar or will be slightly modified to the Lumia 830.

Currently, there is no information as to when the Nokia Lumia 840 will be officially announced. However, reports state that the phone will carry a midrange price tag and will be launched in the coming months. Aside from the Nokia Lumia 840, it’s been speculated that there will be another mid-range Lumia model to come. It is said that this model would feature a larger screen than the Nokia Lumia 840.
