Rebranding much? Nokia by Microsoft, spotted on a possible Lumia 830

Curious about Nokia’s plans for the next months?
According to the latest rumors, the next months will be pretty busy for the Finnish manufacturer Nokia. More sources are claiming that thee devices, a low-end one, codenamed Rock, a mid-ranger, codenamed Superman and a high-end one, codenamed McLaren are in the works and the company will schedule a big event to introduce them.
Still, as interesting as three new phones might sound, a recent leak caught our attention. Another mid-range phone, apparently called Lumia 830, the 2012 Lumia 820’s successor, revealed the first effect of Microsoft’s acquisition of Nokia.
On what seems to be a render of the above mentioned Lumia 830, we can see the new branding, Nokia by Microsoft. A few days ago, it was rumored that something like this would happen, and the image confirms this.
Could this be just the beginning and in a few years Microsoft will totally ditch the Nokia brand? Less likely. We see this move very similar to what Google did with the first Android phones, who were sporting the “with Google” brand on the back covers.
As for the Lumia 830, we can tell from the leak that it’s going to have a 13 MP camera, with Carl Zeiss Optics and a display of about 4.5 inches. Everything else remains a mystery.
Stay tuned, as we’ll be back with more details about this topic as soon as anything new comes up.
