The Nokia Lumia 730 is equipped with a Full-HD 5-megapixel wide-angle front-facing camera that has an impressive 24mm focal length.

The rumors were spot on. Microsoft's reported 'selfie phone' is here and it's called the Nokia Lumia 730. So, why is it called the "selfie phone?" For starters, the Nokia Lumia 730 is equipped with a Full-HD 5-megapixel wide-angle front-facing camera that has an impressive 24mm focal length. The result is a powerful camera that is designed to capture candid group snaps of your friends and family.

Another reason it's called such is its deep integration with Skype, Microsoft's own VoIP and messaging platform. Then, there's also a new Lumia Selfie app pre-loaded into the device. Users will get a free three-month Sype Unlimited World subscription.

Let's get to the specs. The Lumia 730 dons a 4.7-inch OLED display, a 1.2GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard memory, a 6.7-megapixel rear camera, and a 2220mAh battery. Good news: there's support for up to 128GB of external storage via microSD and 15GB of free OneDrive storage. And oh, did we mention that the Lumia 730 is dual-SIM, too? Available in white, green, orange, and dark grey, the phone will hit the market this month at 199 euros.
