Software company Microsoft is adding wireless charging capability, LTE connectivity, and NFC support to the upcoming Nokia Lumia 730 model. The smartphone is expected to roll out at the IFA event in Berlin this coming September 4, together with the Lumia 830.

The Nokia Lumia 730 is the manufacturer's highly anticipated phone after the transition to become part of Microsoft. The new Windows Phone is said to feature 4G LTE connectivity, Qi Wireless charging, microSD card support, and Nano SIM among others, according to a recent Lumia 730 certification spotted at the FCC. Phone model has an RM-1038 reference.

Measuring only 134.7 x 68.5 mm, the Lumia 730 phone is also expected to have a 4.7-inch display screen with 720p resolution, an 8 megapixel main camera, a 5 megapixel front-facing camera, an FM radio, 1GB RAM, 8GB built-in storage, and a Snapdragon 400 processor. No details on the pricing but the new Lumia phone could be priced at $240 which makes it affordable. A sub $300 price for a smartphone is affordable enough.

The Lumia 730 is known, as early as now, as a 'selfie' special smartphone. Making this one more interesting though are its Qi Wireless charging and the super fast 4G LTE support which will still depend on the mobile network.

Apart from the Lumia 730 model, Nokia is rumored to be showcasing the Windows Phone 8.1-running Lumia 830 phone complete with an impressive 20 megapixel PureView rear camera, a 4.5-inch 720p display screen, Nano SIM, microSD card slot, 16GB built-in storage, and an unnamed Snapdragon processor.

The Lumia 830 and Lumia 730 are two of Nokia's upcoming Windows Phone products. These mid-range smartphones will be added to Nokia's current lineup of Windows-Phone powered devices.

Microsoft has yet to make a formal announcement but the public should be able to get their hands on the smartphones in September.

Nokia also better advertise these new smartphones well so the company could keep up with Android and iOS. If not, then Microsoft would have to prepare and think hard about how to keep Windows Phone significant in the mobile industry.
