With a wide angle front facing camera, affordable price tag, and sleek, pocketable style featured alongside integrated Microsoft experiences, Lumia 730 lets people easily capture and share more of what they want.
The Lumia 730 combines a slim, vibrant style with powerful performance to create an uncompromised smartphone experience. Alongside Dual SIM 3G support, the Lumia 730 provides outstanding personalization brought by Windows Phone 8.1 to deliver memorable Skype video calls with the wide-angle front-facing camera.

With a focal length of 24mm, Lumia 730 front facing camera captures more of the scene, ensuring people never cut out another member of the group or miss an unbelievable background during a selfie.
“People are moving from using their front facing camera to take a close up selfie or have a solo Skype call, to making it much more about where they are and what they are doing.” said James Rutherfoord, Vice President, Microsoft Devices North Africa, Levant and Near East. “With the Lumia 730, we’re enabling people to easily capture and share more of what they want through unique Lumia innovation and the best Microsoft experiences.”
