Recently, Lumia 830 passed through a Brazilian certification body with a model number RM-985, rumored to be the upcoming Lumia 830. The certification documents are also accompanied by a number of photos, giving us a glimpse of what the device may look like -- something we already know. 

As per Anatel documents, the purported handset measures 139.4 mm x 70.7 mm x 8.5 mm, making it thinner than a number of Lumia handsets. Additionally, there will be a removable battery and back cover, microSD card slot, and physical navigation buttons which are usually present in most Windows Phone handsets.
