Behold Microsoft's "selfie" phone. Windows Phone Central has published images of what's believed to be Nokia's Lumia 730, one of two devices The Verge reported on late last month. The pictures show off a bright green color that's by now familiar to Nokia fans, and the overall design seems to position this as a mid-range successor to last year's Lumia 720. Microsoft devices chief Stephen Elop recently revealed the 730, codenamed "Superman," and another upcoming Windows Phone during an internal company meeting.

This particular device is referred to as the "selfie" phone thanks to its 5-megapixel front camera. (Other phones also have a 5MP camera up front, but we'll reserve judgement until we see what this one can do.) The Lumia 730 is expected to feature a 4.7-inch display, and these photos show it running an upcoming Nokia firmware update that, at least for right now, is codenamed "Debian Red." Exact release dates for Nokia's product pipeline aren't yet known, but fresh competition is right around the corner.
