Microsoft on Wednesday officially announced the latest member of the Lumia Windows Phone family, the Lumia 530. The device runs Windows Phone 8.1, the very latest version of Windows Phone that just started rolling out, but comes at a highly affordable off-contract price.
The Lumia 530 is equipped with a 4-inch 854 x 480-pixel display, a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage that can be expanded with up to a 128GB microSD card, 15GB of free OneDrive storage, and a 5-megapixel camera. It will be sold in single and dual-SIM SKUs, though it does not support 4G LTE networks.
The Lumia 530 with a single SIM is expected to cost just €85 when it launches in August, while the dual-SIM model will set you back €100 (approx. $134 USD). T-Mobile confirmed Wednesday that it will sell the Lumia 530 “later this year,” but did not provide any insight on pricing.
