Nokia Lumia 530 allegedly photographed in the wild

The Lumia 530 will most likely become the cheapest Windows Phone 8.1 handset on the market. There's still no word on when it's going to be announced...

The 630 uses onscreen buttons, so why not the 530?

yes. this will be real. even though it is chubby looking compared to the other 5xx 6xx models, it will still be the cheapest one yet.

I have the 520 but this thing looks really cheap. It seems they likely lost a fair bit of money on the 520 as it's still better than the 635 and this apparent 530. The 520 will go down as the total gem of smartphones for years.

I like the design better than the 520/521. The corners and front edges of the 520/521 are just so uncomfortable in the hand. This seems to be better for handling.
Anyway, the 635 is even better, so I don't get any tiny bit excited for this one.

One complain about this though: the speaker hole!!! I mean... seriously??? Hope it's fake. xD

Forgot the L630 got the same speaker hole... -_-
Anyway, it just looks... wrong on this one. It seems okay on the 630.

Microsoft appears to be focusing on making cheap phones, trying to build share on the rapidly expanding low end of the market, where Android is currently the champ. It'll be interesting to see who is more successful.

Snapdragon 200 ¿ARM cortex A7? and 512MB ram?

Lumia 525 has S4 play Dual core Krait and 1GB ram, dedicated camera button, capacitive buttons.

Lumia 630 should have had: 1GB ram, qHD, flash and front dfacing camera, to leave 530 with that specs.

They seem to comete with moto E and Moto G in a strange way...

Lets hope to see Lumia 730 with Snapdragon 400, 1GB ram, HD screen, Carl zeiss camera...

your speculations are just right. for 730 atleast. who knows, it might get snapdragon600 instead.

for me its:
snapdragon200 for lumia 530.
snapdragon400 for lumia 630.
snapdragon4/600 for lumia 730 - slim phone.
snapdragon600 for lumia 830 - 1gb ram.
snapdragon 805/810 for lumia 1030
