Microsoft Lumia 435 confirmed by Brazilian agency

Microsoft Lumia 435 confirmed by Brazilian agency
Last month, we told you that the Microsoft Lumia 435 had visited the FCC. We gave you some information about the specs, and even showed you a leaked photo of the device. Now comes word that the Lumia 435 has been certified by Brazil's Anatel, which is the country's equivalent to the FCC. With the FCC and Anatel both certifying the device, it shouldn't be too long before it is unveiled by Microsoft. Microsoft requested short-term confidentiality so that Anatel can't release any pictures of the device until January 30th. That also is a sign that the handset will soon be revealed.

With the sub 5xx model number, this is an entry-level handset. The Microsoft Lumia 435 carries a 4-inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 800. A Snapdragon 200 CPU powers the device, which features a 5MP rear-facing camera. A device-exclusive BV-5J battery keeps the lights on.

The Microsoft Lumia 435, which will carry a model number of RM-1068, supports dual SIM cards. The phone will offer 3G connectivity. When the phone was shipped into India for inter-company use in November, it was valued at $57 for each unit. If the Lumia 435 is launched at that price, it would be the cheapest Lumia model yet.

Until there's hardware to launch one ( S810 ) Launching a new phone with basically the same hardware just for "new phone sake" its idiotic IMO

My guess is in the spring, or there may be something to that next event. Until then the M8 is available..

$57???? Great price tag but only for US like countries I guess. It'll be priced much higher in my country, India.

So LetsBeRealistic too. Even at 47$ it will not sell in India.

The 435 is running with a dual core SD 200 CPU which is a cortex-A7. The 520 is using a dual core 1ghz SD S4 which is a cortex-A9. A9 arm processors have better caching and overall run faster then A7 processors, by up to 30%. However with that said if this SD 200 is running at 1.2ghz, then it could make up for some speed, but then ram speeds come into play as well. The display is the same resolution. Everyone knows that the 520 camera was only 5mp with no camera flash, and no front facing camera for selfies. Who knows if this one will be the same. Most likely it will be at that price.
