Microsoft Lumia 535 officially announced, will be launched this month at an affordable price
Microsoft just announced its very first own-branded Lumia smartphone (and the first to drop the Nokia brand): the Lumia 535 - which we’ve seen a few times just days ago. Running Windows Phone 8.1 with the latest Lumia Denim update, the Lumia 535 will be available in single-SIM and dual-SIM variants starting later this month.

The new Lumia is here to bring "free integrated Microsoft experiences" to customers who can’t afford expensive smartphones. As previously reported, the 535 doesn’t offer high-end specs, but it’s certainly a step up from the slightly older Lumia 530.

Powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 200 processor, the Lumia 535 features a 5-inch IPS display with 540 x 960 pixels, HSDPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 1905 mAh battery. On the back, the Lumia 535 has a 5 MP camera with LED flash, while its front-facing shooter is the same 5 MP one that we can find on the selfie-centric Lumia 730 / 735. The new handset weighs 146 grams, and measures 140.2 x 72.4 x 8.8 mm (thus being almost as thin as the 8.5 mm Lumia 830, which is the thinnest Lumia ever). Microsoft Office, Skype, OneNote, Cortana (where available), and 15 GB of OneDrive storage space are all part of the package.

The Microsoft Lumia 535 has no less than six color versions: white, black, cyan, bright orange, bright green, and dark grey. What about the price? Well, the Lumia 535 will be sold for an estimated retail price of €110 before taxes and subsidies. China, Hong Kong and Bangladesh will be the first countries to get the handset, with other (unspecified) markets to follow.

Check out the Lumia 535 below (photos and video), and let us know if this is the Microsoft smartphone that you’ve been expecting.

You are right about the ugly microbitch logo ... But Nokia will be back very soon. Wait for the big surprise this Nov, 17th.

oh no, they will not be missed, a symbol of failure and inability to progress .. when I first saw the Microsoft logo on it, I said finally I can get a Lumia without being embarrassed

Yes, I remember when NOKIA was trying to impose is own bluetooth standard and I couldn't connect my NOKIA with anything. I still loathe them for that. Glad to see their logo gone.

Nokia won't be missed?! Guess you aren't aware of the brand value of Nokia in these parts of the world.

"...finally I can get a Lumia without being embarrassed" In your own mind, maybe...

yeah, if I just know how to make renders, I would just have put the modern Windows Logo in front like the prof. pic of itsdeepak4u2000. and put it on the top left corner like xiaomi, and MS at the back. simplicity is much more elegant looking, like a simple brand name "nokia" "sony" and yes, logo of "apple" they look elegant for me, even they are so simple. :)

More of the same.

I am fine with the logo, not liking the Lumia designs since the Lumia 800 though. That was the only sexy looking one. The HTC 8x looked good too but that's not a Lumia.

You're correct. Nothing can beat 8X ,except M8 Windows. 8X is so good to hold in the hand.

For me white 920 and 1020 are sexiest phones ever made. 925 is also beautiful

My 620 was beautiful, especially with the "Nokia" logo small in the upper right corner and no carrier branding. If only WP would have had more apps that my iPad and SIII had, I'd still be using it...

so you would like the lumia 730?

This is what 630 should have been.

*530.

you want ms to downgrade 630 from sd400 to sd200?

35. dexter_jdr

Posts: 1163; Member since: Jun 28, 2012

can you even tell the difference between SD400 and SD200 on a windows phone?

Now that's nice. This is very much what I expect from an affordable phone. Snapdragon 200 isn't bad, and with 1gb of ram, the phone will perform fine. And the same front camera as on the Lumia 730/735? Heck yeah, that sounds awesome to me. 5" 540p is not too bad especially when the phone is priced like that. I got an LG Optimus L90 with 4.7" screen at 540p and it looks beautiful. The Lumia 635 also looks quite nice even at 480p. Hope this thing comes to the US and supports T-mobile 4g bands.

Sadly no 4G.

10. hurrycanger

Posts: 1765; Member since: Dec 01, 2013

oh wait... craps... -__- Thanks for pointing out, man. I wonder how fast this 3g can get though. I mean, if the download speed is 5 mbps and up speed is around 1-2 mbps, it will be okay. The phone seems quite appealing to me.

Posts: 1121; Member since: Jan 10, 2014

Agree. I was just thinking why they went with 200 when SD 210 is here.It's a lot better than 200! FHD recording and playback and supports 4G too.

Yeah that would be nice. Anything faster is welcomed. xD

Snapdragon 210 devices won't be released until the first half of 2015 according to Qualcomm, so putting it in this device was never an option. I would imagine we'll see it in the 540/545 next year though.

What the Nokia Lumia 630 should have been from the start

14. DogeShibe

*530. 630 is fine man. Just the ram is 512mb.

But the lack of FFC and flash might be a deal breaker for some. The Lumia 630 comes with a faster Snapdragon 400 though.
