Microsoft Lumia 535 officially announced, will be launched this month at an affordable price
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.
