Microsoft Lumia 535 released in India, will also be available in the UK
Not long after announcing the Lumia 535 as its very first own-branded Windows Phone handset, Microsoft this week started selling the device (more exactly, its dual SIM variant) in India. As far as we know, this is the first market where the 535 becomes available.

If you’re in India, you can order a dual SIM Lumia 535 from Microsoft via the source link below. The smartphone costs $149 (9,199 INR), and for now it’s available in four color versions: black, white, green and orange.

Succeeding the Nokia Lumia 530, the Microsoft Lumia 535 runs Windows Phone 8.1, thus offering stuff like Microsoft Office, Cortana, OneNote, Skype, and 15 GB of free OneDrive storage space. Technical specs include a 5-inch display with 540 x 960 pixels, 5 MP cameras (both on the back, and at the front), quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 200 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 1905 mAh battery.

While it’s targeted mainly at emerging markets, the Lumia 535 will also be released in the UK. Microsoft UK’s website lists the handset as “coming soon”, but doesn’t say how much it’s going to cost there.
