Microsoft announces the Lumia 540 Dual SIM - $149 WP8.1 trooper with a 5MP wide-angle selfie camera
Yes, we're still waiting for a new Microsoft flagship, but Redmond's just-announced new device is certainly not the device many fans are patiently waiting for. The company's newest device is the Nokia Lumia 540 Dual SIM, a quite affordable handset boasting specs that are almost on par with another recent entrant, the Lumia 640

As such, the Nokia Lumia 540 Dual SIM comes with a 5" display that has an resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, making up for a pixel density of 294ppi, while a quad-core Snapdragon 200 is humming inside the phone at 1.2GHz. The SoC is paired with 1GB of RAM and has 8 gigs of native storage from the get-go. You also get a microSD card slot and up to 30GB of cloud-based storage with Microsoft's OneDrive. 

The Lumia 540 Dual SIM is equipped with an 8MP rear camera that comes with a LED flash and auto focus, while the front-facing shooter is a 5MP wide-angle one. The battery powering this Windows Phone trooper is a removable 2,200mAh one. Speaking of Windows Phone, the Lumia 540 is running on Windows Phone 8.1 with most recent update Lumia Denim update. It will be eligible for the Windows 10 update later this year.

The handset will command a suggested retail price of $149 and will be available in a handful of regions - India, the Middle East, Africa, and in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as Italy sometime in early May 2015. It will be available in a handful of colors - "glossy layered" cyan, orange, white, and black.
