New Nokia Lumia 530 with Windows Phone 8.1 allegedly pictured

It seems that we can now take a look (for the very first time) at the unannounced Nokia Lumia 530 - a new handset that’s supposed to arrive later this year as the successor to the Lumia 520 and Lumia 525.

Reportedly, GeekOnGadgets found this low-res image of the Lumia 530 (seen above) in “a guide displaying the available WP 8.1 devices.” The image is showing the new device next to the Lumia 930 and Lumia 635. The 530 has a display that’s a bit smaller than the 4.5-inch screen of the Lumia 630, most likely measuring 4.3 inches. Other than that, there aren’t too many details about the 530. However, we can safely assume that this will be an affordable, entry-level smartphone.

Like the Lumia 635, the 530 runs Windows Phone 8.1 - and we can see that it has on-screen keys, instead of hardware buttons.

While there is no word on when Microsoft (which now owns Nokia’s Devices and Services unit) intends to release the Lumia 530, we know that the handset is supposed to be available in the US via T-Mobile. Let's hope we'll hear more on this soon.

They need to get rid of the low resolution 800x480 or 854x480. Don't use that really low resolution any more.

I don't think it's good. The edges in the front and the corners on the 520 made it a pain to use with one hand. There was no grip on the 520. The corners on this 530 seems better, and I hope the front isn't as edgy as the 520.

So... bezels are inversely proportional to price?

I know but the 530 looks extremely bad... like a 1st Gen iPhone...

The L630/635 only barely better than L620/625 and even L520/525, l wonder about L530.

The new Nokia 530 must have 1 gig of ram so that it will be able to use all the apps in the Windows phone 8.1 store. it has been reported that the Nokia Lumia 520 could not use some apps in the Windows 8.1 phone store because it only had 525 megs of ram. It would be nice if it could get a 720 screen but most Windows phone 8 entry level economy smart phones do not get a 720p screen which in another 6 months should get cheaper because of the screens coming out that have a resolution higher than 1080p.

Then it would make Lumia 630/635 and the rest of 512mb WP owners envy, just what exactly happened when the Lumia 525 was released.

PS: Look for Microsoft to drop the Nokia brand name in about a year and just have Lumia smart phones names like- Lumia "Aroara"- smart phone ect.
