Nokia Lumia 530 launches in India
Earlier this month, we told you that the Nokia Lumia 530 would launch in India during the third week of August. It seems that the timetable has been moved up, and the cheapest Windows Phone 8.1 model can now be yours in India.for 7199 rupees ($117 USD). A dual SIM model will run you 7349 rupees ($120 USD). This is the sequel to the Nokia Lumia 520, the most popular Windows Phone of all time, and the Nokia Lumia 525, which shared specs with the Lumia 520, and had twice the RAM.

So just what are you getting for your rupees? The device comes with a 4 inch LCD screen with resolution of 480 x 854. That works out to a pixel density of 245ppi. A quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 CPU is under the hood, with the Adreno 302 GPU crunching graphics. 512MB of RAM is on board, with 4GB of native storage. If you need more memory, a 128GB capacity microSD slot is included. A 5MP camera is on back without a flash or auto focus. There is also no ambient light sensor to extend the battery life, by shutting off the screen when it is close to your ear during a call. A 1430mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Windows Phone 8.1 is pre-installed out of the box.

The Nokia Lumia 530 can be purchased in White, Dark Grey, Green and Orange, and is in stock at the online Nokia Store. We expect the model to pick up in popularity, where the Nokia Lumia 520 left off.
