Windows 10 ready Microsoft Lumia 532 launches in India

Windows 10 ready Microsoft Lumia 532 launches in India
Even though the Microsoft Lumia 532 is a low-end model, Microsoft says that it is upgradeable to Windows 10 Mobile. That is sure to go a long way in India where the phone has just been launched on Monday. Priced at the equivalent of $105, buyers are getting a smartphone that will be powered by the latest build of Microsoft's mobile OS before the end of the year.

So what are the specs of the Lumia 532? Glad you asked. The phone is equipped with a 4-inch screen offering a 480 x 800 resolution. The handset is driven by a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 CPU and does sport 1GB of RAM on board along with 8GB of native storage. If more memory is what you seek, a 128GB capacity microSD slot is available. A 5MP camera is on back (no auto focus), while a .3MP shooter graces the front of the unit. A 1560mAh battery keeps the lights on and Windows Phone 8.1 with the Lumia Denim update is pre-installed. Oh, and you should know that this model does feature Dual SIM slots.

The Microsoft Lumia 532 is available in bright green, bright orange, white and black. Earlier this month, the nearly similar Microsoft Lumia 435 launched in India with practically identical specs. The only difference (besides an approximately $5 cheaper price) is that the Lumia 435 sports a 2MP rear-facing camera.

Another difference between the 532 and the 435 is that 532 has quad-core while the 435 has dual-core.

The differences in real world usage are negligible, since the GPU and RAM are basically same. Also WP is a CPU-friendly OS, so it can run smoothly on dual core CPU.

I am glad Microsoft's Brand Lumia smart phones can run Windows 10. Folks the Most needed NEW APP for Windows 10 smart phones is an App that will enable Windows 10 smartphones to Run Android Apps. This would boost the Apps available to Windows smart phones to such a level that People who would never buy a Windows smart phone would "BUY" one because their favorite Android apps would run on Windows 10 smart Phones . There was a RUMOR that Microsoft software Engineers were trying to make one. if they succeed then Windows 10 mobile smart phones WILL GET THE APPS it needs to get People to BUY a Windows 10 smart phone. lets hope that some one does make this App for Windows 10 smart phones
