Microsoft announced the Lumia 530 last month and had revealed that the smartphone will be available from August onwards. Almost on cue, the affordable Lumia smartphone is now available for pre-orders on Snapdeal ahead of a launch in the third week of August.
There is no word on the pricing of the Lumia 530, but the company did mention that its price tag won’t exceed €100 or Rs 8,000 approximately. As far as the specifications are concerned, the Lumia 530 flaunts a 4-inch FWVGA (854×480 pixels) LCD display, and is powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor paired with 512MB of RAM.
The smartphone also features a 5-megapixel fixed focus camera, 4GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card, and a 1,430mAh battery that the company claims is good enough for 10 hours of talktime and up to 22 days on standby mode. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and on the software front, it runs on Windows Phone 8.1 with Lumia Cyan update.
