Microsoft announces its cheapest Windows Phone Lumia smartphone ever

Microsoft’s Devices Group, which recently learned it was to lose thousands of jobs, has announced a new low-cost Windows Phone smartphone. The Lumia 530 is described by Microsoft as “the most affordable Lumia to date” and will go on same next month for an estimated retail price of €85 before taxes and subsidies (£67 ex.VAT; £81 incl. VAT).

Equipped with a 4-inch screen and a 5 megapixel camera, the Lumia 530 will be available in single SIM and dual-SIM 3G variants. It’ll have a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and will run Windows Phone 8.1.

Jo Harlow, who’s now corporate vice president of the reorganised Microsoft Devices Group, said “We are moving quickly to help more people experience the uncompromised Lumia technologies, third-party apps and Microsoft services that we deliver on our flagship products. Lumia 530 underscores our commitment to making affordable smartphones for everyone, and introducing more people to the best of Microsoft.”
