This week Microsoft have announced two new Lumia devices for the lowest end of the Windows Phone market. The Microsoft Lumia 435 and the Microsoft Lumia 532 are being called “the most affordable Lumia devices to date” by the company, working with Windows Phone 8.1 and introducing the 400 series to the Windows Phone environment. The Lumia 532 builds on the specifications and delivery of the Lumia 530 – that being the device that replaced the Lumia 520, the most successful Windows Phone device to date.
The Lumia 435 will be delivered in two formats – single-SIM and dual-SIM. There will be several colors delivered as well – orange, green, white, and black.
This smaller of the two devices works with a 4-inch WVGA (800 x 480) LCD display. This display has multipoint-touch abilities as well. Inside you’ll find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor (MSM 8210) clocked at 1.2GHz. Up front you’ll find a VGA camera and around the back a 2-megapixel fixed focus camera.
