The Nokia Lumia 530 smartphone with Windows Phone 8.1 is formalized and the fate of the mobile phone Nokia Asha is quite clear now.
Earlier in the morning, we talked about the arrival of a Nokia Lumia 530 smartphone to succeed the model Nokia Lumia 520 who attended the launch of the Windows Phone ecosystem with 12 million sales counter. Well, here it is, now formalized by Microsoft.
No big surprises in terms of appearance and features as they only confirm leaks. We find a 4-inch smartphone runing by Platform of Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 compatible with 3G+ that offers a display of 854 x 480 pixels resolution, a 5 megapixels camera sensor and a 4 GB flash memory expandable to 128 GB MicroSDXC card. At the side of autonomy, the battery of 1430 mAh (same capacity as the Lumia 520) gives hope to 13.4 hours of communication, 51 hours of audio playback and 22 days standby.
Four finishes of white, black, orange and green will be available from August, and costs 85 euros in single SIM and less than 100 euros for double SIM. Such a price/performance ratio should allow the Lumia 530 and Lumia 520 to be a worthy successor, despite more Windows Phone partners since being free license. It also drives the point about the relevance of mobile Asha on the entry-level segment. Microsoft has indeed stop them in the coming months.
