Microsoft Lumia devices are coming in at the rate at which Samsung once may well have been super proud of. However, since 2014, Samsung has slowed down in speed when it comes to offering products focussing largely on product quality than the number that the offer, while Microsoft has gone the Samsung route by throwing a lot to the wall and hoping some of the things would go ahead and stick, making sure it makes some success out of it.
The latest move in this direction has been Microsoft announcing yet another budget smartphone in the range with the moniker Lumia 540. the device has been launched in the United States initially and will see a global rollout soon.
It is a successor to the Lumia 535 and features a 5 inch 720 P display with a 1.2 GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 200 SoC. The device has a RAM of 1 GB and 8 GB internal memory with support for Micro SD card. Out of the box, the phone will run Windows Phone 8.1 with Denim update, though there has been no confirmation about the Windows 10.1 release for the device yet. The phone has an 8 MP rear camera with a 5 MP front-facing snapper with a 2200 mAh battery. The device will be available in several colors, very much in line with the other Lumia devices, including colors like orange, cyan, black etc and sell for $149.
