Nokia Announces the Lumia 530 with 4 Inch Display and a Fixed Focus Camera

After announcing the Nokia Lumia 630, the first Dual SIM Windows Phone 8.1 device in India, Nokia has decided to follow it up by bringing the Lumia 530 to the market today. The device will be a successor to the Lumia 520, but the Microsoft owned company has decided to cut more than a few corners with the device despite boasting a higher moniker number in the series.

The Nokia Lumia 530 packs a 4 inch FWVGA screen and has a Snapdragon 200 chipset at the heart of it. The phone runs Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box and has a 5 MP fixed Focus camera on the rear. There is obviously no LED flash here. There is no front facing camera either and the device will be available in both single as well as a dual SIM configuration. You will get 4 GB internal memory and 512 MB of RAM on the Lumia 530. Just like the other Lumia devices, the Lumia 530 will be available in several colors including orange, green, white etc. The battery on board is a 1430 mAh unit and the phone does come with a built in FM Radio.

The device is going on sale for $114 in August. There is no concrete information on the release of the device in India, though an educated guess would be that the phone will cost anywhere between INR 6,000 and 8,000.
