Back in July, Microsoft lifted the lid on the Nokia Lumia 530, the follow-up to the highly-successful Nokia Lumia 525. The Redmond firm’s new entry level Windows Phone 8.1-powered handset has now landed in China.
The news comes to us courtesy of Chinese-speaking Engadget China. According to the site, Microsoft is offering the Lumia 530 to the Chinese market for 599 CNY (around £57), marketing it as the cheapest new Windows Phone ever.
The Nokia Lumia 530 sports a 4-inch screen with a resolution of 480×854 pixels, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, no front-facing camera, 4GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 512MB of RAM, and a 1430mAh battery. It runs Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box that comes with the Chinese-speaking Cortana. In the UK, Cortana has a British accent.
We still don’t know when the Nokia Lumia 530 will be available in the UK, but we’re guessing it will be soon.
