Microsoft has made its self-branded
Lumia 535 smartphone official,
making it the first Lumia handset to
eschew the “Nokia” name. The Lumia
535 is a decidedly entry-level
smartphone, but it is well-rounded
as far as features go, giving budget-
conscious users a device that covers
most of the bases they’ll care about
most while drawing them nicely into
the Windows Phone experience. As
expected, the handset features a 5-
inch IPS display with a 960 x 540
qHD resolution and Corning Gorilla
Glass 3.
The modest display is accompanied
by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200
quad-core 1.2Ghz processor, 1GB of
RAM, and 8GB of internal storage, as
well as a microSD card slot that
supports up to 128GB. This is joined
by the selfie-centric 5-megapixel
front-facing camera and the 5-
megapixel rear camera with an LED
flash. Sensors include an ambient
light sensor, accelerometer, and
proximity sensor, and connectivity is
fleshed out with Bluetooth LE.
Microsoft promises the Lumia 535
will always have the latest version of
Windows Phone with “regular over-
the-air updates”, and that it’ll arrive
with 15GB of free OneDrive storage.
There’s Cortana and Word Flow,
Action Center, and, of course, Live
Folders. Right of the box, both the
3G Single SIM and the 3G Smart
Dual SIM models will have the
Lumia Denim Update.
The Lumia 535 will be arriving first
in China, Hong Kong, and
Bangladesh later this month,
followed by other regions at an
unspecified date later on. The price
is set at 110 Euros, says Microsoft.
The handset will be available in
bright green, bright orange, cyan,
dark grey, white, and black.
