MicrosoftLumia535DualSIMMicrosoft has recently completed its $7.2 billion acquisition of Nokia, the Finnish handset business giant in April this year; but has very soon decided to drop the ‘Nokia’ name from its products.

Microsoft is ready to roll out its very first non-Nokia Smartphone this November in key markets around the world, carrying an affordable price tag of  $137 or Rs 8200 (exclusive of subsidies and taxes)

“Lumia 535 comes with our ‘5x5x5’ proposition,” said Jo Harlow, the Corporate Vice President for Phones at Microsoft, in their official press release.

The people at Microsoft believe that innovation should be available to all for which they have come out with this product which promises the very best integrated Microsoft services, a 5 MP wide-angle front-facing camera and a spacious 5-inch qHD screen, all at a much affordable price.

The Microsoft Lumia 535 sports some exquisite specs like:

  • 5-inch screen display with 960 x 540 qHD resolution
  • 5 MP rear-facing and front-facing cameras
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 GB storage space

With the stunning Microsoft Lumia 535, Microsoft is sending clear signals all across that they are here to stay and to compete in the high-volume, ultra-thin and low-priced market. Where high-end Smartphones break the bank, the Microsoft Lumia 535 may be the potential game changer when it comes to the battle of price vs. specs.
