Microsoft has announced two new budget devices in the Lumia 435 and Lumia 532. Both are 4-inch smartphones that come in both single- and dual-SIM variants, and are an indication that the company is mainly targeting the low-end market.
The Microsoft Lumia 435 comes with a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 CPU, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal storage, 2 MP camera at the back, VGA front shooter and 1,560 mAh battery. It also has the Lumia Denim update that brings a few extras to the basic Windows Phone 8.1 operating system.
Most of these internals are shared by the Lumia 532, although this smartphone will be slightly pricier due to it having a quad-core Snapdragon 200 CPU instead. It also upgrades the rear camera to 5 MP.
Both smartphones will be available in bright green, bright orange, white, and black. They will be available in the APAC region in February, with the Lumia 435 going at an RRP of US$80 (RM287) and the Lumia 532 with an RRP of US$93 (RM334).
