While many lament the lack of any high-end Windows Phone devices on T-Mobile, there’s no denying that the company does a great job in offering the mid to low-end models. The latest to join its ranks is the Lumia 530 and it’s going to be available from October 15th. And in keeping with its budget philosophy, it’s only going to cost $79.20 full retail price.
It is the direct successor to the Lumia 521 which sold in fantastic numbers on T-Mobile. And its key specs are as follows:
- 4-inch, 480×854 pixel TFT display (245ppi)
- Snapdragon 200 quad-core 1.2GHz processor
- 512MB RAM
- 4GB storage, expandable up to 128GB
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Runs Windows Phone 8.1
- Available in orange, green, white and dark gray
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
- HSPA (no LTE)
- 1430mAh battery
- Weighs just 4.55 ounces
- 119.7mm tall, 62.3mm wide, 11.7mm thin
If you can’t wait until October 15, the device will be on sale through Microsoft Stores and Best Buy from October 5 (this coming Sunday).
