It looks incredibly likely that the budget Windows Phone from Microsoft is going to be making an appearance on T-Mobile store shelves very soon. The Lumia 435 is the latest low-end device that promises to be great value for money. T-Mobile’s support pages now list the device, and Microsoft has its own page dedicated to the T-Mo flavored version of the small smartphone. Thanks to the ever-perceptive eyes of 50Atomic for spotting this.
As for the device itself, it features a 4-inch WVGA (800 x 400) resolution LCD display with a pixel density of 233ppi. It’s also equipped with a 2MP rear camera and a VGA front facing camera as well as 8GB of internal storage and 1GB of RAM. For those needing a little more storage, you can expand it up to 128GB using a Micro SD card. Its 1,560mAh battery is removable and it’s powered by a dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. Users can also qualify for up to 30GB free cloud storage with OneDrive. It also has 4G HSPA+ speeds, but sadly, no LTE.

Although we don’t have pricing information yet, it’s expected that this will fit right at the bottom of the pricing ladder. This is the lowest-price Lumia device on the market right now internationally, and its specifications match up with its market position.
