The Nokia Lumia 520 is the most popular Windows phone to date - and that's no surprise, given its tiny sub-£100 price and good range of features. But soon it will have some competition in the form of the Nokia Lumia 530. Here's everything we know about the Lumia 530, including release date, price and specs. Also see our Nokia Lumia 520 review.
Nokia Lumia 530: release date and price
With Nokia having yet to officially announce the Lumia 530, it's a little too soon to take a guess at its release date and price, and the rumour mill has yet to chuck anything out. However, it's now the only device out of three leaked in a Windows phone buying guide back in May (via GSMArena.com, see above) that has not been officially announced, which suggests we could hear more news about the Lumia 530 any day now.
The Nokia Lumia 520 was announced at MWC 2013 and became the best-selling Windows device in the world in September 2013. Its sub-£100 price proved very attractive to consumers. The company would be crazy to change that strategy now.
We'll update this article as soon as new information becomes available, so keep us bookmarked.
Nokia Lumia 530: specs
PhoneArena.comthis morning dug up some juicy tidbits on the Nokia Lumia 530 from the FCC's database. A handset known as the RM-1018 and thought to be the Lumia 530 runs Windows Phone and features 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS connectivity, a microSD slot and a removable battery.
According to the FCC's information the phone measures 62.3x119.7mm, which would suggest it carries a 4.3in display.
The idea that the Lumia 530 has a 4.3in display is supported by a leaked photo from a Windows Phone buying guide that features the Lumia 635, Lumia 930 and Lumia 530, and all are said to run Windows Phone 8.1. As we mentioned earlier in this article, the Lumia 530 is now the only device of the three that has not been officially announced by Nokia.
From the photo we are unable to see a front-facing camera or any physical buttons.
