Microsoft Launches Low Cost Lumia 535

The first Windows Phone powered smartphone with Microsoft branding, the Lumia 535, is launching in Pakistan today. It’s a standard affair as far as Lumia devices are concerned but what’s different is the competitive price tag: 14,500 PKR for the Dual SIM variant.

The handset comes with a large 5 inch screen, albeit with a lower resolution than we would have liked (960×540). It’s an IPS LCD display panel though which is a surprise given the price. It comes with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and an extendable microSD slot. Other features include a Quad Core processor, 5MP camera and 3G connectivity.


Customers have a lot of choice these days when it comes to smartphones but a large screen, 3G connectivity, Dual SIM capabilities and a low price tag are a winning combination in any price bracket.
