Microsoft Announces First Non-Nokia Lumia Smartphone

/ 3 years ago


Microsoft has announced it’s first non-Nokia branded Lumia phone. The Microsoft Lumia 535 is the first to carry the new Microsoft branding since their $7.2 billion acquisition of the Finnish company’s devices unit closed earlier in the year.

The new phone is a low-cost Windows Phone (obviously) that is billed to resemble where Microsoft is taking their mobile phone business over the coming years. The device features a 5-inch 960 x 540 pixel display, 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, and 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal storage (with a MicroSD card slot for expansion). The device also comes with front and rear 5-megapixel cameras.

    It’s still a Nokia albeit a slightly upgraded Lumia 525 by the looks of things.
