Microsoft has revealed the Lumia 430 Dual SIM, which is by a long shot company’s most reasonable low priced Lumia smartphone. The device will be considerably less expensive than the Lumia 435, which was released recently.
The design of Lumia 430 Dual SIM is to a degree unique in relation to the Lumia 435, yet the specifications are similar. The smartphone offers a 4-inch WVGA screen and is controlled by a 1.2GHz dual core Snapdragon 200 processor matched with 1GB of RAM. It is powered by the Windows Phone 8.1 with Lumia Denim update, with a 2-megapixel fixed focus primary back camera (no LED flash light) and VGA front camera. The smartphone will receive Windows 10 in future as affirmed by Microsoft. Likewise, the smartphone has Smart Dual SIM, which empowers users to allocate interesting profiles to SIM cards.
The Lumia 430 is coming in bright orange and black colors at a cost of US$ 70 (Rs. 4,384 approximate) without takes and subsidies. It will be available in retail stores across India, the Middle East and Africa, Asia-Pacific, Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus in April.
Commenting on the launch, Jo Harlow, Microsoft’s corporate vice president, said, “People around the world have responded enthusiastically to our affordable Lumia range. We continue to invest in this segment to ensure that as many people as possible can enjoy signature Microsoft experiences, regardless of budget. The Lumia 430 Dual SIM continues our commitment to combining the right hardware, software, services and apps with the right price to give people a smartphone they can afford and be proud to use,” he said.
