Microsoft has announced the release of a new Lumia smartphone – the Nokia Lumia 530.

The Lumia 530 is and entry-level smartphone designed for people on a budget. It comes with Windows Phone 8.1 and 512MB of RAM; along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200, which is a 1.2GHz quad-core processor ready for all your apps and games.

The handset itself is no phablet like most these days, but who says that’s a bad thing?! It features a 4-inch 854 x 480 LCD screen and a 5 megapixel rear camera. The phone doesn’t come with flash and doesn’t feature a front facing camera either, so you’re going to have to put those selfies on hold.

Featuring a minimal 4GB of internal storage, the Lumia 530 also supports microSD cards and comes with 15GB of OneDrive cloud storage, which counteracts the lack of internal memory.

As for battery life and standby time; Microsoft has claimed that the 1,430mAh battery is able to power the phone for up to 13.4 hours of talktime or 5.5 hours of video playback; which, for a budget phone, isn’t too bad.

The handset itself is set to be available in 4 colours: green, orange, white and dark grey. Price-wise, the handset is to be available at launch for €85, and although no price tag for the UK has officially been revealed, it is suspected to be around the £70 mark; enough to keep any pocket pincher happy!
