Microsoft just unveiled a new Lumia device that is aimed at budget-concious users who want to own a Windows Phone-powered smartphone that won't hurt their pocket so much. The Lumia 430 Dual SIM is a device that will be sold for only $70 or about Php3,200 before tax. That price tag makes it the most affordable Lumia device to date.
Not only that, Microsoft also claims that this is the most cheaply-priced Lumia that "can upgrade to Windows 10 when it becomes available later this year". While it is priced very low that also means that the specs are not that great on this smartphone and Microsoft said that upgrading to Windows 10 in the future does not guarantee all Windows 10 features and experience will be the same. Still the more high-end a device is the better for the upcoming OS. But out of the box the Lumia 430 Dual SIM comes preinstalled with Windows Phone 8.1 with Denim Software Update.
Another features and functions that comes preloaded with the device are the Microsoft Office that includes Word, Power Point and Excel which can be accessed anytime and anywhere with the Lumia 430 Dual SIM. As we can also expect the device is integrated with Skype features so keeping in touch with our loved ones will be much easier and more fun. Check out other specs below.
