The Cheapest Lumia is Here, Microsoft Lumia 435 is just Under $100

Microsoft Lumia 435 is the company's cheapest Lumia smartphone to date and it just got officially announced today. It is a sub-$100 Windows Phone powered smartphone and aimed at challenging Google's line of Android One smartphones especially in India.  Actually beginning February the Lumia 435 will be rolled out in Europe, Asia Pacific, India, Middle East and Africa.

We are looking at a 4-inch device with WVGA display or 800 x 480 pixel resolution. This will be available in single or dual-SIM depending on the market and will support up to 3.5G network. Inside the Lumia 435 are 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor from Qualcomm, 1GB of RAM and a default 8GB of storage. If that is not enough users will be able to add more up to 128GB via microSD card.

Since it is a budget-focused smartphone we can understand why specs are not as impressive as other high-end smartphones around or from other competitions but this should perform well enough even for just browsing the net. Good thing is Microsoft decided to include a bigger 1GB of RAM instead of the usual 512MB found on other low-end Lumia devices. As for its cameras, there are a 2MP one on the back and a 0.3MP on the front panel.

Running the Lumia 435 is a Windows Phone 8.1 OS including the Lumia Denim Update. And just like other Lumia devices, this phone will be available in multiple color selections like orange, green, white, and black.
