The Nokia Lumia 530 was announced with the same 4-inch touchscreen display, only with a taller 480 x 854-pixel resolution. The screen is still TFT, though it’s been 16 million colors in both generations of the phone.
The Lumia 530 inherited a 512MB RAM from it’s predecessor, but the processor has been refreshed to a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 CPU and Adreno 302 graphics processor. The new smartphone runs on Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 8.1 operating system.
There’s also a 5MP main camera, with no sight of LED flash or secondary camera. The battery is still the same 1430mAh battery (BL-5J) but Microsoft has promised a better battery life of at least 528 hours on standby.
Pricing for the Lumia 530 starts at $114 for the single SIM version and $135 for the dual SIM edition.
