Microsoft unveils Lumia 435 and Lumia 532 smartphones

Microsoft has launched two new Lumia mobile devices.

Packed with the latest Microsoft services, the Lumia 435 and Lumia 532 smartphones run on the latest Windows Phone 8.1 operating system, the Lumia Denim Update, and Microsoft’s Office suite, which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.

Both devices offer a premium-layered design and glance screen, and include Outlook for email, seamless Skype integration, and front-facing camera for Skype video calling.

Users can also access HERE location services with the devices, capitalise on 30GB of free cloud storage on OneDrive, and access the thousands of apps that are available in the Windows Phone store.

“When we launched the first Lumia devices over three years ago, we said we were committed to bringing devices to as many people and price points as possible,” said Jo Harlow, corporate vice president for phones at Microsoft. “With the Lumia 435 and Lumia 532, we’ve realised our goal of creating the most affordable Lumia devices to date, opening up the opportunity to reach those people who are buying a smartphone for the very first time. Lumia 435 and Lumia 532 deliver competitive hardware alongside innovative software that will continue to receive the very latest updates and enhancements, keeping users up-to-date with the best new features.”

The Lumia 435, which is the first release from the 400 series, comes with a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, while the Lumia 532 comes with a quad-core processor. Both phones have a 1560 mAh battery, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of memory, and the ability to house a micro-SD up to 128GB.

The new devices will begin rolling out this February in selected countries across Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa.

Microsoft revealed that the estimated price of the Lumia 435 is €69 and the Lumia 532 around €79.
