Microsoft Launches Entry-Level Lumia 435 & Lumia 532

Microsoft took the wraps off its most affordable Lumia handsets to date: the Lumia 435 and the Lumia 532. Both smartphones look uncannily similar to the Nokia X series Android smartphones. It's like Microsoft just replaced the heavily-skinned Android OS on the Nokia X with Windows Phone 8 then sells it under the Lumia name. Plus, with their sub-$100 price tag, they are priced similarly to the Nokia Asha line.

The Lumia 435 is the cheapest Microsoft smartphone to date - priced at around $80. It comes with a 4-inch LCD touchscreen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 233 ppi. It is powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset ticking at up to 1.2GHz with 1GB RAM and 8GB of expandable internal storage. It also has a 2-MP main camera with fixed focus, a VGA selfie-shooter, and a user-replaceable 1,560mAh battery. It is running Windows Phone 8.1 with the Lumia Denim update. The adopters of the device will also have up to 30GB of cloud storage on OneDrive at their disposal. Free global navigation with HERE Maps and HERE Transit is also included in the mix.

The Lumia 435 will be available in black, white, green, and orange color variants. It will arrive in select markets across Europe and Asia this February 2015.

Along with the Lumia 435, Microsoft has also launched the Lumia 532. It's also very affordable at just $90. It comes with Windows Phone 8.1 with the Lumia Denim update. Like the Lumia 435, the Lumia 532 also packs a 4-inch display of 480x800 resolution with a pixel density of 233 ppi. Its main camera has been bumped up to 5-MP but still fixed focus. The Lumia Camera app is preloaded, which gives it a bunch of manual controls over the camera.

The Lumia 532 is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 clocked at 1.2 GHz with 1GB RAM and 8GB of expandable internal storage. There is also 30GB OneDrive cloud storage to boot for free. All of that is backed up by a replaceable 1,560 mAh battery unit, which Microsoft says is good for 22 days of standby, 12 hours of talk time, 12 hours of Internet browsing, and 7 hours of video playback all in one charge. The Lumia 532 will be released in Europe, APAC, and IMEA next month. Are you guys excited about these affordable Microsoft Lumia handsets?
