We have been hearing rumors about the Nokia Lumia 530 for a while now. The handset is said to be the successor to the Nokia Lumia 520, a handset that does not have the best specs, but has managed to become one of the best selling Windows Phone handsets to date. We can only assume that Microsoft is hoping to replicate that success with the Lumia 530.
That being said we have yet to hear an announcement from Microsoft regarding the handset’s launch or availability, or pricing for that matter, but according to a recent listing on a Vietnamese retailer’s website (via GSM Arena), perhaps its image and its specs could have been revealed a little ahead of time.
Unsurprisingly the specs of the Lumia 530 aren’t exactly the most high-end or the most powerful. According to the specs, assuming they’re accurate, the Lumia 530 will sport a 4-inch display with a marginally higher resolution than its predecessor at 480×854, but it will also pack Nokia’s ClearBlack display technology.
The phone will also be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of onboard storage, a 5MP rear-facing camera capable of 720p HD video recording, dual SIM capabilities, and a 1,430mAh battery. It is possible that these specs and the image are simply placeholders, so take it with a grain of salt for now, but in the meantime what do you guys think?
