lumia-435Earlier this month, Microsoft announced the entry-level Lumia 435. The handset came with very basic features and based on that, we can only assume that it will come with a very affordable price tag to match, making it the perfect handset for those who want a smartphone but don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a high-end one.

Indeed it does have a very affordable price tag as it was announced that it would be priced at €69, but unfortunately during the announcement, Microsoft did not mention if it would arrive stateside. However according to the folks at NPU, they have spotted the handset being listed on Microsoft’s US website and that it has been listed as “coming soon”.

Previously the phone was spotted at the FCC which is pretty much a requirement for devices that want to be sold in the US, so we guess its listing on Microsoft’s US website doesn’t come as too big of a surprise. The question is when can we expect it to be released? Microsoft’s earlier announcement had it pegged for a release in February, although those were for markets in Europe, the Middle East, India, Asia-Pacific and Africa.

In any case we will be keeping our eyes peeled for more information regarding the Lumia 435’s release stateside, so if you’re after a budget Windows Phone handset, then perhaps this could be worth keeping an eye on.
