Nokia, the company that had been launching phones since 1962 is set to launch a new smartphone in the market. It’s the Nokia Lumia 530 that features the upgraded Windows Phone 8.1. Its predecessors had a decent success not only in India but all over the world. It is the latest addition to the Lumia range just three months after the launch of Lumia 630.
Nokia, which is now owned by Microsoft Devices is yet to launch this smartphone in India. It is expected to hit the Indian markets very soon, most probably by the end of August. This smartphone is being considered among the most affordable Smartphones from Nokia and is expected to be priced roughly at 6,000 bucks. The company is basically focusing on the price-sensitive buyers who want good specifications at affordable prices.
The Nokia Lumia 530 would be launched in a competitive smartphone segment, which is already conquered by two very popular Google’s Android 4.4.2 KitKat Operating System running smartphones, i.e., Motorola Moto E and Micromax Unite 2. Both these smartphones would offer a very tough competition to the soon launching Nokia Lumia 530.
The Android KitKat OS packs various advanced features and tons of popular apps & games, which are not popular on the Windows Phone platform. It would be interesting to see, whether the Nokia Lumia 530 can offer a tough rivalry to Motorola Moto E and Micromax Unite 2 or not, post its launch in India.
The Lumia Nokia 530 is better than its predecessors in terms of new hardware upgrades and a latest OS version. This article has all the specifications of the Nokia Lumia 530, which you need to know, Check it out!

Our Words on Nokia Lumia 530
Nokia Lumia 530 is an affordable and budget friendly Smartphone, running on the latest Windows Phone 8.1 Operating System. It is powered by a decent Quad-Core Processor, which would drive Apps & Games with an ease on this device. However, the under powered 512MB RAM is something very disappointing with the Nokia Lumia 520. It packs a nice 5 Megapixels rear camera, but lacks an LED flash and secondary camera, which is again a disappointment.
The only reason why someone would really like to buy Nokia Lumia 530 would be for experiencing the latest Windows Phone 8.1 OS and the various added exclusive Nokia and HERE Navigation Apps at an affordable price tag. If you are planning to buy a non-Android smartphone at budget friendly price tag, then the Nokia Lumia 530 is worth a wait.
