In the last few months, Microsoft has released a handful of budget-friendly devices carrying a similar set of specifications with changes “here and there” to bring its cost down — and yes, making it difficult for consumers to choose a device. Last month, Microsoft unveiled the ultra-affordable Lumia 430, which is expected to see the light of the day in India tomorrow.
Windows Central reports that Microsoft India has scheduled a closed event tomorrow where the company is expected to launch the most affordable Windows Phone to date. There’s no word about the pricing or exact availability details, but we’ll find out more about it tomorrow.
As a quick recap, the Lumia 430 features a 4-inch display with a 800 by 480 pixels resolution, a dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor paired with 1GB of RAM — it’s good to see the company didn’t make cut back in this area. Other features include 8GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, 1MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera and ships with Windows Phone 8.1 with Lumia Denim as its operating system.
Microsoft announced the handset will come with a price tag of around $70, so we can expect its price in India to be extremely competitive.Further reading: Lumia, Lumia 430, Microsoft, Windows Phone
