Not too long ago, Nokia Lumia 530 went on sale in Vietnam, and it seems Ireland may be its next stop. Three and Vodafone Ireland have confirmed that Nokia Lumia 530 will be offered to customers in the coming weeks. Unfortunately, there’s no exact launch date available, nor its pricing, but it shouldn’t be more than €100 — the device launched for almost €82 in Vietnam.
Nokia Lumia 530 doesn’t come with the most attractive specifications on board, but should be enough for those who are looking for a budget-friendly device and want to test out how Windows Phone operating system works. The device comes with a 4-inch display sporting a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels, a quad-core Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB storage with a microSD card slot, 5MP rear camera, a 1,430 mAh battery, and runs Windows Phone 8.1 as its operating system.
Personally, I don’t see myself buying the Lumia 530 as there are hardly any changes when compared with the Lumia 520, except the processor. Recently, Chinese OEMs have launched Windows Phone devices, carrying a similar price tag with a little bit better hardware. Anyway, we’ll update you as soon as the Nokia Lumia 530 goes on sale on Irish shores.Further reading: Lumia 530, Windows Phone
