Lumia 435: The Cheapest Lumia Yet

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Since Microsoft took control of Nokia's Lumia line, it's been pushing to make the phone range more affordable. Now, it's released the cheapest Lumia yet. Say hello to the 435, which costs just €69 (£53.41).

The phone features a 4-inch WVGA display, a 1.2GHz Snapdragon chip, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. In a blast from the recent past, the phone also features capacitive keys at the bottom of the screen, and it comes loaded with the full Office suite, too; great value for money, getting those applications for that price. It will be available in 'select countries' from February.

Elsewhere, the new Lumia 532 joins the existing 535, with a smaller 4-inch WVGA but the same 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel camera and 8GB of storage. All perfectly serviceable devices for those on a budget, with the phone costing just €79 (£61.65) [Microsoft]
