Microsoft Lumia: the Power Of Everyday Mobile Technology to Everyone
Microsoft is launching its very first Lumia smartphone, with the tagline of “Microsoft is delivering the power of everyday mobile technology to everyone.” The giant’s new step marked the first time the company drops the Nokia name on its smartphones.
It seems Microsoft’s first Lumia is a low-end device targeted at the masses, but it’s not clear how Microsoft will name its first Lumia, but many say it’ll just continue Lumia 5xx series. In fact, the company could opt to ditch the number scheme that Nokia has used in the past.
The new smartphone will include a 5-inch display (540×960 pixels) with 1GB RAM, a 5-megapixel primary shooter, and 1.2GHz quad-core CPU Snapdragon processor. It has a forward-facing camera, something Nokia chose to cut from the recent low-end Lumia handsets.
The device will be powered by a 1,900 mAh battery and will be available in black, white, gray, blue, orange, blue and green colors.
The first images give us a good idea of how it will look. They also confirm the dual SIM support of the handset but it appears that 3G is only available on one of the slots and there’s no LTE at all. Either way, Microsoft Lumia is expected to be the first smartphone of its family to carry the Microsoft branding after the company officially got rid of the Nokia logos. we can see from the leaked images that the Microsoft name is clearly printed on the top of the phone. On the back, the company’s imprint is also visible.
The Lumia 5xx series have been by far the best selling Windows Phone handsets over the past few years so the mobile world’s excitement when rumors of a new member come up is easy to understand.
The first Microsoft branded Lumia model rumored to be unveiled on Tuesday, November 11 2014.
Microsoft will supposedly offer seven color variations for the Lumia 535. The unveiling will take place on Tuesday, at which time we should know more information such as pricing and availability.
