Lumia 430 Will be ‘Most Affordable’ Windows 10 Phone

A very low-cost smartphone has been introduced by Microsoft. The Lumia 430 is a Windows Phone with dual SIM slots, available for just $70. It is also ‘the most affordably-priced Lumia that will be able to upgrade to Windows 10.2.’

As with other Lumia phones, Skype, OneDrive (30GB) and Microsoft Office are pre-installed. The phone is built with a polycarbonate shell and has a 4″ display (800 x 480).

A dual-core 1.2GHz CPU runs Windows Phone 8.1, with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. Storage can be expanded to 128GB through an SD slot. The 1,500mAh battery can be replaced.

Microsoft will begin to sell the Lumia 430 in select markets in MEA and APAC, as well as Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus, in early April, and India in late April.
