Microsoft Lumia 430 announced

With Microsoft working hard to promote its Windows Phone platform , cutting corners and making phones accessible to the low end market is probably the best option they have on the table right now , With the announcement of the Lumia 520 , things looked good for the platform , but now its about to get a whole lot better thanks to the announcement of the new Lumia 430 .

The Lumia 430 - which sits below the already cheap Lumia 5xx platform is priced at $70 off contract , the internals of the phone remind us of the Lumia 520 as this model is also equipped with the same 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon 200 Soc , but unlike the old model - this has 1GB of ram - making it eligible for the upcoming Windows (phone) 10 update . The rest of the phone is basically a mix of old parts and new ones , for starters , we have a 2MP fixed focus camera and a VGA front facing one for skype , the 4" display also has a low resolution of 480x800 - which by all means is still great for the price . You get 8GB of internal storage along with a MicroSD card slot which can hold cards upto 128GB .

The phone is expected to go on sale in regions including - APAC, IMEA, Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Belarus from April . The phone is expected to be priced at $70 (without TAX)
