The Lumia 535 is the first smartphone that has done away with the Nokia brand. And guess what? It has arrived in Malaysia!
We expected a little more of an impact with the first Windows Phone without Nokia to be honest. Aside from its attractive appearance, the Lumia 535 is definitely a lower end device.
It sports a 5 inch qHD (960×540) display and is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. This is mated with 1GB of RAM and 8 GB worth of internal storage. In addition, the Lumia 535 has a 5 megapixel main rear camera complete with LED flash. On its front, it has a 5 megapixel wide angled shooter.
Users will be able to insert a microSD to expand the storage capacity and even change back panels to different colors including green, cyan, orange, black, and white. On top of that, the Lumia 535 comes pre-installed with Microsoft services and is powered by Windows Phone 8.1 with Cortana.
Microsoft is releasing the device for sale this month in two variants – single SIM and dual SIM. The device is worth MYR 429 (USD$123). If you purchase the device this month, you will get in addition, a gift box worth MYR 99. In the box, you will find 16GB microSD card, 2200mAh power bank, screen protector, a notepad, and a keychain.
