Microsoft unveils Lumia 535 in Malaysia
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.
