Microsoft Lumia 532 launched in India for Rs 6,499

By February 17th, 2015 AT 2:55 PM

Microsoft has understood that its low-cost Lumia smartphones are pretty popular among the masses, so it has started focusing on them rather than going in all guns blazing for the top-end segment. After launching the Lumia 435 for Rs 5,999, Microsoft has now launched the Lumia 532 for Rs 6,499. The low-cost Lumia is placed below the Lumia 535, and is meant to cater to the first-time smartphone users.

Lumia 532

It runs on Windows 8.1 on its 4.0-inch display, and is a dual-SIM smartphone, just like other entry-level Lumia smartphones (read as Lumia 520, Lumia 525 and Lumia 435). A quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 200 processor is joined in by 1GB RAM, which seems to be the new standard for Windows Phone devices.

Microsoft Lumia 532 Specifications

  • 4.0-inch display which has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels
  • Windows Phone 8.1 operating system (with Lumia Denim update)
  • 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 200 processor and 1GB RAM
  • 8GB internal storage, expandable by 128GB
  • 5MP rear-facing primary camera (without flash) and a VGA front-facing camera
  • 3G, Dual-SIM, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, A-GPS, microUSB v2.0 port, and 3.5mm headphone jack
  • 1,560 mAh battery (talk time of up to 12 hours)
  • Colours: Black, White, Orange and Green

The Lumia 532, which competes with the Moto E, doesn’t seem like a good device for its price. One can easily prefer the Lumia 638, which is available for Rs 6,999, as it offers a major upgrade over the Lumia 532 in terms of hardware specifications. The Lumia 532 will be available on Microsoft’s e-store and all other e-commerce portals as well as offline retail stores by the end of this week.

Lumia 435 launched too. Please someone review these two. Planning to buy a Lumia 532. Does it have auto focus camera?

Android or GTFO! 😛 /jk.
But in all seriousness, when most OEMs are launching 5″ HD Androids with LTE for cheaper (Lenovo A6000, Xiaomi Redmi 1S etc.), how the heck does MS hope to compete with puny, underpowered 4″ 3G devices, especially with an already none-too-impressive app market to begin with?
Sure, most people wouldn’t care about the flexibility and freedom that comes with Android – or any FOSS platform for that matter – but they’d still care about screen sizes, if not anything else!
