Microsoft Lumia 540 breaks cover, coming soon to India

Microsoft has come to terms with the fact that if it is ever going to have a strong foothold in the smartphone arena, it will get it from value-for-money of budget devices. The technology giant has been constantly launching budget Lumia devices globally, and has now taken the wraps off the Microsoft Lumia 540. This budget smartphone will be slotted below the recently launched Lumia 640 and above the Lumia 535.
