Nokia Lumia 520 has become not only the most popular Windows Phone device released so far, but also one of the most attractive handsets of last year because it was cheaper, smaller and better. According to promotional materials for Windows Phone, Microsoft is preparing an update for this model: Lumia 530.
Promotional materials that were first noticed the name and image of this future product does not provide any technical details. Lumia 530 is already put together with Lumia 630, and the difference between the two phones screen diagonals suggests that we are dealing with a model of 4.3″. As in the case of higher relative Lumia 630, the future device will not offer capacitive hardware buttons, it comes down to virtual software buttons arising with the Windows Phone 8.1 update.
Because the Lumia 530 will be a lower model in comparison to recently launched Lumia 630, it is expected that it would be sold at a lower price than it. But this is not necessarily a positive thing because Lumia 530 is already likely not to be as attractive as its iconic ancestor.
Lumia 630 features a 4.5″ FWVGA screen, 512 MB RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 and a single camera, thus lowering the standard set by its predecessor Lumia 620 as has gave up the front camera. For this reason, the Lumia 630 seems to be the true successor of the Lumia 520 model, the future Lumia 530 is likely to have to go down.
The new Lumia 630 has already disappointed because it offers a RAM with a capacity of only 512 MB, while the Nokia already had on the market the low-cost Lumia 525 model, which offers a dual RAM capacity. Still limited to 512 MB RAM and have to make more compromises than Lumia 630, Lumia 530 risks to lose chances to become an affordable hit of 2014. We may see in which direction Microsoft will go when Lumia 530 will be officially presented.
