Microsoft Lumia 535 official

Microsoft has officially unveiled the Lumia 535, the first device in the Lumia series not to feature the Nokia brand name.

The new budget phone was teased over the weekend and has been leaked extensively in China ahead of launch.

Once again, Microsoft is making selfies the main focus of a Lumia device. The 535 comes with the same five-megapixel front–facing snapper as the Lumia 730 and Lumia 735, with the Lumia Selfie app to help you hone those narcissistic pics to perfection.

The camera round the back is also five megapixels, which is not to be sniffed at considering the 535's budget price. There’s an impressive 5–inch qHD screen too, although its 960x540 resolution certainly leaves a lot to be desired.

Under the hood, there’s 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage space, 128GB microSD support for stashing extra files, photos and tunes and Bluetooth LE support for breezy music streaming.15GB of OneDrive access comes as standard too.

Colours up for grabs include cyan, orange, grey, black and white.

There are two versions of the Lumia 535: single SIM and dual SIM. Microsoft says both phones will be available in selected markets from later this month, with prices starting at €110 (£86).
