The Microsoft Lumia 532
The second device announced is the Lumia 532 which also come in a single and dual sim version..looks identical to the 435 and both remind me of the Nokia X2.
While Windows Phone 8.1 is designed to run amazingly fast on any of our smartphones, the Lumia 532 packs a quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM that makes for a super responsive, smooth and easy to use experience, perfect for Minecraft: Pocket Edition and Candy Crush Saga-playing and Instagram-sharing.
Featuring a 5-megapixel main camera, the Lumia 532 is always on hand to capture the world at a moment’s notice, and thanks to the Lumia Camera app you’ve got total control over your camera settings – like a pro.
For those who like to capture what’s on the other side of the 4-inch screen, i.e. yourself, you’ll find the front-facing camera is ready to snap your best smile using the Lumia Selfie app. it can also help you connect with friends or family across the world with Skype video calls, thanks to the built-in Skype integration.
You can use other trusted Microsoft services straight out of the box too, such as built-in Microsoft Outlook for all your emailing needs and the Microsoft Office suite, making it easy for you to access, edit or share Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents on the go.
For those smaller, more personal documents, OneNote is the perfect note-taking tool that will have you ditching those old dog-eared journals. Naturally, these documents can be synced and kept securely up-to-date across any of your Internet-enabled devices, thanks to up to 30GB* of free OneDrive cloud storage.
When it comes to storage, the Lumia 532 comes with 8GB built in with the option to expand that up to 128GB using the micro SD slot. And again, there’s up to 30GB of free OneDrive cloud storage should you need more.
Also available will be a case called the CP-634 which also holds credit cards..
Its estimated the 532 will be about €72 plus taxes etc..
