A Vietnam retail website has posted a listing for what it has labeled the Lumia 530 in what could be the latest evidence showing Microsoft's plans to launch a true successor to the Lumia 520 budget smartphone for Windows Phone 8.1.
The alleged specs of the phone, as shown on the site, include a a 4-inch ClearBlack display with a resolution of 480x854. Inside there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor with a clock speed of 1.2 GHz, along with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. The phone is also supposed to have a 5 megapixel rear camera.
The listing shows a blue version of the phone but it also claims that the Lumia 530 will come in grey, white, orange and green colors. There's no word on a price on this listing.
It's more than possible that this retailer has simply posted a placeholder page for the Lumia 530, which has yet to be confirmed by Microsoft, so the hardware specs may not be completely accurate. However, there's evidence that the phone is on its way. A mysterious device from Microsoft that could be the Lumia 530 recently passed FCC inspections, and photos of what may be the smartphone cropped up on a Chinese social network a couple of weeks ago.
As always with these kinds of pre-release listings, take them with a big grain of salt. What do you think about the alleged hardware specs for the Lumia 530?
