In Short

The Lumia 430 is an entry-level Windows Phone announced by Microsoft on March 19, 2015. The full retail price is just $70 and it features a Dual-SIM 3G radio.

The ultra-budget dual SIM Lumia is destined for select emerging markets in April, 2015 including India, the Middle East and Africa, Asia-Pacific, Russia, Kazakhstan, and Belarus.

Although the specifications are on the low side, Microsoft did not cut back in the crucial areas that make smartphones important these days. Accordingly, the Lumia 430 has 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB internal storage (micro SD expansion) and both rear and front-facing cameras for video calls. Even better, the device is slated to get Windows 10 later this year when that OS is released.
