It's notable for having two models, a single-SIM and dual-SIM variant, and for being inexpensive at under €100. It is the follow up to the Lumia 520 – the most popular Windows Phone of all time.

In terms of specs, the Lumia 530 is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 200 processor, a 4-inch LCD display, 5MP shooter, 512MB of RAM and 4GB internal storage (with the option to expand with microSD support). As touched on above, the Lumia 530 will be available in two editions, both single and dual-SIM (3G).

It's available in bright orange, bright green, white and dark grey. The outer shells are changeable, so that customers can match their phone to their outfit or mood.

It will be available globally in August 2014 and come to T-Mobile in the United States in September.
