Alleged Lumia 535 with Microsoft branding leaked in China
Yesterday, Microsoft announced that it will be launching the first Windows Phone with its branding on November 11. It looks like the device may turn out to be the Lumia 535, as images of a handset with that name sporting Microsoft's branding have surfaced on China's Tieba, an online community powered by Baidu.
From the images, Microsoft branding is clearly visible at the front and the back of the handset. As for specs, earlier leaks point to a 5-inch qHD screen (960 x 540), 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 200 CPU, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal memory, 5 MP camera with flash, VGA front shooter and a 1,900 mAh battery. The device is rumored to be available in a total of seven color variants, and is said to offer dual-SIM functionality.
What do you guys think of the leaked images?

On my L920 it looks subtle the Nokia branding.
A next flagship better has more subtle branding or i ain't buying it.

Lumia A = 9xx series
Lumia B= 13xx (B for big)
Lumia B+= 15xx
Lumia C = 8xx
Lumia D= 7xx
Lumia E= 6xx
Not sure if they should keep the 5xx because F= fail.
Plus looks like on-screen keys.
The display looks pretty bad, but Lumia's without CB have always been nasty looking to me.
It is plastic phone.... Just to show...
In China it's very popular dummies to show off in the store.... Once you ask they bring the real phone
Ok.. Lets see this one too...
I didn't invest in 530. Hope this may force me to grab it from the store this winter
They need to sit down, shake some sense into one another, & STOP releasing so many phones. It is just confusing.
Come up with a clear strategy, build just SIX distinctly different phones that beat the rest of the market on specs and price....and then get them out to EVERY carrier;
730/830 (merge into one affordable flagship)
1030 (showcase device)
Come on a Microsoft....you are spreading yourself too thin, & confusing the public.
Point being, Microsoft need to stick with the same numbering system for each generation.
Snapdragon S4 phone are **20 series
Snapdragon S*00 phones are **30 series phones.
& so on.
It is just too confusing at the moment.
Well, once again it seems its time for the horse and pony show without a flagship device, many years ago many people left Sony Ericson T Series phones, great full featured camera phone, and never returned because of their slowness on producing a worthy flagship smartphone, an exodus to Samsung and in my case Nokia, the N96 to be exact, and I have been on "Nokia" ever since. Careful Microsoft, at least start teasing a LUMIA, yes, LUMIA flagship or something, and make it good.
Something in the way of a 1030 and 103X...5" and 6" variants, I like the idea of 61mp 10X lossless zoom, 64 to 128gb internal with sd slot...lets never make the mistake of leaving out the expansion slot again...and cutting edge tech, not that lacking dying tech the 1020 got.
And yes, lets not forget and 1530.
Both priced under $600, that's right, you want to beat the champions Microsoft? You have to fight harder, why would any Android or ios user jump ship without more reliable, Innovative,cutting edge features for a noticeably better price? Heck, I am barely hanging in here and I have been with Nokia for so very long. Now that the Symbian file freedom and USB to Go is gone the only thing keeping me here is the free offline turn by turn navigation and the hope of a super camera, literally.
Anyway, with the right (read: Cheap!) off contract price, this will be my next phone. I'm using a 521, which works great now that I have finally have Cyan and Denim, but screen size, RAM, no FFC and no flash are my only real complaints and they all seem to be addressed here (that does look like a tiny LED flash on the back, doesn't it?).
