Microsoft announces the super-affordable Lumia 435 and Lumia 532

A few hours after the mysterious Lumia 532 passed through Brazil's equivalent of the FCC, Microsoft has made the device official. The Redmond giant also launched the Lumia 435 in single- and dual-SIM versions, with the device becoming the most affordable Lumia handset yet with a price tag of 69 EUR ($80) before taxes.

The Lumia 435 features a 4-inch WVGA screen, 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 CPU, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal storage, 2 MP camera at the back, VGA front shooter and 1,560 mAh battery. The device comes with the Lumia Denim update out of the box, and users will be able to access HERE's suite of services for free thanks to Microsoft's licensing deal with Nokia.

The device will be available in bright green, bright orange, white and black and will begin rolling out in select countries in Europe, APAC and IMEA in February

The Lumia 532 is also aimed at the budget segment, but the device features beefier hardware in the form of a quad-core Snapdragon 200 CPU. Another feature that has seen an upgrade over the Lumia 435 is the camera, with the Lumia 532 featuring a 5 MP shooter at the back. The rest of the hardware is similar, and the Lumia 532 will be available in bright green, bright orange, white and black, with rollout set to commence in Europe, APAC and IMEA in February for a retail price of 79 EUR ($93) before taxes.

Like the Lumia 435, the Lumia 532 will also be offered in single- and dual-SIM variants.
