Nokia Lumia 530 with WP 8.1 coming soon to T-Mobile

Microsoft logoNokia Lumia 630 is the cheapest Windows Phone 8.1 available on the market, but that won't be the case for too long. Even though the Lumia 630 is actually the only smartphone available on the market that comes with Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box, Microsoft is expected to launch a few more devices by the end of the year.

The Lumia 930 has already been officially introduced back in April at BUILD 2014 developer conference and will be launched on the market in early June.

However, it will take some time until the Lumia 930 is released worldwide, as the smartphone will only be available in a few countries in the first week of June.

Anyway, the next smartphone with Windows Phone 8.1 that Microsoft plans to announce very soon might be the Nokia Lumia 530.

According to @evleaks, the device is known as Nokia Rise and will definitely be available for purchase in the United States via T-Mobile. Obviously, it will be launched in other countries as well, but T-Mobile’s version may be slightly different.

We have recently reported on a certain Nokia RM-1027, which is believed to be the Lumia 530, the spiritual successor of the Lumia 520, the most popular Windows Phone to date.

It's no surprise that the most popular Windows Phone ever released on the market is also the most affordable launched by Nokia.

Lumia 520

This is why the Lumia 530 should follow in its footsteps and soon become at least as popular as its predecessor. Unfortunately, aside from the fact that it will pack a display that supports WGA (480 x 800 pixels) resolution and an Adreno 305 graphics processing unit, nothing is known about the Lumia 530.

Given the low-end GPU, we suspect that the smartphone will be equipped with a dual-core processor clocked at 1GHz or 1.2GHz. The phone's CPU is likely to be complemented by 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 64GB via microSD memory card.

Windows Phone 8.1 will not be the only new software included in the smartphone, as the device will also be preloaded with the Lumia Cyan update, which is exclusive to devices in the Lumia series and includes lots of new features and improvements that no other Windows Phone handsets offer.

Although there's no word on when exactly the Nokia Lumia 530 will be announced, given the fact that there's already a confirmation for one US-based carrier, we expect the smartphone to go official in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
