Microsoft will apparently release the Lumia 535 in the UK tomorrow. We’ve known for quite a while that it was headed over there eventually, and now we may be very close to its actual availability. The phone has already been out in other markets, and it’s ready to take its affordability to the UK too.
Speaking of which, Amazon has priced the Lumia 535 at exactly £97.32. That amount is pretty much in line with the pricing we’ve seen in other parts of Europe, and we’re talking about a SIM-free and unlocked smartphone that you’ll be purchasing for this much.
The retailer says the Microsoft Lumia 535 is due to be released on January 14, 2015, and we’re taking its word for it. However, the Lumia 535 seems to already be in stock at a couple of other online retailers, namely Clove and Unlocked Mobiles. Pricing never goes above £100 whichever company you buy from, so it looks like that might be Microsoft’s recommended level for the UK.
The Lumia 535 comes with a 5-inch 540×960 touchscreen, a couple of 5 MP cameras (one on the back, which has a LED flash too, and one on the front), 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage that’s expandable via microSD, and 42 Mbps HSPA support. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset with a 1.2 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU, and it has a 1,905 mAh battery. It runs Windows Phone 8.1.
