The phone still carries the Nokia logo which is a bit surprising considering the company has been bought by Microsoft
The Lumia 530 has appeared in its first public appearance in a picture and we are so glad the most popular Windows Phone in the world has finally got itself a successor. The Windows Phone buying guide displays the available devices running Windows Phone 8.1 and that is how we first spotted the phone. There has been no mention of any specs so far on an official level but that doesn’t mean that we cant make some judgments based on our past experiences.
The picture shows three Lumia phones all lined up next to each other and if we compare the newcomer to the Lumia 635 then we can say that the Lumia 530 will sport a 4.3" display which is slightly bigger than what was featured on the 4.0" (800 x 480 pixels) display of the Lumia 520. Unfortunately, the phone is not going to have any front facing camera because we cant suspect one on the phone in the picture.
The front panel is entirely made up of the screen and there is no sign of any physical navigation buttons. This was nothing out of the blue since the Windows Phone 8.1 allows the use of virtual on-screen keys. However, this does not mean that there was no surprising element to the phone; we can see a Nokia logo on the phone which we were not expecting since Microsoft has bought the company for €5.44 billion.
