Microsoft unveils the most affordable Lumia smartphone ever

Windows Phone fans who do not wish to spend much on their next smartphone, can take a hard look at the new Microsoft Lumia 430 which happens to be the cheapest WP handset ever. Its price has been set by the Redmond-based company at $70 which roughly translates to around Rs 4400.

At that retail value, you’ll be getting a dual SIM-supporting 4-inch device that will come equipped with Windows Phone 8.1 and the latest Demin update. Moreover, it has also been made clear that the Microsoft Lumia 430 is eligible for the Windows 10 upgrade that’s to be made available later this year.
