Washington: In a bid to push into the low-end smartphone market, Microsoft has reportedly tagged its Lumia 430 as the “most affordable Lumia to-date.”

At just 70 dollars excluding taxes, the specifications offered by the phone helps to achieve the impressive price point. The smartphone comes with a 4-inch WVGA display, 8GB of storage (with a microSD slot), and 1GB of RAM, reported The Verge.

The phone is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor and a relatively small 1500 mAh battery.

The Lumia 430 joins the league of Lumia 435 and 532 handsets in Microsoft’s lowest-priced Windows Phones while offering similar camera capabilities.

Microsoft’s latest windows phone features a 2-megapixel camera at the rear end and a VGA 0.3-megapixel camera at the front.

The tech giant said that it is planning to make the smartphone available in April in APAC, IMEA, Russia, Kazakhstan, and Belarus.
