Lumia 530

Previous reports mentioned the budget-friendly Lumia 530 would go on sale in the UK starting September 4th, but it seems a few UK retailers are already selling the SIM-free variant of the Lumia 530. Clove, Carphone Warehouse, and Unlocked-Mobiles have started selling the Lumia 530 in the UK, but the asking price is different for the trio.

Unlocked-Mobiles is selling the SIM-free version for £86.98, while Carphone Warehouse and Clove are asking for a little higher price tag of £89.95 and £99, respectively.

The device doesn’t offer eye-popping specifications, but they are good enough for anyone who want to carry a spare smartphone which can handle day-to-day tasks. Lumia 530 comes with a 4-inch display sporting a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels, a quad-core Snapdragon 200 processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of memory with a microSD card support, 5MP camera, a 1,430 mAh battery and runs Windows Phone 8.1 as its operating system.
