Microsoft’s latest smartphone is an affordable phone with a 5 inch, 720p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor, and a rather affordable price tag.
The Lumia 540 Dual SIM should be available in May for about $149.
As the name implies, the phone supports two SIM cards so you can use the phone on multiple networks. That’s not a feature that’s common for phones sold in the US, but it comes in handy in many parts of the world — and Microsoft plans to offer the Lumia 540 Dual SIM in the Middle East, Asia Pacific, and Italy.
The phone has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and 15GB of free cloud storage with Microsoft OneDrive (or 30GB if you enable auto-upload for your camera roll).
The Lumia 540 Dual SIM has an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and auto-focus, and a 5MP wide-angle front camera. The phone has a 2200 mAh battery.
Microsoft will launch the phone with Windows Phone 8.1 software, but a free Windows 10 update will be available later this year.
