Amazon France opens pre-orders for Lumia 435 & Lumia 532
Both low-cost Lumia phones available soon
After showing up on Amazon UK with an expected shipping date March 1, both entry-level Lumia smartphones go live for pre-orders in France, again on Amazon, but this time with more reasonable pricing.
Amazon France doesn’t specify the release date for both Windows phones in the country, but you can place your order and wait for an email with details once the date becomes official. The retailer, however, is expected to ship your device by the end of February.
Microsoft Lumia 532 has a price tag of 89.90 EUR, while the cheaper Lumia 432 costs 10 EUR less. Both smartphones share many of the features and have similar design features. They have 4-inch screens with an 800 x 480 resolution, Snapdragon 200 quad-core processors at 1.2 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 Gigs internal storage. The 532 comes with a better camera, a 5MP shooter on the back, while the Lumia 435 has a basic 2MP camera. Both devices have VGA /0.3MP/ cameras up front. Microsoft has listed the 435 and 532 as ‘Windows 10 Ready’ which is a sign that they should be upgraded to the latest OS later in 2015.
The previous (and the first ever) Microsoft Lumia 535 is now being sold for EUR 104 on Amazon.fr, or just EUR 15 more than the Lumia 532.
