What is Lumia 430?

Back in March, Microsoft quietly launched the Lumia 430 smartphone. It's basically a low-end Windows Phone 8.1-powered device, aimed at emerging markets.

The budget handset features a 4-inch WVGA display, a dual-core Snapdragon 200 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot for expansion storage. There's a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera, alongside a VGA 0.3-megapixel front-facing shooter. The phone is powered by a 1500mAh battery inside.
