Since its launch in November last month, Microsoft has been aggressively promoting the Windows Phone 8.1-powered handset in Asia. Apparently, Microsoft is now planning to launch an ultra low-cost smartphone for emerging markets.
According to Nokia Power User, the Lumia 435 will feature lower-end specifications. The device will arrive globally in single and dual-SIM versions.
The report suggests that the Microsoft Lumia 435 recently got certified in Indonesia and at FCC in USA. According to the smartphone's certification document, it will feature a 4-inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 800, a Snapdragon 200 CPU and a 5MP rear-facing camera.
In comparison to the Lumia 535, that's a slightly lower resolution display, while the fitted processor appears to be the same. Furthermore, the dimension of the Lumia 435 is 118.1 mm x 64.7 mm.
Meanwhile, PhoneArena reports that the Lumia 435 has recently been tested in India. From it we can ascertain that the upcoming handset is going to launch in India as well, though the exact time frame remains unknown as of yet.
