Nokia has had a hard time keeping the new Lumia 530 under wraps, over the last couple of months as the device has been leaked in number of reports. Competition in the market is getting tougher, so there has to be a new Windows Phone 8.1 running handset that could replace the insanely popular Lumia 520.
The Nokia Lumia 530 release date seems to be inching closer as more rumors have leaked, suggesting an early launch. Now a Nokia Lumia 530 image has been leaked out in the wild, giving us a closer look at the purported handset. The phone, Nokia Lumia 530, has been spotted in a Windows Phone buying guide showing the available devices running Windows Phone 8.1.
Talking about the supposed spec sheet, the device will feature a 4.3-inch display. That's a slight bump from the 4.0-inch (800 x 480 pixels) display of the Lumia 520.
The device is expected not come with a front-facing camera nor standard physical navigation buttons, as Windows Phone 8.1 allows the use of virtual on-screen keys. However, the Windows phone buying guide doesn't specify the release date, but speculation is that the Lumia 530 might get announced on T-Mobile's 4G LTE network.
Previous reports in the past had claimed the upcoming Windows Phone handset has been codenamed "Nokia Rock."At the same time, @evleaks claims the handset will announce as Nokia Rise on T-Mobile.
