Summary on Price and availability:
- Lumia 535 will begin rolling out to key markets in November
- UK availability expected in Q1 2015.
- Lumia 535 will be available in bright green, bright orange, white, dark grey, cyan and black
- estimated to cost around 110 EUR before taxes and subsidies.
Those are some pretty darned good specs at that price. 5″ screen with 5MP front facing, 1.2GHz Quadcore, 1GB RAM. Not bad all around.
This should continue the legacy of the 520/620.
It’s a shame UK won’t get it until AFTER Christmas as this would be such a nice, high value gift.
