Microsoft launched two devices today, the Lumia 435 and this, the Lumia 532, a handset that has shown up numerous times in leaks. The smartphone has been given an official release by Redmond and it is yet another budget attack, leaving us wondering just how many budget devices Microsoft now has... a flagship would be nice guys.The Lumia 532 is barley different to the also announced Lumia 435, coming in at $93 it is slightly more expensive, but hardly ups the spec ante. Under the hood there is the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 with 1GB of RAM, the same 4-inch 480p screen, although it gets an improved 5 megapixel rear fixed focus camera as opposed to the 2MP effort on the 435. All the rest is the same, VGA selfie lens, a swappable 1560mAh battery, and 8GB of expandable storage. Microsoft is also giving away 30GB of OneDrive cloud storage, while the devices runs Windows Phone 8.1 with the Lumia Denim update.
