Dual Sim Capability
According to VR Zone, Nokia Lumia 530 will have dual sim slots which will allow smart phone users in the target countries to simultaneously use two numbers from two different carriers without the need to carry two different mobile phones.
Digital Spy stated that Nokia Lumia 530 will have 4.3-inch display which is few notches bigger than the 4-inch screen in Nokia Lumia 520. With this feature, smart phone users will be able to see clearly the texts, callers, photos, and other information displayed on their smart phone screens.
GSM Arena cited that Nokia Lumia 530 will likely run on Microsoft's latest operating system, the Windows 8.1. With this operating system, smart phone users can be able to keep in touch with family and friends, take photo, personalise the tiled home screen, get apps, play music and games, search for places, work on the go, make calls, and protect their info from their Windows phone.
Various Web sites have also mentioned that Nokia Lumia 530 will come with virtual on-screen keys unlike the physical buttons fund in the Nokia Lumia 520 and 525 units. With this feature, smart phone users will have easier time navigating through the various parts of their smart phone units.
The above-mentioned sources also stated that Nokia Lumia 530 will reportedly have Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset along with 512MB of RAM. Given this feature for an entry level, smart phone users will be able to perform different tasks like browsing the internet, playing games, or reading texts with ease.
