Nokia Lumia 530 coming to T-Mobile as Nokia Rise

T-Mobile will soon launch a new low-cost Windows Phone, Nokia Rise. According to EVleaks, this will the carrier’s version of the upcoming Lumia 530, which is an entry-level Windows Phone 8.1 device that supersedes earlier Lumia 520 and Lumia 525 models.

While we’re not sure what this unit is all about, we’re guessing it will pack a WVGA screen, Qualcomm’s dual-core processor while boasting 512MB of RAM. Or 1 gig, again – we’re not sure.

There will also be some rather basic camera on the back, most likely with a 5-megapixel sensor. Don’t expect it to be as nearly as powerful as the one Nokia PureView phones have; you’ll be able to take occasional shots, though.

All said, we expect the Lumia 530 to cost less than or around $150 sans any strings attached… More to come, obviously.

    Looking for high end Nokia WP8 phone for T Mobile. Let hope the don’t short change the next phone like did with 925 reducing the storage by 50% to save a couple of dollars and crippling the phone for T Mobile customers.

      I would like to get a 930 variant on T-Mobile in August. Manufacturers really need to start offering 64GB models for all flagships. I shouldn’t have to compromise, damn it.
