Microsoft Devices today announced the launch of "most affordable" Lumia 530 dual SIM smartphone for Rs 7,349 in India.

Microsoft Devices said Lumia 530 will be available in stores at a best buy price of Rs 7,349 starting August 14.

The new Lumia 530 will provide a powerful entry to Windows Phone 8.1 with a Quad Core processor delivering faster and smoother user experience, among others, it said in a press release.
