Nokia Lumia 530 spotted online in CamSpeed, confirms no flash and running WP 8.1

Sofica Speedcam is a service that measures camera performance, through software called "CamSpeed" and a couple of tweets posted by the company confirms lack of flash, which in all honesty is no surprise, if it's going to suceed the 520 series of low end devices.​

More interestingly, it also confirms that the as yet unannounced Lumia 530 will ship with Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box - which confirms earlier reports - in this case version 8.10.12324.0.

Not many details have leaked through the @evleaks account about this low end device, Nokia has yet to announce it, but it could be confirmed along with a range of other Windows Phone 8.1 devices at Build, which starts on April 2.

All in all it looks to be a very exciting Build this year, with Windows Phone 8.1 being announced and made available to developers, and of course the Spring Update for Windows 8.1.

The Lumia 530 is expected to ship in a range of colors. It's also likely to sport a 4-inch screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, along with 1GB of RAM and may be announced at a special Nokia event on April 19th.

Note: This article has been updated to correct the version of the Lumia that was spotted, it's infact the 530, not the 630. Sorry! #megafail ​

I wonder what the differences are then with respect to 525. Higher internal Storage? ClearBlack display? There has to be something!

Well the 525 has just more ram. I think 512 MB ram was the worst Microsoft could have done in terms of specs for wp8 devices. hopefully the 530 will have better menue buttons because they are not really good

Menu buttons? Better?

The bottom lines of three buttons. the 520 I used where not really responsive on those. definitely different to my 920

My 525 have them fine.

You know, it's funny: I stopped using flash on my 928, pictures without it usually turn out better. But it has OIS, I doubt these would be anywhere near as good....
Btw article title says 630, isn't this the 530?

I thought the flash is only used when needed? My 925 takes pics without it when there's enough light.

I have it disabled most of the time. I travel in places where the locals don't necessarily like you taking pictures of even the scenery so I make sure flash is always off. I noticed my pictures started coming out better so I've got it turned off 90% of the time (unless it's pitch black)
