Buy a Lumia 530 for $110, get one free, with Microsoft UAE

Back in July, Microsoft announced the most affordable addition to its Windows Phone range ever, the Lumia 530. With a suggested retail price of just €85 EUR / $115 USD, the 530 is the company's new entry-level device, slotting in below the slightly larger Lumia 630.

For those in the United Arab Emirates, the Lumia 530 is about to get a lot more affordable, albeit briefly, as Microsoft has revealed plans for a special promotion this Thursday, September 25. On that day only, buyers will be able to pick up a Lumia 530 for 410 AED (just over $110 USD), and get a second 530 free, effectively bringing the price of the two Windows Phones down to just $55 each. 

For a brand new device, designed around Windows Phone 8.1, that's a pretty sweet deal. The promotion will be available only in selected stores across the UAE, beginning at 5:30pm on Thursday, and it will continue until stocks are depleted.

Key specs of the Lumia 530 include: 

  • 4-inch FWVGA (854x480px) LCD 
  • Quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB storage (plus microSD support up to 128GB)
  • 5MP fixed-focus rear camera 
  • 1430mAh battery 
  • 119.7 x 62.3 x 11.7mm; 129g 

We'll be delivering our verdict on the new low-cost Windows Phone in our in-depth long-term review soon, but in the meantime, be sure to check out our first impressions of the Lumia 530
