Not destiny: prototype frameless budget Lumia 435 in the photo
Despite the fact that the Lumia line has sunk into oblivion, the curious prototypes revoked devices continue to emerge periodically in the Network. One of them is the Lumia 435 (aka Vela), which Microsoft inexplicably refused in 2014. The device is made in today’s popular frameless concept with the location of the front camera in the lower margin. Dimensions prototypes – 126,72 x 67,78 x 9.25 mm, with 5” HD display.
Technical characteristics of the budgetary status of his time: the Snapdragon 200 chipset, 1 GB RAM, 4 GB ROM expandable with microSD cards, 5-Megapixel main camera module, the battery on 1800 mAh battery and Windows Phone 8.1. Lumia 435 was to get in a price category to $200, where, by the way, Windows backgrounds feel most comfortable with. Why was the abolition of a potential budget hit, apparently, we’ll never know.
