The super-budget Lumia 530 from Microsoft Devices is set to hit Australian retail on September 1.
The 530 will begin life as an Optus exclusive, available as a prepaid bundle for just AU$129. It'll be in store from the start of September and available online from September 8. It will also be available outright for AU$149 from other retailers.
Once the as-yet-undefined exclusive period is over, the Lumia 530 will make its way to other service providers.

The 530 features a quad-core Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. The screen is a 4-inch FWVGA panel with a 854x480 resolution. Onboard memory is just 4GB, but the MicroSD slot can provide an additional 128GB.
Unsurprisingly, there's no 4G support, although it will work across Australia's HSDPA+ networks, as well at the remaining 2G networks.
The price undercuts the similarly-specced Android-based Motorola E, which costs AU$179.
