Microsoft didn’t mention any U.S. release plans when it announced the Lumia 435 back in January, but it looks like the low-cost Windows Phone is indeed going to hit a U.S. carrier.
T-Mobile has launched support pages for the Microsoft Lumia 435 on its official website. Included are pages for a Phone Overview, several How tos, Troubleshooting, and more. None of the pages have any information related to the phone’s release date or price, but a Reddit user that claims to be a T-Mobile employee suggests that it'll arrive on May 3.
The Lumia 435 is one of the most entry-level phones in the Windows Phone family, featuring a 4-inch 800x480 display, 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor, VGA front and 2-megapixel rear cameras, 8GB of storage, microSD slot, 1GB of RAM, and a 1560mAh battery. Microsoft said in January that pricing for the Lumia 435 would be set at $81 without a contract, and I’d expect that whenever the Lumia 435 hits T-Mobile, it’ll carry a similar price tag.
