Microsoft has called it a “5x5x5” smartphone package because the phone contains a 5-inch screen, 5-megapixel front and rear facing camera. Microsoft Lumia 535 is equipped with a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor and 1GB RAM.

The phone features the same wide-angle, 5-megapixel front-facing camera as the Lumia 730 and Lumia 735. The Lumia 535 not only provides you with crystal-clear imagery and the Lumia selfie app, but you’ll also be able to get more in a shot during those Skype calls.
