Microsoft hasn't been shy after making the Lumia brand its own, releasing smartphone after not so smartphone. The latest affordable handset comes in the form of the Lumia 430 Dual-SIM.

The Microsoft Lumia 430 Dual-SIM aims to slip into your pocket without your wallet even feeling it with its friendly $70 price, which is around £50.

For your money you'll get a 4-inch screen with 800 x 480 resolution equating to 233ppi. Powering the handset is a Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and backed by 1GB of RAM. There will be 8GB onboard storage along with microSD expansion for up to 128GB cards plus 15GB of free OneDrive cloud capacity too.

On the rear is a 2-megapixel camera and for grainy selfie fans there's a VGA front-facing camera too, although this is more aimed at Microsoft's Skype users.

The Lumia 430 is dual-SIM and comes sporting Microsoft Phone OS with Lumia Denim. This means it's also loaded with Microsoft Office for Word, Excel and PowerPoint available on the go.

The Microsoft Lumia 430 Dual-SIM will be available in April but only in the Middle East and Africa, the Asia-Pacific region, Russia, Kazakhstan, and Belarus.
