InFocus, the US-based technology company, that recently entered India with devices like M330 and M3, has launched a new smartphone in India: the M530 priced at Rs 10,999. This is the second smartphone from InFocus this month with the M350 being launched at Rs 7999 last week.
As with other InFocus smartphones, the M530 is available only on Snapdeal. However unlike the M350, M530 will not be sold via a flash sale model. InFocus announced at the launch event that so far the company has managed to sell 1.5 lakh phones (M330 and M3 combined) via Snapdeal. With the new M350 and M530 phones, InFocus has set a more ambitious target of 2 lakh phones per month. InFocus has tied up with Foxconn to manufacture its smartphones.
The M530’s USP is that it has a 13 megapixel front and rear camera. The rear camera has dual colour LED flash camera with optical image stabilizer & F1.8 aperture. The M530 has a 5.5-inch HD fully laminated screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

M530 has a “ceramic-like back”, says InFocus although there is metal on the camera rim, the photo frame and the speaker area. The M530 comes equipped with a MediaTek MT6595 Octa-core processor (Quad-A17 2GHz + Quad-A7 1.7GHz). It has 2GB RAM and 16 GB space with an additional support for 64 GB via microSD. It runs Android 4.4.4.
InFocus claims that the M530 is ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Xiaomi Mi 4 in the Antutu Benchmark tests. Of course we will have to test the phone to see where InFocus stands on this, although truly speaking benchmarks do not really give an accurate picture of the smartphone’s overall performance.
Additionally this is a Dual-SIM smartphone with 4G supported on both SIMs. M530 supports both FDD LTE and TD LTE. It has a 3100 mAh Battery which is removable. (Removable)
Sensors on the list are : Ambient light, proximity、accelerometer, e-compass, gyroscope. It has WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS/APGS for connectivity as well as FM radio. The M530 also supports USB-on the go. InFocus M530 comes in two colours White & Violet.
