And if you live in India, you can now purchase the Lumia 540 Dual SIM with a best-buy price of INR 10,199 in a Microsoft store and other specialty retailers near you.
There’s also a special incentive for Airtel customers: Those folks will get double the data on their current package free for two months if they purchase the Lumia 540. Further sweetening the deal is cash back* of INR 1,000 from Paytm, India’s largest mobile payments service, and INR 800 from Olacabs.
