Microsoft has announced a new addition to its affordable Windows Phone lineup — the Lumia 540 packed with a five-inch display and Dual-SIM capabilities.
Measuring only 9.52mm thick and weighs at 152 grams, the Lumia 540 also offers an eight-megapixel rear and a five-megapixel wide-angle camera for selfies.

Along with the new device, Microsoft will also give out an additional free 15GB of OneDrive Storage and another 15GB when you activate the auto-upload photo feature in the settings.
