Information about the Microsoft Lumia 650 started to surface a few weeks ago, and now a leaked image confirmed the design of the smartphone. Although the existence of the device wasn’t confirmed by any official statement made by the tech giant, it seems that the Lumia 650 does exist and that it will have a metal frame, just like it was rumored. The leaked image shows a simple design with a metal frame, a 5-inch display and a speaker grille on the lower end of the front panel. In case you were expecting the new Lumia device to awe you, you are in for a really unpleasant surprise. Alongside the image, specs were also leaked and they don’t promise an impressive smartphone.
Over the past few weeks, it was thought and said that the Microsoft Lumia 650 will be powered by a Snapdragon 212 chipset, but according to the latest reports, the new Windows 10 smartphone will be equipped with a Snapdragon 210, which is clocked at a lower, 1.1GHz than the 212. The 5-inch display won’t impress either with its 720p resolution, but then again, those who are waiting for the Lumia 650 know that they should expect an affordable device that won’t deliver high-end specs.
Other leaked specs suggest a 2000mAh battery, which is kind of disappointing, and a single GB of RAM, which might be a turnoff for some people. However, as we already stated, the Microsoft Lumia 650 was never intended to be a high-end device and regular smartphone users could be happy with the projected device. The Lumia 650 is expected to launch sometime at the end of this month, possibly in February, and rumor has it that it will cost less than $200. There is no official information regarding the device at this point, but as soon as we will find out more about the next Windows 10 smartphone we will let you know.
