Lumia 650 Ha! The Lumia smartphones have a very uncertain future when it comes down to Microsoft. To push this sentence more towards the truth, Microsoft recently revealed that it would be introducing a “more effective phone portfolio”. According to reports from Windows Central, the “Lumia 650 is the last Lumia”. Instead, the software giant will focus towards its rumored “Surface Phone” for this year. Microsoft’s Surface chief indicated The Verge that the company wants a more consistent design across its devices. The so rumered “Surface Phone” is expected to shake the table later this year.
“The Lumia smartphones have a very uncertain future when it comes down to Microsoft”
The following are some rumored specification of this phone:
- Windows 10
- Snapdragon 210 or 212 SoC
- 1 GB of RAM
- 8 GB of storage with micro SD expansion
- 5MP front-facing camera; 8MP rear with LED flash
- No wireless charging
- 4G (optional dual sim)
- 5″ screen with 720×1280 and 294 pixel per inch density
Looking at the specs, the phone is surely for budget buyers. If this is the last Lumia, it would have been cherry on cake if they considered top end specs while being first in its class. With only a single gigabyte of RAM and Snapdragon 210/212 processor it’s far inferior from what the competition have to offer. Stay tuned for more updates!
