The Lumia 650 is a low-end Windows 10 Mobile handset that we have been hearing for some time now, although it was only recently that Microsoft’s CMO sort of confirmed it when he suggested that they had not decided on when to release the phone. However there is a good chance that it could be soon.
According to the reports, it seems that the Lumia 650 has made it through the FCC. For those unfamiliar with the protocol, basically all electronic devices that are to be sold in the US will have to pass the FCC’s inspection (amongst other regulatory and legal bodies, although this is subjective depending on the product).
This also means that the device is pretty much ready for prime time and we are just waiting on Microsoft to make the official announcement. Obviously there were no announcements made during CES 2016 which took place this week, but with MWC 2016 kicking off next month it could possibly be announced then.
Alternatively there is the Microsoft Build conference which is taking place at the end of March, but we reckon that might be a bit too long of wait. Either way we guess we’ll just have to wait and see, so do check back with us in the coming weeks for the details.
