The Microsoft Lumia 650 isn’t a particularly high-end phone, nor does it pack the most impressive specs, but yet over the past few months, it has become one of the most talked about Lumia handsets as the rumors are claiming that the phone could be the only Lumia device of 2016, or possibly the last Lumia handset ever before the rumored Surface Phone is launched.
That being said for those who are wondering about the device, you can wonder no more because Microsoft has officially announced the Lumia 650. Interestingly enough this phone appears to be targeted towards the business user, thanks to built-in apps like Office and OneDrive.
In terms of specs, the Lumia 650 will feature a 5-inch AMOLED display and will use an aluminum frame. It will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 212 chipset and will also come with an 8MP rear-facing camera, and a 5MP front-facing camera with a wide-angle lens. It is priced at $199 and is expected to make its way to Europe later this month.
No word on whether the handset will make its way to the US, but for now it does seem to be limited to Europe, but hopefully it will make an appearance stateside in the future. In the meantime we guess those of us in the US will just have to remain patient.
