Microsoft Lumia 650 has finally been unveiled and it’s packing in the Windows 10 Mobile software, making it the fourth handset to be bringing the treat.
Even before its launch, the Lumia 650 handset didn’t fail to create headlines. The features as shared on the official Windows blog reveal that the device sports a 5-inch display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor with 1GB RAM. The handset hides a 2000mAh battery and extends support for LTE. As for the snappers, this Lumia device has an 8MP primary camera onboard and a 5MP front-facing camera.
Microsoft stated, “We’re extremely proud of the Lumia 650 and believe it will quickly be seen as the device that provides the perfect balance between work and personal needs.” It is after the Lumia 550, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, that the company has now launched the Lumia 650, making it the first Windows 10 Mobile device of 2016. The handset boasts of a “highly polished, diamond cut and anodised aluminium” chassis.
As noted by Tech Radar, the smartphone has arrived for businesses, but its missing one of the key features of the new Windows 10 Mobile software, the Continuum. The feature allows users to connect their handset to the TV or any monitor and enjoy the apps on a bigger screen. The Lumia 650 has launched drenched in the shades of matte black and matte white.
This mid-ranged Windows 10 Mobile device offering a premium feel comes with a neat price-point to match. The handset will begin to retail in select regions in Europe starting February 15 and it will be wearing a price tag approximately $280 (US$199.) The company made the announcement through its blog and is also expected to be keeping a low key presence at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016. But tech aficionados can keep coming back for more updates on devices that will be grabbing all the attention at the MWC.
