Microsoft has finally made the rumored Lumia 650 official. The smartphone comes with a premium metal design and a sub $200 price tag.
The Lumia 650 features a 5-inch 720 x 1280 HD AMOLED display and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 quad-core SoC based on the Cortex-A7 architecture, clocked at 1.3GHz. In terms of memory, the smartphone comes with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable onboard storage.
As far as the cameras go, the Lumia 650 features an 8MP primary shooter at the back with an f/2.2 aperture lens and a 5MP front-facing camera with the same f/2.2 aperture lens. In terms of connectivity, the smartphone comes with Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, GPS with A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, and 4G LTE connectivity. An FM Radio receiver is on offer as well, something we don’t usually see on most new smartphones these days. As far as battery life goes, the smartphone isn’t exactly going to be outstanding as it only packs a 2000mAh battery inside.
Unlike previous mid-range Lumia handsets, the Lumia 650 features a premium build with an aluminum frame in the middle and a removable back cover.
Microsoft says the smartphone will go on sale in select markets across Europe starting February 18 and will be priced at around $199 excluding taxes.
