New Renders Showcase Microsoft's Upcoming Lumia 650
Microsoft's Windows 10 line-up still isn't as expansive, and previous Lumia devices still have not yet received the update as promised by the software giant. However, reports have surfaced that the company will be unveiling a new mid-ranged smartphone next year, the Microsoft Lumia 650, codenamed Saana.
According to reports, between January and February of next year, Redmond will be announcing the Lumia 650. It's positioned in the lower-tier Windows Phone devices, and it will be a practical, low-cost solution as a business device for companies to provide to their workers. Furthermore, it will also be ready for deployment for those in the enterprise.
However, the new renders aren't leaks. These are images based on internal Microsoft slides for the Lumia 650. While they still aren't official, the renders will indeed be highly reflective of what the actual product will look like when it comes out.
It appears that the new device adds up on the professional aspect compared to its predecessors, the Lumia 640 and the Lumia 640 XL, which were also marked as business-class devices by Microsoft earlier this year. It comes with metal sides as well as a thin profile, giving it an edgy, premium overall look.
As far as the specifications go, the Lumia 650 will come with a 5-inch 720p touchscreen display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 chipset with a 1.3 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU, and Adreno 304 GPU plus 1GB of RAM. There's an 8MP primary shooter with LED flash taking care of the photography business, and there's a 5MP front-facing snapper for video calls and selfies.
It is also interesting to note that the Lumia 650 will have support for X5 LTE as well as 1080p Full HD video playback. Other features include dual-SIM support, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, HD Voice, Wi-Fi calling, and Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 that will enable devices to charge from 0 percent to 60 percent in 30 minutes.
