Microsoft Lumia 650 Is Expected To Launch Early Than Expected

Microsoft is expected to unveil its upcoming Lumia 650 series of smartphones on February 1 “with little fuss,” as per the sources related to the company’s plans. The smartphone was initially expected to release at the Mobile World Congress, but it appears we won’t have to wait pretty so long.

Lumia 650 will be a mid-range smartphone that runs Windows 10 Mobile OS. The device is anticipated to sport a 5 inches 720p display, 1GB of RAM storage, a Snapdragon 212 or 210 chipset, 8MP primary camera, and 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot.

Unlike other mid-range handsets in the Lumia series, the Lumia 650 is anticipated to have a high-end look and feel, with a metal frame and matte-finish plastic back cover that’ll be available in black/white variations – as seen in the leaked images.

The handset is expected to have its official launching ceremony at the Mobile World Congress, which starts on February 22; but sources of Windows Central are saying that official launch will happen on February 1.

On the other hand, the company isn’t expected to launch any other handsets along with Lumia 650, and there are rumors that this is going to be the only smartphone in the Lumia series of 2016. Some reports say, this could be the last Lumia smartphone ever.

Recent reports claim that, Microsoft will rather concentrate on the upcoming series of smartphones that’ll be launched under the brand “Surface.”

We’re not anticipating a press conference or keynote for the Lumia 650; reports say that the smartphone launch will happen on the Microsoft blog.
