Microsoft reveals the mid-range Lumia 650

ms-lumia-650After much speculation and leaks, Microsoft has finally revealed the Lumia 650 in preparation for its booth at MWC 2016. The mid-range device is aimed for businesses as an affordable alternative to the Lumia 950 series.

In equivalent to the iPhone 6, the phone is only 6.9mm thick, and weight in at 122gram.

With the price tag of $199, the specification that we have here is quite on par. On the surface, we have an AMOLED HD display, at 1280 x 720 (29ppi); protected by Gorilla Glass 3. Underneath is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 212, clocks at 1300MHz, with 1GB of RAM. We also have 16GB of internal storage (expandable via Micro SD card). In the optical department, the phone bears an eight-megapixel camera on its rear, with 2x digital zoom and 2.2 aperture and a single LED flash. Turn around to the front, we have a 5MP wide-angle lens, with the same aperture and 720p recording. Everything is powered by a 2000MAh battery. Other common features of Lumia devices like Glance Screen and Tactile Feedback, are present as well.


The phone will go on sale in the selected Europe market starting Febuary 15th.
