The preemptive listing confirms many previous rumors and a suggested retail price of 230 Euros.

The still-unannounced Lumia 650 has been on a roll with more frequent leaks as we move closer to MWC 2016. Amazon France recently posted the Microsoft smartphone online with the ASIN B01ARBWAKY before quickly taking down the product page.

The short-lived page confirms what many previous rumors were suggesting about the device. First, the product image shows the same metal frame as leaked by @evleaks with Black and White color options, Cat. 4 LTE, MicroSD support up to 128 GB, and a 5-inch display. Interestingly, the page did not mention the resolution of the screen, though it is likely to be 720p.

Further specifications include the expected 8 MP rear camera and a front-facing camera with no MP count listed. The battery capacity was also not explicitly mentioned, though previous rumors claim it to be 2000 mAh. Amazon France had the device on sale for 230 Euros, so a 200 to 250 USD price range seems likely when it comes stateside.

The Lumia 650 is expected to be revealed this coming MWC 2016 alongside the mainstream Lumia 850. Both models will complement the flagship Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, though the future of Windows smartphones may be in jeopardy according to the latest rumors and financial results from Microsoft.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
