Microsoft Lumia 550 finally available for pre-order
Microsoft’s latest entry-level smartphone, the Lumia 550, unveiled in early October, is finally available for pre-order.
Priced at $137 and thus being the most affordable 4G LTE handset from Microsoft to date, the Lumia 550 will be officially available in December. However, A UK-based retailer has already listed it on their website and started taking pre-orders.
Microsoft Lumia 550 is a 4.7-inch smartphone with a 1280 x 720 resolution display. It’s powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor clocked at 1.1 GHz, accompanied by 1 GB of RAM. Nearly half of the 8 GB of on-board storage is taken by the Windows 10 operating system. Fortunately, the handset comes with a micro-SD card slot, allowing to increase the amount of storage space up to 128 GB.
The device features a 5 MP main camera with LED flash, as well as a 2 MP selfie snapper on the front. Inside the polycarbonate chassis there’s also a 2,100 mAh battery.
