Microsoft Lumia 850 renders appear online
According to @OnLeaks, the Lumia 850 or 850 XL is still in development at Microsoft. The smartphone is expected to be similar in size to the 950 XL and may thus carry a 5.7-inch display.
The first renders of the Lumia 850 are provided below from a "trusted source" close to OnLeaks. The Windows logo, protruding camera, and smooth back are unmistakably of Lumia origin. The notch on the back of the smartphone suggests that the back cover is removable, so users can swap out the battery as needed.
Despite the large size and potential metal frame, previous reports have been claiming mainstream level hardware. This includes the entry-level Snapdragon 410 SoC, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB eMMC with MicroSD support, and a display resolution of 1280 x 720 or 1280 x 768 pixels. Launch dates and pricing information are still unknown at this time.
