The chassis is expected to be very similar to the current Lumia 550 series and with a retail price of around 200 Euros.

Right off the heels of the recent Lumia 850 leak comes the Lumia 650 and its own share of leaks. Purported press images of the Lumia 650 came to light late last December courtesy of Windows Central, but the latest images from @evleaks show the smartphone with just a black metal frame and no White option. The Lumia 650 LTE was spotted last week at an online UK retailer for a brief period showing core technical details and a price of 200 Pounds.

The Lumia 650 is expected to come with a 5-inch HD display, a 1.1 GHz Snapdragon 210 or Snapdragon 212 SoC, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB eMMC with MicroSD support up to 128 GB, 8 MP rear camera, 2000 mAh battery, and a weight of 150 grams. There is a good chance that the smartphone will be revealed this coming MWC 2016 alongside the mainstream Lumia 850.

Microsoft's future in the smartphone business is currently at a crossroads. The company's latest financial results show its smartphone sales plummeting during the last quarter while rumors from well-known Windows blogger Paul Thurrott claim that most of the Lumia team members have been absorbed into the more successful Surface group. Despite the limited commercial success of the Lumia series, the current 950 and 950 XL flagships have been praised for their quality and hardware.

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.
