After releasing the fairly high-priced Lumia 950 and 950XL, Microsoft has now set its sights on entry-level business users by adding the mid-range Lumia 650 to its Windows 10 smartphone lineup.
Touting a five-inch OLED HD display with a 1280 x 720 resolution and 16 gigabytes (GB) of internal storage, which can be expanded to up to 200GB through its micro SD card slot, the handset will carry a 230-euro price tag (around 250 dollars) in Germany.
The phone also comes with an 8-megapixel main rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing equivalent, which can be used for video chats and selfies. The LTE-ready device will be powered by an entry-level 32-bit quad-core Snapdragon 212 processor with 1.3 gigahertz and a user-replaceable battery.
The casing of the 122-gram Lumia 650 features an aluminium frame. Unlike its flagship handsets, which include a new USB type C port, Microsoft only equipped its latest device with a micro USB 2.0 port for charging and synchronization, making it incompatible with the Continuum app and Microsoft’s own Display Dock.
