In addition to the long-rumored flagship Microsoft Lumia 950 and the jumbo sibling Lumia 950 XL, the tech giant will apparently be releasing a slew of Windows 10 based smartphones later this year. One such device is the entry-level handset, called “Microsoft Lumia 550.”
Alleged renders of the Microsoft Lumia 550 have been unearthed by WMPowerUser, showcasing the handset in four colors namely Black, Blue, White and Red. Going by the leaked images, the upcoming Lumia handset does not look very different from the other entry-level handsets from Microsoft. The Lumia 550 is the successor of the well-received Lumia 540.
As far as the key Lumia 550 specifications go, the device will apparently come with a pocket-friendly 4.7-inch AMOLED display, aided by a solid 720 x 1,280 pixels screen resolution. Under the hood, the handset will be powered by a quad-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 210) processor, clocked at 1.2 GHz and backed by 1 GB of RAM.
When it comes to camera specification, Phone Arena reported that the Lumia 550 will sport a 5-megapixel rear-facing sensor, in addition to a 1.2-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies. Furthermore, the phone is believed to come equipped with 8 GB of built-in storage space and microSD card slot for further expansion.
The icing on the cake, however, is the support for LTE connectivity on the entry-level device. Microsoft will apparently make the Lumia 550 available as both single SIM and dual SIM variants.
Speaking of Lumia 550 release date, Microsoft is expected to make an October debut for the device. Meanwhile, the Windows 10 OS will reportedly be released on Oct. 6, alongside the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL.
