The Lumia 650 was unveiled back in February as a business-focused, wallet-friendly mid-ranger. Now, this device can be purchased in the U.S. and Canada.
Speaking of price, the Microsoft Lumia 650 will set the buyers back by $199 in the U.S. and CAD 199 in Canada. This handset can now be ordered via Microsoft's online store. The U.S. carriers are expected to launch this smartphone soon. It is worth noting that this mid-range device is already being sold in Europe from February onwards.
As far as the key specifications go, the Microsoft Lumia 650 carries a pocket-friendly 4.97-inch ClearBlack OLED display and 1,280 x 720 pixels screen resolution. The tech giant said this device features a “highly polished, diamond cut and anodized aluminum frame, giving it an unparalleled and premium feel.” This handset is just 122 grams in weight and it is 6.9 mm thick.
Moving on to camera configuration, an 8-megapixel rear-facing sensor and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter are mounted on the Lumia 650. It comes equipped with 16 GB of native storage capacity and supports microSD card to facilitate expansion of up to 200 GB.
Under the hood, a quad-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 212) SoC, clocked at 1.3 GHz, powers the handset. It comes backed by 1 GB of RAM. On the software front, without any surprise, it runs on Windows 10 Mobile OS straight out of the box.
Not to forget, this device supports LTE, apart from the standard connectivity options. The entire configuration is powered by a modest 2,000 mAh removable battery cell. Microsoft says this cell is capable of offering up to 14 hours of 4G talk time.
