Microsoft released a slew of Lumia lineup of devices in October, including the Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL and the Lumia 550. Now, a new tweet from a credible tipster said that the Microsoft Lumia 650 will be the last Lumia series to carry a 5.0-inch display.
According to @sleaknow, the long-rumored Lumia 650, tied to the model name “Saana” and model number “RM-1152,” could be the final 5-incher under the brand Lumia. The upcoming device is an entry-level handset from Microsoft.
Even though, the tweet did not give any configuration details out, an earlier rumor picked up by WMPowerUser has key Lumia 650 specifications listed. According to the site, the upcoming smartphone will feature a 5-inch display with 720 x 1,280 pixels resolution.
Under the hood, the handset will reportedly come powered by a Qualcomm MSM8909 Snapdragon 210 processor. Microsoft is believed to house a 2000 mAh battery unit to keep the lights on. Plus, the device will apparently have Glance Screen support and there will be no dedicated camera button.
To top it all off, this entry-level smartphone will have no microSD card slot for further expansion. Meanwhile, Phone Arena said that this handset is expected to run the latest Windows 10 Mobile, straight out of the box.
In comparison, the predecessor Lumia 640 comes with the same screen size and resolution as the successor. However, under the hood, the handset uses a Snapdragon 400 SoC with a quad-core processor and 1 GB of RAM. There is no expandable storage option and the device comes equipped with a good 2,500 battery unit.
