Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 10 Mobile-powered handset Lumia 650 is back in news with a slew of impressive official-looking renders.
Windows Central with the help of Phone Designer has come up with stunning renders of the Microsoft Lumia 650, also known internally as Saana. As it turns out, these renders have been created based on the “internal Microsoft slides” specific to this handset.
Even though, the images cannot be deemed as official, they reportedly resemble the original device to a great extent. In the site’s own words -- the images are “highly reflective of the final product.”
Going by the images, it is crystal clear that the Lumia 650’s sides will be covered by a solid metal frame. The images show the handset in standard white and black hues, similar to the Lumia 950 series.
Meanwhile, the Lumia 650 release date has been pegged for early 2016, between January and February. This device will apparently be marketed as an entry-level business-focused handset for companies. In other words, it will be a “premium budget phone.” The same site also says, AT&T’s Cricket Wireless will offer the Lumia 650 from April 2016 onwards.
As far as the Lumia 650 specifications go, the handset is rumored to come with a 5.0-inch display and 720p screen resolution. Under the hood, it will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 212 chip, working in tandem with a quad-core Cortex-A7 processor, running at 1.3 GHz. The graphics side of things will be taken care by Adreno 304 GPU and the device will be backed by a modest 1 GB of RAM.
When it comes to camera specification, the smartphone will apparently come equipped with an 8-megapixel rear-facing sensor with LED flash and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter for selfies. Apart from the reported 8 GB native storage space, the handset will provide an option to expand further via microSD card.
As always, readers are advised to take the reported Lumia 650-related information with the proverbial pinch of salt as Microsoft has not confirmed any details thus far.
