AT&T’s subsidiary Cricket Wireless will apparently sell the latest Windows 10 Mobile-powered Microsoft Lumia 650 smartphone.
Predecessor Lumia 640 was initially offered by Cricket Wireless in the U.S. before other carriers started selling the device. Following the same trend, Cricket will offer the Lumia 650 shortly. This news has been confirmed via the official Windows Blog of Microsoft, where the company has added a PDF link titled “Lumia 650 User Guide Cricket.”
Speaking of Lumia 650 release date, GSM Arena says, this handset could hit the store shelves in April. However, there’s no confirmation available to ascertain which other carrier will be selling this mid-ranger.
Microsoft will apparently release the Lumia 650 in Matte Black and Matte White hues. This device will set the buyers back by roughly $199, before local taxes and subsidies.
Spec-wise, the Lumia 640 successor features a pocket-friendly 5.0-inch OLED display and 720p screen resolution. It comes with a “highly polished, diamond cut and anodized aluminum frame, giving it an unparalleled and premium feel.” The device is only 6.9 mm thick and it weighs just 122 g.
When it comes to camera configuration, an 8-megapixel main sensor and a generous 5-megapixel front-facing snapper have been mounted on the handset. It comes equipped with 16 GB of built-in storage space and microSD card slot for further expansion.
Under the hood, a quad-core (Snapdragon 212) processor, running at 1.3 GHz, powers the phone. It runs on Windows 10 Mobile out of the box.
The Lumia 650 comes backed by a modest 1 GB of RAM. The entire configuration will be powered by a modest 2,000 mAh removable battery cell.
