Latest leak points to a slew of brilliant photos, color schemes and specifications of the upcoming Microsoft Lumia 850 smartphone.
Credible tipster Evan Blass of @evleaks fame says, the mid-ranger Lumia 850 has been codenamed “Honjo.” The image leaked by him shows the handset in pristine white color with a flashy Microsoft logo implanted at the rear.
The icing on the cake, however, is the front-facing flash to capture killer selfies. While predecessor Lumia 830 came with sharp corners, the live image of successor shows rounded edges. In many ways, the exterior design resembles the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, according to GSM Arena.
Going by the leaked images, Microsoft has removed the conventional capacitive keys under the display and the physical shutter button has no place either. Meanwhile, another GSM Arena report citing Baidu said the upcoming Lumia 850 will have four color schemes.
The traditional white and black colored front and black panels will be accented with a combination of gold, rose gold, steel and copper frames. To be specific, the devices with white panels will apparently get gold or rose gold accents, whereas the black shelled variants will flaunt copper-colored sides or a plain steel accompaniment.
Furthermore, earlier reports pointed to a 5.0-inch display, HD resolution, Snapdragon 410 processor, 1 GB of RAM and 10-megapixel PureView camera as the Lumia 850 specifications. But now, according to the new report, the upcoming mid-ranger will carry a 5.7-inch display, aided by a Full HD resolution.
Under the hood, the smartphone will reportedly be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 617 SoC. Comparing the two versions of rumor and taking the predecessor Lumia 830 into account, it’s easy to say the recent report looks like the real deal. In any case, readers are advised to take the rumored Lumia 850 specifications with the proverbial pinch of salt as Microsoft has not confirmed any details thus far.
Here is the purported image of the Lumia 850 in white color:
