Lumia 550 leaked - bargain price smartphone
Some images of the new Microsoft Lumia 550 smartphone have leaked, and we're getting an idea of the specs of the affordable handset
Microsoft has a whole bunch of smartphones on the way carrying the Lumia brand it inherited from Nokia. And they're mostly positioned at the upper end of the power and price scale so it's good to be hearing about a more affordable offering.
Images for the Lumia 550 have leaked and been confirmed as legitimate by a couple of different sources. That still doesn't mean that they're actually real though. Here's a glimpse.
This is the Bright Blue version, it also comes in White, Bright Red and Black - at least according to these leaks. Previously we've heard a good bit about the potentail specs of the new device, which could include a 4.7 inch AMOLED screen, removeable SD storage and a 1.1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad core chip.
The best news is that the Lumia 550 could retail for just €120, which makes it a very decent phone for the price, despite rather low end specs. Microsoft has a habit of including impressive camera on most of its models and the 550 could even include a front-facing flash, making it an ideal offering for the youths out there.
There's no release date yet for the Lumia 500, more as we get it.
