Microsoft tipped to announce Lumia 650 in February

Microsoft is expected to announce the business-focused Lumia 650 in February, which will reportedly run Windows 10.

Windows 10 has been embraced by a large number of PC and tablet users, but if you want to utilise it on mobile your only choices are the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL. That looks set to change in February with the rumoured announcement of the Lumia 650.

A report from Windows Central say that the device will be launched on February 1st. But there may be “little fanfare” for the Lumia 650, as it will be aimed primarily at business users.

The Lumia 650 is said to feature a 5-inch 720p display, a Snapdragon 210 or 212 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of on-board storage, a 5MP front-facing camera, and an 8MP rear-facing camera.

This could be the last handset to bear the Lumia name. According to the report, the Lumia 750 and Lumia 850 have been cancelled. We may instead see a premium handset released under the Surface brand later this year.
