Besides top devices, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, the people at Microsoft are aware of earnings that that can be made from the more affordable smartphones. For this reason, the Redmond giant has invested a significant amount of money into bringing on the market the Lumia 550, the cheapest phone with 4G LTE which, incidentally, runs from the start on the latest operating system for mobile phones from the American company.

At the hardware level, the new device is built around a 4.7-inch display with a 720p HD screen. The housing hides a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor with 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory and a microSD slot for extra storage capacity. It has a 5 megapixel main camera and 2100 mAh replaceable battery.
