Microsoft Lumia 650 – Is it going to be the last of the Lumia phones?


Microsoft has been a company which has been coming out with some of the hottest releases in recent times.

The company has been coming out with a large number of software devices over the past 40 glorious years of their existence, and have recently started off in a whole new direction – hardware technology!

Microsoft, an undisputed champion when it comes to software technology, has now started tapping into the markets of hardware, and truth be told, they have not been doing quite a decent job at it.

Microsoft’s XBOX devices were good at first, but then in the second year they received a major beating from the PS4, as the company, with 19 million devices sold so far, remains beaten fair and square by the PS4 with 40 million devices sold.

The surface pro 4, which is one of their rising stars, too faced a beatdown from the hands of Apple, as recent reports have indicated that in December, Apple has sold more iPad Pro devices than Microsoft has sold their Surface devices.

The company has lost out several billions of dollars on the Lumia devices, as the Microsoft Mobile business is one of their biggest failures.

With a loss amounting over $8Bn coming to light last year, the company was then faced the problem of job cuts, as 7800 employees had to be let off.

It now looks like Microsoft is gearing up to come out with one last Lumia device – the Lumia 650, as it has reportedly already been produced in bulk.

The Lumia 650 is expected to come out with a full metal body, along with a 5.5 inched screen. The device is expected to come out with a look and feel which is unlike any other Lumia phone so far.

Running the Windows 10 OS, the Lumia 650 would be featuring 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, along with 8MP of camera in the front as well as in the back.

The phone is also expected to come out with a large, 3000mAh battery. Current speculations show that it would be running on the Snapdragon 410 SoC.

As of this moment there are no pricing details that are available, but early speculations have indicated that the phone might be priced in at $235.
