Microsoft has been a company which has been around the markets of technology for quite a long time now.
The company has been coming out with a large number of updates and upgrades, and has been changing the way things function in the world of technology.
They have been updating their systems with a large number of new and improved devices and have changed the game in the industry at large.
Microsoft, which has traditionally been a giant in the world of software technology is now moving towards the markets of hardware technology, and has been doing well there too.
The company has been making slow advances towards the markets of hardware, and has now managed to bring around quite a few products.
However, their biggest hopes back when they started were from the Microsoft Mobiles, which was their most ambitious project.
Despite all the effort and the money that went behind the mobile phones division, Microsoft mobiles was a division which never actually took flight.
The Lumia phones that the company has been continuing were considered dead on arrival, and the market demand was hitting rock bottom.
The company has now decided that they will no longer continue with this dreaded Lumia phones business, and while the Microsoft Mobiles at large is not shutting down, it is certain that Microsoft is now done with their Lumia phones business.
With losses of over $7.6 Billion, the company does need to re-think their strategy, and they need to rethink it real quick. To top that off, the sales of Lumia phones have fallen over 50% in the last one year.
Microsoft is now done with the Lumia business, and is likely to release one last Lumia device – the Microsoft Lumia 650. The phone is expected to feature a 5.5 inched screen, along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.
The device carries a Snapdragon 410 SoC processor, and runs the latest version of the Windows 10 Mobile OS out of the box. The Lumia 650 also features an 8MP front camera as well as an 8MP back camera.
The device is also expected to release alongside a Lumia 650 ‘XL’ device, which is basically the Lumia 850, which has been renamed by the company to get one last release.
The XL variant of the phone is likely to release with a 5.7 inched screen, and a larger battery, along with a series-600 processor from Snapdragon, as well as 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The camera, too is expected to be bumped up.
The devices are expected to be released in March.
