Microsoft Lumia 650 – The Last Of The Lumia Phones?


Microsoft has been a company which has been quite a giant in the world of technology for a very long time. However, the giant is crossing some troubled waters off late, as Microsoft has been facing a really hard time in their hardware division.

The company in the past has been known for their excellence in the markets of software technology, and when compared with its cotemporaries, Microsoft is quite a newcomer in the markets of hardware technology.

However, last year, Microsoft burst into the scene with their new range of Lumia phones, surface devices and their new fitness band. A couple of years ago, the XBOX One too, was released.

Looking at the market statistics today, the Lumia phones have been a major, major disaster for Microsoft, as the company has, by now bled out close to $8 Billion over the same, while nearly 8000 jobs have been axed over the same.

The Nokia deal never actually bore fruit for Microsoft as the company faced major losses ever since.

However, the company also faced a beatdown in the XBOX division, as Microsoft’s XBOX One sold 19Mn units worldwide by now, while the Sony PS4 sold close to 40Mn, more than twice their sales.

The latest reports have also shown that the Surface Pro 4 too, has been beaten down by Apple’s iPad Pro in the month of December in sales volumes.

Microsoft is going through some of the most troubled times, and in these times, the company is now looking forward to cut down whatever they find unnecessary. The first name on the list is the Lumia series of devices.

With the arrival of Microsoft Lumia 650 in the next few weeks, the company is likely to make the announcement that they no longer will be producing the Lumia devices.

The Lumia 650 is expected to release with a 5.5 inched screen, along with 1GB of RAM 8GB of storage. The company is expected to come out with a 3000mAh battery to power the large screen, along with a Snapdragon 410 processor.

The phone will likely feature an 8MP camera in the front as well as in the back, and it will be running on the Windows 10 Mobile OS.

The phone is not expected to feature any of the high end features like continuum, USB-C connectivity or liquid cooling which were earlier seen in the Lumia 950 series of devices.
