Leaked Lumia 650 spec summary

Published by at

The evidence for the existence of a Lumia 650 has been growing and growing, with a number of mentions in a recent interview and numerous image and FCC leaks. So I thought I'd summarise the known specifications, compared to the existing Lumia 550, its sister budget Windows 10 Mobile smartphone. As to an announcement, MWC 2016 at the end of February is pretty much a shoe in....

The specs, as leaked so far, include:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chipset
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB storage plus microSD
  • LTE support
  • Wi-fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1
  • 5" 720p LCD display (c.f. 4.7" on the Lumia 550)
  • 2000 mAh battery (2100mAh on the Lumia 550)
  • Qi wireless charging (none on the Lumia 550)
  • 8MP rear camera, 720p video capture (c.f. 5MP on the Lumia 550)
  • Virtual Windows controls
  • Front facing mono speaker (rear on the Lumia 550)

Although the spec bump over the 550 is minimal, the metal surround (and Qi charging) should add an air of 'premium' to the 650 and keep it around the £100 mark in the UK on pay-as-you-go, while the all plastic 550 sinks to new budget lows.

Look for this to be announced at MWC next month.
