950 and Lumia
950 XL, later this year, Microsoft will likely
release several other Windows 10 Mobile handsets. One of them seems to be the Lumia 550.
reported, the Lumia 550 should be an entry-level
device. WM Power User today revealed four press renders that allegedly show
four color variants of the new Lumia: black, blue, white, and red. The handset
doesn't look too different from older cheap Lumia models (including the Lumia 540 that was introduced earlier this year), but we didn't
really expect it to.
It's said that the Microsoft Lumia 550 sports a
4.7-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz
Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor. Other features allegedly include LTE
connectivity, 1 GB of RAM, a 1.2 MP front-facing camera, a 5 MP rear camera,
and 8 GB of expandable storage space. The new smartphone should be available in
single SIM and dual SIM versions.
Microsoft may plan to announce the Lumia 550 in
October. The Redmond company already scheduled a Windows 10-related event for October 6, though this might bring us just the high-end Lumia
950 and 950 XL. But we'll see what happens.
