The Lumia device that we are talking about it the often leaked nowadays the upcoming Lumia 650. The upcoming handset is said to feature a simple and contemporary design the plainly follows the Lumia concept but with a hint of premium build through its metallic frame. The back covers looks to be removable which will then give users access to its battery compartment. While the handset comes is undoubtedly premium looks, the spec’s will tell you otherwise.

The Lumia 650 comes with a little larger 5-inch HD display with 720 x 1280 resolutions. Under the hood, the Lumia 650 will be featuring the old Snapdragon 200/210 chipset with 4-core CPU. there is only 1 GB of RAM and a minimal 8 GB of expandable storage. It will be running Windows 10 Mobile obviously and is the fourth device from Microsoft to boot Windows 10 Mobile out of the box.
