Microsoft plans three budget Lumia smartphones

We know that Microsoft plans to release the high-end Lumia 940 and Lumia 940XL smartphones later this year but the tech giant plans at least three more models. These ones will be called Lumia 550, Lumia 750 and Lumia 850 and they will serve the mid-range market where they will compete with other mid-range smartphones.

The preliminary specs of the phones are now available. According to this information the Lumia 550 will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 (MSMM8909) processor with four Cortex-A7 cores at 1 GHz, Adreno 304 graphics, a 5-inch display at 960 x 540 pixels, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot for expansion, one 5 MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash and another front 2 MP camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA, a GPS receiver and a 1905 mAh battery as well as various sensors.

The Lumia 750 will be a bit more powerful – the handset will rely on a Snapdragon 410 (MSMM8916) processor with four Cortex-A53 cores at 1.2 GHz and will have Adreno 306 graphics, a 5-inch display at 1280 x 720 pixels, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot for expansion, one rear 8 MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus and LED flash, one front camera at 5 MP, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a GPS receiver, various sensors and a 2650 mAh battery.

The Lumia 850 will be the best of the three – it will have a Snapdragon 410 (MSMM8916) processor with four Cortex-A53 cores at 1.4 GHz, Adreno 306 graphics, a 5-inch display at 1280 x 768 pixels, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot for expansion, one rear 10 MP camera with Zeiss optics, autofocus, LED flash and 1080p video recording, another 5 MP front camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0, a GPS receiver, various sensors and a 2650 mAh battery.

The release dates and the prices of these smartphones are unknown at the moment, though.

P.S. Apparently these devices will never come out as they have been cancelled. They do exist, however, but they are used by Microsoft for internal Windows 10 Mobile testing. Now, that’s a bummer.
