Microsoft today announced the Lumia 650, a $199 Windows 10 handset that bridges the gap between the entry-level Lumia 550 and the pricer Lumia 950 / 950 XL. The Lumia 650 boasts an aluminum frame, slim profile, and high-quality glass. The phone has a 5-inch 720p AMOLED panel with ClearBlack technology and wide viewing angles. The phone is powered by a quad-core, 1.3 GHz Snapdragon 212 processor with 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. The Lumia 650 includes an 8-megapixel main camera and 5-megapixel wide-angle front camera for enhanced selfies. Both lenses have an aperture of f/2.2. The main camera has an LED flash, but video capture is limited to 720p HD. The Windows 10 platform includes Microsoft Office, OneDrive, OneNote, Cortana, and business-grade security features, as well as Xbox compatibility. The Lumia 650 packs Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, and WiFi. The published spec sheet suggests LTE support is limited to bands 1, 3, 7, 8, and 20, meaning it isn't necessarily compatible with US networks. Microsoft's web site does, however, link to a user manual for a Cricket-branded version of the Lumia 650. Microsoft expects to ship the Lumia 650 to select European markets beginning February 18 for about $199.
