Early this December, @OnLeaks, a Twitter account known for leaking accurate information on yet to be announced devices, leaked what he claims are renders of the metal-clad Microsoft Lumia 850 based on sketches sent by a source. The renders showed a hump for the rear-facing camera. Now, a new render has been leaked, which gives us a better look at the device.
New leaked Microsoft Lumia 850 render
The render above, which seems to be a press render of the Microsoft Lumia 850, was leaked by Evan Blass (popularly known as @evleaks on Twitter). Aside from leaking the render, Blass also reveals that the device is known internally as “Honjo.”
According to past reports, the Microsoft Lumia 850 is expected to sport a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. This means that the screen will have a pixel density of 386 ppi. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC, which is an octa-core processor with eight Cortex A53 cores clocked as much as 1.7 GHz and an Adreno 405 to handle graphics. The render of the front of the device seems to show a front-facing LED flash and an infrared scanner. The Lumia 850 will reportedly be 6.92 mm-thin and will be clad in metal for that more premium look and feel. The gold coloured Microsoft logo on the back of the device also makes the device look more luxurious. Other specs and details are yet to be determined at this point, but it’s a dead cert that the device will run Windows 10 out of the box.
Normally, leaked renders are an indication that a device will make its official debut soon. Despite this, there is still a possibility that Microsoft will cancel the device, if a few reports are to be believed. Here’s hoping that the software giant decides to introduce the smartphone instead of cancelling it.
