Lumia 650 rumoured to be the last 5-inch device made by Microsoft

Microsoft has lifted the lid on its two new high-end smartphones – the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL, as well as its most affordable Windows 10-powered device – the Lumia 550. We’ve also heard that the software giant is cooking up another affordable device – the Lumia 650 (code named Saana). Sadly, according to a tweet, the Lumia 650 may be the last 5-inch device to made by Microsoft.

The tweet comes from known tipster @sleaknow. Here’s the tweet:

According to the tweet the Lumia 650 could be the last 5-inch Lumia smartphone to be made by Microsoft. The tweet also reveals that the smartphone will feature a “metal edge” just like its predecessor the Lumia 640. The problem here is that the Lumia 640 doesn’t feature a metal edge, which means you should take this information with a pinch of salt.

Aside from the questionable metal edge, not much is known about the Lumia 650. It is yet to be determined what features the device has to offer or hardware the smartphone comes with under the hood. The only thing we know that is likely to be on board the device is a 5-inch screen.

Since almost nothing is known about the Lumia 650, let us look back at the specs of its predecessor. The Lumia 640 sports a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels (HD). Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC, which is a quad-core processor with each core clocked at 1.2 GHz, coupled with 1 GB of RAM. It features 8 GB of internal storage, but, if this isn’t enough, it does come with a microSD card slot. An 8-megapixel rear-facing camera is on board along with a 1-megapixel front-facing camera that may not be ideal for snapping selfies but will do with video chats.

Based on the Lumia 640’s specs, the Lumia 650 could come with a more powerful processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and upgraded cameras. If it does exist, it’s a dead cert that the device will run Windows 10 out of the box.

So when will we get to see the Lumia 650 make its official debut? Sadly, this is yet to be determined.
