Microsoft launches Lumia 650 with Windows 10 for £150

Microsoft has announced that the Lumia 650, its latest Windows 10 Mobile, will be available for purchase in select European markets from February 18 for £150, with matte black and matte white color variants on offer.

Lumia 650 comes with Windows 10 OS along with Skype-integration, enterprise security, an all-metal frame and a 5-inch OLED display.

Measuring just 6.9mm in width, Lumia 650 is the thinnest Windows 10 device till date, bettering the likes of Lumia 950 and 950 XL and the cheaper Lumia 550.

In terms of specs, there is no variance between the single-SIM and dual-SIM versions. Lumia 650 comes with a 5-inch OLED display, 8MP and 5MP cameras, a quad-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 212 processor, 16GB of internal storage and a 2,000 mAh battery.


There’s also a microSD slot which can accommodate up to 200GB of additional storage.

Just like any other Windows 10 phones, Lumia 650 comes pre-loaded with Windows Creative Studio, Excel, OneDrive, OneNote, Photos Add-Ins, Skype, Word and PowerPoint apps.

Lumia 650 will be available for purchase starting February 18 for £150 – £160.
