According to rumours, Microsoft will unveil its next smartphone in the coming days, a follow-up to the mid-range Lumia 640 announced at last year’s Mobile World Congress.

Originally tipped for a February 1st announcement, reputable device leaker Evan Blass has revealed the final design of the Windows 10 Mobile-powered Lumia 650. This is reportedly the last Lumia the company will produce, and details minor changes to its predecessor, though the phone’s specs remain entry-level.


The Lumia 650 is reported to have a 5-inch 720p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 212 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

There is no indication yet as to when Microsoft will officially announce the Lumia 650, nor if it will have support from Canadian carriers, but it may be announced at Mobile World Congress later this month.

    I’ll stick my my Lumia 1020 for now. I have that plus my old 520 which I use an iPod while doing cardio in the gym. However if I break the 1020 or if it dies, this might be an option to hold me over until the Surface phone is released.

      Hopefully by end of year, we will see the Surface Phone come out. I just hope it’s everything we’ve imagined and more. Not just design, but functionality wise…

      It’s a shame I will have to hold on to my dying 720 till we get a decent mid-end Lumia phone. 950 s too expensive and 650 is too low end for my usage 🙁
      I am hoping the rumors of 650 being last phone is false.

      Lumia is such a poisoned brand. MS will kill it just to get off the stink of failure. Mark my words Zune phone is going to be a thing 🙂
