Windows 10 may have had a solid launch on desktops and tablets, but the story on phones is quite different – the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are currently the only handsets you can get running Windows 10 Mobile.
A new rumour from Windows Central says those two phones will be joined by the Lumia 650 on 1 February. Apparently there’ll be “little fanfare” for the handset, which is going to be aimed primarily at business customers.
According to sources speaking to Windows Central, the Lumia 650 will feature a 5-inch 720p display, a Snapdragon 210 or 212 processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of on-board storage. A 5MP front-facing camera and 8MP rear-facing camera complete the unofficial specs.
The end of the Lumia road
But that could be it for the Lumia line: Windows Central says both the Lumia 750 and Lumia 850 have been cancelled, which means the Lumia 650 would be the last of its breed, with Microsoft planning a low-key Mobile World Congress this year.
If Microsoft is going to continue fighting the might of Android and iOS, it looks like it’s going to be pinning its hopes on a new premium handset under the Surface brand. In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for the last of the Lumias at the start of February.
