Windows 10-powered Lumia 550 leaks out in official press renders
The Microsoft Lumia 550 is one of the five devices that Microsoft is expected to unveil on October 6th. As you may already know, the Redmond, Washington software outfit bought Nokia Devices and Services from Nokia Oyj, Finland in 2014 and also took the naming rights to the Lumia smartphone brand.
Even though we’ve been seeing supposed pictures of the upcoming Lumia 550 ever before now, the new ones we just laid our hands on today has been the clearest. The picture was sent in by no other than the leak master himself: Evan Blass.
Speaking on what the Lumia 550 is packing, the smartphone is expected carry a 5″ HD Corning Gorilla Glass 3 touchscreen. Since Microsoft has removed “Mobile” from the Windows mobile naming system (ie Windows Phone 8), the Lumia 550 should be running on Windows 10 OS although you shouldn’t expect the full PC features on your phone just because the OS is called Windows 10.
The Lumia 550 will be powered by an LTE-enabled Snapdragon 210 processor manufactured by Californian semiconductor producer Qualcomm. The chipset is clubbed with a 1.1GHz quad-core CPU as well as 1GB of RAM and expandable 8GB of in-built storage. There will be a 5MP autofocus camera alongside a LED flash and 2MP front facing camera on board the phone. The handset is also beloved to be packing a $120 price tag in some places.
On the D day, Microsoft is expected to also announce the high end Lumia 950 and its oversized sibling, the Lumia 950 XL. The firm will also launch a new Surface Pro tablet and a sequel to last year’s Microsoft Band smart wearable at the event.
