This is the FCC label that will appear on the dual SIM version of the Microsoft Lumia 650

Back on January 8th, we told you that the Microsoft Lumia 650 had paid a trip to the FCC. At the time, we wrote that this was model RM-1152, a single SIM version of the handset. We also mentioned that there was another variant of the phone using the model number RM-1154, and that this was a dual SIM version of the device. Well, we can now tell you that the dual SIM model has also been cleared by the FCC.

Outside of the dual SIM capabilities, we expect the RM-1154 to have the same specs as the single SIM version. That means that the phone will feature a 5-inch AMOLED display, and carry a 720 x 1280 resolution screen. That works out to a pixel density of 294ppi. Under the hood will be either the Snapdragon 210 SoC, or the Snapdragon 212 SoC. Both chipsets feature a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 304 GPU. A 2000mAh battery keeps the generator humming, and the phone does come with support for the Lumia Glance Screen. An 8MP camera will be on the back of the handset, while a 5MP front-facing camera will handle selfies and video chats. A microSD slot is on board.

Apparently the Lumia 650 will be getting a larger screened 5.4-inch sibling. Yesterday, we told you that the Microsoft Lumia 650 XL is expected to be replacing the cancelled Microsoft Lumia 850. Most of the specs remain the same, although we do expect to see a larger capacity battery to power the bigger screen.

The Lumia 650 and the Lumia 650 XL could both be unveiled on February 15th. The Lumia 650 is designed to be a low cost business handset for companies to pass out to employees, and should be priced at the equivalent of $320 USD.

Hmm this smart phone's specs are such that I would buy a used Nokia lumia icon/930before I would buy this smart phone and folks it has no Continuum mode. this is a good feature. Microsoft needs to sell Continuum class smart phones at this price point for it to lure people to buy Windows 10 mobile smart phones.

the article said they expect the 650 XL to have the same specs as the 650
but that may not be so. this smart phone may be for consumers so it may have a better Camera to attract buyers.
