Another canceled Microsoft Lumia smartphone gets shown off in hands-on video


Microsoft's mobile division is a thing of the past, but many Windows Phone fans still own some of the handsets the Redmond-based company launched on the market in 2015 or 2016. However, since it decided to sell its mobile business to HMD Global, Microsoft had to cut some of the phones it planned to release at some point.

Two Lumia smartphones that were leaked previous to their official announcement had been canceled: Lumia 750 and Lumia 850. Both mid-range handsets were very close to being released, but for some reason, Microsoft decided that it's not worth the trouble.

Although we knew just about everything related to the phones' specs, we never had the pleasure of seeing them in action. One year later, a hands-on video showing the Lumia 750 leaks from China, so Windows Phone fans can now see what they've been missing.

Codenamed Guilin, the Lumia 750 was a mid-range smartphone at that time. With just 1GB RAM and 8GB of expandable storage, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210/212 processor inside, the price had to be really small to pique anyone's interest.

The rest of the smartphone's specs include a 5-inch HD (720p) display, two 5-megapixel cameras on the back and front sides, along with a 2,020 mAh battery.

Design-wise, there's nothing really out of the ordinary about the Lumia 750. It looks exactly like the average Windows Phone handsets launched by Microsoft since it purchased Nokia's mobile division.
