Cases for the unannounced Microsoft Lumia 850 leak
With a nickname of "Honjo," the unannounced Microsoft Lumia 850 is said to be on the way to consumers. A couple of weeks ago, a new render of the device appeared carrying the latest rumored specs of the phone. That includes a 5.7-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 617 SoC is expected under the hood, carrying an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU.

Today, a few cases designed for the Lumia 850 have leaked, giving us another look at the phone. From what we can see of the Lumia 850 inside the cases, the design appears to match the render we showed you a couple of weeks ago. While earlier rumors called for the Lumia 850 to be released before the end of this year, it now looks like an early 2016 launch for the handset.

The Lumia 850 will feature a rear-facing camera with a Nexus 5X hump, and there is a round speaker grill found on the lower left of the back. The phone will measure 6.92mm thick, and the volume rocker and power button can be found on the right side of the device.

Check out the cases for the Lumia 850, pictured in Blue, Green and Black, by clicking on the slideshow below.

Thanks for the tip!

Looks like a good phone. If it is priced reasonably, it might end up being my next phone.

Looks nice, though I'm not sure if I'm ready to return to windows just yet. As much as I liked the OS, the lack of apps was quite annoying

They should have used the Snapdragon 650 or 652 instead of the 617. The rest of the phone looks good, though!

if they will use sd652 in it and 12mp camera with 1.55um pixel then I will surely buy it.

Wasn't it supposed to have a front-facing flash? (https://twitter.com/evleaks/status/67280940307515​3920)

Folks I hope that Microsoft Makes a MS Lumia Windows 10 Mobile "Continuum" capable smartphone
that costs hundreds of Dollars less than the 600 plus dollars that the Microsoft Lumia 950/950XL.
This would be a great thing for expanding the sales of Windows 10 mobile smart phones
