Is this the elusive Microsoft Lumia 850?
Where Google and Apple have battled fiercely for supremacy in the mobile space, Microsoft has long been on the periphery. Redmond's Lumia range has focused its attention almost squarely onto the mid-range crowd, which has in turn forced those seeking a powerful experience to look elsewhere.
Although the leaked snaps of the purported Lumia 850 likely offer a glimpse of what might have been, there's always a chance that Microsoft will release it to market. Shared by nokibar, the device is said to host a sizable 5.4-inch display, along with an iris scanner. As can be seen from the images, there's a micro USB slot, meaning no Continuum support, along with space for two SIM cards and microSD expansion.
The black device appears to be comprised of glass or the trademark glossy Lumia polycarbonate, with a rose gold-looking metallic trim around the edge.
