Microsoft Lumia 550 could feature 4.7-inch screen, SD-210, 1GB RAM, 5MP rear camera and Windows 10

Microsoft Lumia 550 could feature 4.7-inch screen, SD-210, 1GB RAM, 5MP rear camera and Windows 10
Back in May, a 4.7-inch Microsoft Lumia handset with the model number RM-1127 was discovered on the Zauba website that tracks imports and exports into and out of India. Two variants of the phone were eventually discovered, one with a single SIM slot and the other with dual SIM capabilities (RM-1128). Keeping with the premise that this is a low to mid-range model, it appears to be the Microsoft Lumia 550. That model has just been leaked out of a database belonging to a Microsoft distributor.

Like the previous leaks of the RM-1127 and RM-1128 models on Zauba and GFXBench, the Lumia 550 has that aforementioned 4.7-inch screen and 8GB of native storage. Specs for the Lumia 550 that surfaced during the summer include a resolution of 720 x 1280 (or possibly 540 x 960) for the display. The handset is powered by the Snapdragon 210 chipset, and there is 1GB of RAM inside. A 5MP camera adorns the back of the unit, and a 1.2MP snapper graces the front of the handset.

The Lumia 550 supports 4G LTE connectivity, and will come with Windows 10 Mobile pre-installed. The rumored price of the phone is in the neighborhood of $120. We could see the Microsoft Lumia unveiled as soon as October 6th when the software giant is holding a media event to announce a number of new Windows 10 Mobile flavored handsets, and the Surface Pro 4.

You know that the 550 is low end device right?

So do you think the 550 worth $120 when Lenovorola can put better hardware inside their Moto G series and in the same time keep the price very affordable.

Lol... My Lumia 535 with SD200 left a Nexus 5 user and an iphone 6 user saying: "wow that thing is more fluid than mine...Is that the new Lumia with SD 808"?

Wait?! There is something lower end than the SD400 inside Android Smart watches? Lol damn Android Wear and Apple watch OS must be power hungry as hell operating systems then. What happened to Apples philosophy of software first and hardware second? The Apple watch should use this and run like butter with a stick figure UI.

Except this isn't Android or iOS. This is Windows Phone and it runs like "buttah" on a 200.

Your argument is invalid. I've seen Lumia 830 lag and stutter with SD400, so how on earth would SD210 run like "buttah"?

You obviously have no idea what "optimization" means so I won't go into it with you. Put an Evinrude 150 on a 20 footer and it runs beautiful. Put it on a 25 footer and it won't leave the dock. The article is about a Plain-Jane 550, not a Lumia 830. Change your username to ihavenobrain.

These android & iOS nerds are so stupid. Ofc, Windows runs like a buttah. The tiny dots that keep rotating when I am on resuming app screen is so smooth. Infact, I am gonna file a petition to MS to reduce the memory to 512mb Ram on this device so that the remaining 512mb Ram could be fed to african kids.

So Android and iOS snap right into place when you give a command. No lag or blank display, they just instantly open the app. If you're interested, I have a mint, one-owner bridge in New York City I'd like to show you. The current tenant has a long-term lease so you'll never have to worry about renting it out.

Yep I agree. That's why I never bragged Android and iOS would run buttery smooth on lower-end specs but guess what you claimed WP does ;) So when I pointed out it doesn't you went from WP being 'buttery smooth' to 'iOS and Android lag too' in just one comment lol.....Classic Feel free to take that foot outta your mouth now, go ahead, I'll wait.

IOS runs on nothing but low end specs. There are no high end phones running IOS.

Of course you won't open an app fast with some Android higher end phones even take time to open with a f**king low end.

If the 400 series is for smart watches, what is this meant for? Nest thermometers, tamagotchis, light bulbs, and TV remotes? What's it doing in a phone? Lol

You know that those smartwatches you say are pretty expensive like more than 300$.

they should really stop using that processor. I wanted to buy a lumia phone but the price was never justifiable for the processor, this includes all the midranges that use the 400 series.

Why don't you tell the same thing about Apple and it's ram and battery and resolution and camera and it's shity materials? And don't say because it's Apple and fans buy those phones no matter what. By the way I'm sure there's some WP phones with 410 but not from MS.

You do realize you can buy a mid range or high end lumia with better processors, right? The Lumia 1520 can be bought for around $200 now. The 550 is a low end device.

The lack of knowledge of some people is just amazing .. > They are basically equal ( less than 10% difference) ; 4xA7@1.2Ghz on the S400 vs 4xA7@1.1Ghz on the S210 , and on the GPU is 450Mhz vs 400Mhz (they have the same GPU) > The S400 is on smartwatchs but since they have a much more limited thermal dissipation it will have inferior performance ; it will only clock 1.2Ghz for a few seconds ( if ever )... > The S210 is also used on various low end android devices So please, stop the BS ..

There is a difference between lack of knowledge (ignorance) and lack of intelligence (stupidity). These nimrods are the latter and not the former.

I don't which Android devices you talking about but as far as i know the only low end devices worth to mention in Android ecosystem is nothing but the notorious Moto G series. And you can get Moto G (2nd gen) for $149.99, or Moto G (3rd gen) for $179.99 but if lucky enough problably you can get Moto G (1st gen) with even cheaper price. So i think you are the one who need to stop defending Microsoft. I hope all Windows (Ex Nokia) fanboys stop buying Lumia smartphones so it will forced Microsoft to stop making Windows phone. I just want to see Nokia return to Smartphone industry by making great Android devices.

Why you think MS should or need to compete with Moto phones why you don't mention Samsung low ends? And Windows hands are not ex Nokia fans Nokia died long time ago and it will never return cause when it return there's only a logo you can recall from it. And why you so ignorance about WP anyway troll isn't more choices the better for consumer why you even on WP news except for trolling?

Why would anyone who wanted a WP pick this up over the 640 if you have the choice, Which can be had for 50-80 bucks! & it will get Windows10. What a waste of time etc on Microsoft for even making this one! They do strange things. Unless this is just for India.. Still though then they should just make the 640 avail there.

I hope you WP fans have a good time here. Any where else no body is willing to spend extra money to acquire resources on Microsoft account. In fact they lavish on the fact that Microsoft is losing big buck on WP platform. If you guy don't realize this by now you really don't understand humanity.
