Microsoft Lumia 550 press renders leak out
Besides the long-rumored Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, later this year, Microsoft will likely release several other Windows 10 Mobile handsets. One of them seems to be the Lumia 550.

As previously reported, the Lumia 550 should be an entry-level device. WM Power User today revealed four press renders that allegedly show four color variants of the new Lumia: black, blue, white, and red. The handset doesn't look too different from older cheap Lumia models (including the Lumia 540 that was introduced earlier this year), but we didn't really expect it to.

It's said that the Microsoft Lumia 550 sports a 4.7-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor. Other features allegedly include LTE connectivity, 1 GB of RAM, a 1.2 MP front-facing camera, a 5 MP rear camera, and 8 GB of expandable storage space. The new smartphone should be available in single SIM and dual SIM versions.

Microsoft may plan to announce the Lumia 550 in October. The Redmond company already scheduled a Windows 10-related event for October 6, though this might bring us just the high-end Lumia 950 and 950 XL. But we'll see what happens.
