Microsoft Lumia 550 stars in official video
With its entry-level specs, it is easy to forget that the Microsoft Lumia 550 was unveiled at the same time as the new Windows 10 Mobile powerhouses, the Microsoft Lumia 950 and the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. Still, that doesn't mean that Microsoft is just going to forget about the phone. An official video was released today for the Lumia 550, detailing some of its features, including the latest Office apps that are pre-loaded on the device.

The Lumia 550 is equipped with a 4.7-inch screen, carrying a 720 x 1280 resolution. That works out to a 314ppi pixel density. The Snapdragon 210 SoC is under the hood, with a quad-core 1.1GHz CPU and the Adreno 304 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside, along with 8GB of internal, expandable storage. A 5MP camera adorns the back of the unit, while a 2MP shooter graces the front. A 2100mAh battery keeps the generator humming, and Windows 10 Mobile is pre-installed.

The phone will be available unlocked, directly from Microsoft, starting in December. Priced at $139, the phone still comes with Cortana and other Windows 10 Mobile features that you'll find on more expensive Lumia models.

Microsoft: stick to Xbox and PCs Everyone else: sell any Microsoft stock you may own because even the above has lost its popularity. Though I guess still opting for the free OneDrive cloud storage isn't a bad idea.

I amazed about how much ignorance you have packed into one comment. You should give yourself a good old pat on the back.

Stop drinking the water where you live. Are you MAD?? let's see. Microsoft finally got the Surface Pro Tablet's design right in the Surface Pro 3 and is making a profit selling them. it got Best tablet reward at CES 2015. The New Surface Book is a HIT and the Surface Pro 4 is thinner lighter and better than the Surface pro 3. The New 950/950XL smart phones can be used as a Desktop PC with it's Continuum function and a large monitor and mouse and keyboard and a special dock. In the USA Windows smart phones are not popular but in many overseas markets they are. so Microsoft will continue to make them although microsoft will make fewer models of them

I predict that the Microsoft Lumia 550 will replace the Nokia lumia 520 as Microsoft's best selling budget smart phone because it is cheap as hell and has all the basic things a person needs to have in a modern smartphone and will run all the Apps in the Windows 10 mobile store
