Microsoft Lumia 650 soon to launch in the U.S.

9

While the Microsoft Lumia 650 has already been released overseas, the handset has yet to launch in the U.S. Last month, we told you that the phone was heading for AT&T's pre-paid Cricket subsidiary. The Lumia 650 was reportedly designed for the enterprise as a handset that companies could buy by the dozen, and give away to employees to use in the field.

The Lumia 650 features a 5-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a 294ppi pixel density. Driving the phone is a Snapdragon 212 chipset carrying a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU, and the Adreno 304 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage and a 200GB capacity microSD slot.

An 8MP camera adorns the back of the phone, carrying an f/2.2 aperture. On front is a 5MP selfie snapping shooter that also handles video chats. A 2000mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Windows 10 Mobile is pre-loaded on the phone.

A tweet from Lumia U.S. says that a post will be made this week to social media, revealing information pertaining to the launch of the phone in the states. Pricing of the device is expected to be in the neighborhood of  $200.
