New render of the Microsoft Lumia 850 surfaces

22
Earlier this month, we showed you some renders allegedly revealing the metal-clad Microsoft Lumia 850. The images were based on sketches received by tipster OnLeaks, and displayed a rear camera hump similar to the one on the Nexus 5X. Today, a new render of the device was disseminated in a tweet sent by Evan Blass, better known as @evleaks. This time, we get to see what the front of the phone is supposed to look like.

The Microsoft Lumia 850, sporting the nickname "Honjo," is expected to carry a 5.7-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That works out to a 386ppi pixel density. Under the hood will be the Snapdragon 617 chipset containing an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. The unit will reportedly measure 6.92mm thin, and will be clad in metal. The Microsoft logo on back looks luxurious in gold, and the handset sports a front-facing flash or an infrared scanner.

Even though renders of the Lumia 850 have started to appear, there is the possibility that the phone will be canceled by Microsoft. Whether Microsoft decides to unveil the Lumia 850, or takes it out back to be shot, as soon as we get the official word from Redmond we will pass it along to you.
