What's This?

Microsoft has been successfully changing its business focus along with products that seem to attract the market better than before. This time, the company is reportedly releasing the last version of the Lumia series, the Microsoft Lumia 650, to release a new phone called the Microsoft Surface Phone. Many believe that the Surface Phone will be the company’s focus to take on big names in the smartphone sector.


Since the Microsoft Lumia 650 is expected sometime soon this February, several leaks have already popped up including a store card for the supposed device. From the Lumia 650, people could expect the following:

  • Windows
  • 8MP Camera
  • 5MP Front Facing
  • 4.97″ Display
  • 1.3GHZ Quad Core
  • 16GB Memory
  • HD Voice Ready
  • Features Glance Screen

The description also says: : “The best of Windows, Uncompromised design and performance. The sleek metal design seals a powerful package for multi tasking and fast internet access.”

As for the Microsoft Surface Phone, REM reported that Microsoft is preparing a device that features a 5.5-inch scren, 4GB RAM (expandable up to 8GB) and two storage variants: 64GB to 256GB. Furthermore, the device is also expected to include a keyboard like connector support that will feature the Windows 10 Mobile OS. Microsoft Surface Phone has also been reportedly linked to Intel’s Skylake series which promises efficiency for all devices.

For those interested about the camera, it should receive a bump to 23MP at the back and 13MP at the front. Microsoft is expected to tailor the Surface Phone more for the business user that is similar to what Blackberry did before. However, Microsoft has not confirmed the final details of the phone yet so all leaks and expectations should be taken with a grain of salt. There is also the question as to whether it can stand up to other big players like Google, Apple and Samsung.

    Shouldn’t you compare the 950 instead? 650 isn’t a flag ship I think. 🙂
