After being unveiled this February, Microsoft Lumia 650 went on sale in US and Canada on April 1. Even though Microsoft hasn’t yet officially announced Lumia 650 in India, it has been listed for sale online on Amazon’s India Website. Apparently the retailer claims that the shipment will start from April 30. Note that the Lumia 650 is also being sold in Europe ever since its release in February.
The handset in question, Microsoft Lumia 650, sports a 5 inch 720p display while a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 chipset resides under the hood. SD212 SoC contains a 1.3 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU while other specs include 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of Internal storage (expandable via microSD), 8 MP rear shoot, 5 MP font facing selfie camera, 4G LTE and 2,000 mAh battery. Last but not the least, Lumia 650 comes out of the box with pre-installed Windows 10 Mobile.
Before going ahead and buying the smartphone, please have a look at some drawbacks mentioned ahead. The Microsoft Lumia 650 comes with an entry level chipset and offers no 1080p video recording. The smartphone offers a considerably low, 2000 mAh, battery which probably wont be enough to get you through the day. In addition to that, it comes without the support for Windows 10 Continuum. So guys, if the above mentioned facts don’t bother you much, you can buy the Lumia 650’s white white variant for INR 16,599 ($250), while the black will cost you INR 16,700 ($252).
Stay tuned for further updates.
