As you likely already know, Microsoft will soon be releasing a new Lumia handset which might be the last Lumia handset it releases in 2016. It’s believed that Microsoft is going to unveil the Lumia 650 on February 1st, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet. The interesting thing is that an online retailer in the United Kingdom already has the Lumia 650 up for pre-order. Before it has even been announced.
It was recently reported that there’s a possibility that Microsoft might delay the announcement to mid-February instead of February 1st, though we don’t have a concrete date. Even so at leastone place is taking pre-orders.
UK retailer MobileFun is taking pre-orders for this handset and has listed the SIM free Lumia 650 LTE unlocked variant on its website for £199 but doesn’t mention when it’s going to start shipping the device. Interesting.
Previous reports state that the Lumia 650 is going to be a mid-range device with a quadcore Snapdragon 210 processor and 1GB RAM, pack a 5 inch display with 720×1280 pixel resolution as well as an 8 megapixel rear and 5 megapixel front camera, 2,000mAh battery and 4G LTE support.
And as we said, there is no word yet from Microsoft on when it’s going to formally unveil this next Lumia handset.
