After launching its Lumia 550, Lumia 950, and Lumia 950 XL smartphones, Microsoft seems to be working on its Lumia 850 handset. Few leaked images showing handset’s protective cases have emerged online, giving us some idea on the design of the device.
The images shared by Gizmochina (via GSMArena) show the handset to house a rear camera at the top-centre position with single LED flash placed above it. The power button and volume buttons are seen on the right panel of the smartphone. In addition, the handset in the images is seen in its Blue colour variant. Since it is covered by a protective case, nothing more can be said for the Lumia 850 as of now.
Based on previous rumours, the Windows 10-based Lumia 850 is said to feature a metal frame. It is expected to house a 5-inch 768×1280 pixels resolution display, 10-megapixel rear camera with Zeiss lens, Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC, 1GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt storage, and a 2650mAh battery.
We first heard about the unannounced Lumia 850 smartphone back in July when Microsoft alongside the Lumia 650 was reportedly testing it. Notably, the Lumia 650 showed up in another leak earlier this month.
It is worth mentioning that Microsoft Chief Marketing Officer, Chris Capossela last week in an interview hinted that the company is working on a high-end smartphone – anticipated to be the much-rumoured Surface Phone. He confirmed that the Redmond-based giant is working on a “breakthrough” phone that will be the “spiritual equivalent” of the company’s Surface tablet line. He added however that the company still needed time to build the device, so asked for patience from interested users.
