Microsoft has announced the Lumia 650, a budget Windows 10 phone targeted at business users. The Lumia 650 is another sync content between Windows 10 devices via OneDrive.
The Lumia 650 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 quad-core SoC with four Cortex-A7 cores running at 1.3 GHz. That chip is paired with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. A microSD card slot can be used to add up to 200GB more storage.
The phone features a 5" 1280x720 AMOLED screen good for 297 PPI. Selfie shooters get a 5MP wide-angle camera on the front, while the rear-camera uses an 8MP sensor. Those internals are housed in an aluminum frame. Microsoft will offer buyers a choice of matte black or matte white back cover options.
The Lumia 650 comes with a surprising amount of connectivity for a phone of its class, including NFC and LTE support. The phone's 2000-mAh replaceable battery is good for up to 16 hours of talk time.
Microsoft is rolling out the Lumia 650 to select European markets starting Feb. 18 at a suggested price of $199. There's no word yet on availability in other markets.
