Together with their top-notch recent releases of the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, the company also released a, let’s say, not-that-high-end smartphone, running on the latest Windows 10. While the phone doesn’t carry a heavy armory of specs like the one we’re used to, you still may want to give it a chance.
The phone in question is the new Lumia 550, which carries a 4.7 inch LCD display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and pixel density of 314 ppi. The Lumia 550 is powered by a Snapdragon 210 chipset, paired with a quad-core 1.1GHz CPU and an Adreno 304 GPU. It features 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, expandable using a microSD card.
The Lumia 550 boasts a 5-megapixel main camera on the back, while a 2-megapixel unit comes at the front, for selfies/video calls. Juiced up by a 2100mAh battery, the phone comes with all standard connectivity options including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and 4G LTE.
If you’re looking for a low-budget Windows 10 smartphone, the Lumia 550 is the right option for you. It can be pre-ordered from the British retailer Carphone Warehouse. The retail price set is an equivalent of $137, or you can pay $11.72 per month. Either way, the phone will come unlocked and SIM free, and it will be delivered for free to you by December 8.

Since the above-mentioned models have already been made official, we have a feeling that the Microsoft Lumia 650 (a more powerful counterpart of the Lumia 640) will be announced soon enough.
