Microsoft is expected to launch two high-end smartphones in October. They should have high-resolution displays, speedy processors, and some nifty features including the ability to act (a little) like a desktop PC when you connect a mouse, keyboard and touchpad.
4.75.0 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB of storage + microSD card slot
- 1905 mAh battery
- Black, white, blue, and red color options
In other words, the phone’s expected to be a lot less powerful than the upcoming Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL smartphones. But it’ll also be a lot cheaper: prices are expected to start at around $120.
It’s also nice to see that even entry-level phones can have HD displays these days.
Microsoft hasn’t officially confirmed any details about the phone yet, so there’s a chance that some of the specs could be wrong. Or even if they’re accurate, there’s still time for Microsoft to make changes before officially unveiling the phone.
