Leaked Specs of Aborted Devices; Lumia 550, 750 and 850


The Leaked Specs of 3 low to mid range Lumia devices which will not make it to market have surfaced, courtesy of an anonymous tip the guys at WMPowerUser.com recieved. They are prototype specs for the Lumia 550, the Lumia 750 and the Lumia 850.

The three Windows smartphones were likely binned due to the new strategy Microsoft have planned, where they intend to concentrate on high end specs leaving low end smartphones to third party OEM’s.

These model numbers 550, 750 and 850 also confirmed earlier rumours that Microsoft was skipping the whole Lumia x40 generation, so no Lumia 540, 740, 840 or 940. Meaning they are jumping from 830 to 850, 930 to 950, 530 to 550 and 730 to 750.

This jump is synonymous with how Microsoft also took the leap from Windows 8 to Windows 10, skipping Windows 9.

The specs look identical to their predecessors, the main difference is that the CPUs got upgraded, the SD400 on the Lumia 730 and 830 got upgraded to the SD410 on these rumoured Lumia 750 and 850. And the Lumia 530 and its SD200 got upgraded to SD210 on the Lumia 550.

It is important to note again that these are prototype specs of smartphones which have been cancelled. Looking at their specs show them to be exactly the type of phone that Microsoft have recently revealed will no longer be part of their line up.

Here’s a reminder to take these with a pinch of salt.

Are you disappointed that these phones will not be released?
