Microsoft’s new mid-range smartphone, the Lumia 650, gets approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the US. This suggests that the phone might be released soon in the United States.

The phone is reportedly set to release in both single SIM and double SIM variants with model numbers RM-1152 and RM-1154, respectively. However, the single SIM RM-1152 model has received the FCC certification and the other model is yet to get a go signal, reports GSM Arena.

According to Techno Buffalo, Microsoft CMO Chris Capossela confirmed the release of the Lumia 650, saying that the phone will launch soon. However, he did not specify anything in detail. The FCC states that the Lumia 650 is going to be the last Lumia device to feature a 5-inch display screen.

The device is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 210 processor, 1GB of RAM and a 2,000mAH battery. The rear camera sensor will be an 8MP, while the front camera sensor will be of 2MP resolution. In a report by WindowsCentral, it was mentioned that the Lumia 650 is going to introduce metal to this mid-range handset. The idea of introducing metal is to add a more premium look to the handset.

TechTimes reports that the Lumia 650’s modest price will fill the gap between the cheaply valued Lumia 550 and the expensively priced Lumia 950 and 950 XL devices. Hence, the upcoming device is going to target customers looking for innovative features in an affordable phone.

Microsoft is expected to announce the Lumia 950 officially this month or in the next month. If reports are to be true, then the device might be unveiled during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona starting Feb. 22.

Powered by a Windows 10 operating system, the Lumia 950 comes with a 5.2-inch display screen, a 32GB memory, a 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network and a 2MP rear camera sensor, reports Microsoft.
