It appears Microsoft is prepping a fourth Lumia device that’ll feature Windows 10 Mobile right out-of-the-box. After the successful unveiling of three Lumia handsets at its Windows 10 hardware event, a leaked image of a Lumia device codenamed ‘Saana’ has been posted by WinBeta. The leaked image render also hinted at a specific name for the phone. As Microsoft has a tendency to name the device before the official announcement by the time display in demo shots. Moreover, based on the time displayed in the rendered image (6:50), it is being speculated that the device may be called the Lumia 650.
While other sources suggest that the Lumia device in question is the RM-1152, which apparently also showed up in AdDuplex revealing that the device features a standard 5-inch HD display. Powering the device could be Qualcomm’s MSM8909 Snapdragon 210 or Snapdragon 410, while juicing it up would be a 2000mAh battery. No other information is available at this point, though going by the rumored specs the device is clearly aimed at the mid-range market.
The device could be unveiled next year sometime in February during the MWC trade fair to be held in Barcelona, provided the company does not cancel the smartphone that will depend on how other newly launched Lumia devices perform.
Meanwhile, existing Lumia devices are expected to get the Windows 10 Mobile update sometime in December. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella confirmed this while responding to user queries on its Lumia Facebook page.
“We built Windows 10 for a new era of more personalized computing.Windows 10 is available on PCs and tablets now, and while Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL ship with Windows 10 for phones, broad availability of Windows 10 on other devices, including mobile phones, will begin rolling out in December,” said Nadella. “We’re moving people from needing to choosing to loving Windows, and these devices promise to fuel even more enthusiasm and opportunity for the entire Windows ecosystem.”
