Along with its new flagship Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, Microsoft today announced a entry-level Windows 10 Mobile phone, the Lumia 550.
The Microsoft Lumia 550 boasts a 4.7-inch 1280x720 display and 2-megapixel camera on its face, as well as a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash on its rear. Inside of its 9.9mm-thick body lives a 1.1GHz quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a microSD slot for additional storage, and a 2100mAh battery. Microsoft has included 4G LTE connectivity, as well.
The Lumia 550 will be available in December for $139. At that price, it looks like a solid option for folks that want a low-cost smartphone. Its specs are actually decent for the price, including a 720p display, a removable battery, and a microSD slot, and Microsoft’s low-cost phones typically still have nice-feeling polycarbonate bodies.
