Microsoft has officially unveiled its latest Windows 10 Mobile phone, the Microsoft Lumia 650.

The new handset has a retail price of $199 (that’s about 40,000 naira) before local taxes and subsidies. The smartphone has been scheduled to go on sale in select European markets starting Thursday, February 18 2016.

Interestingly, a dual SIM variant of the Microsoft Lumia 650 was also listed on the company’s India website. This suggests that the dual SIM variant of the smartphone will probably be available in India.

Unfortunately, the India listing  only has the phone listed with details about pricing left out.

The latest Microsoft Lumia 650 runs Windows 10 Mobile and features a 5-inch Amoled ClearBlack display with HD (720×1280 pixels) resolution. It has a pixel density of 297ppi.

Much like other Windows 10 devices, the Lumia 650 packs Microsoft suite of productivity apps including Office apps, for creating and editing documents on-the-go; OneDrive, for cloud storage, and Cortana, Microsoft’s personal assistant.

The smartphone under the hood is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 which is clocked at 1.3GHz. This is further clubbed with 1GB of RAM to offer a moderate experience when multitasking.

The Microsoft Lumia 650 also packs 16GB of built-in storage and supports expandable storage via microSD card up to an impressive 200GB. The handset is backed by a 2000mAh battery and supports Nano-SIM.

The smartphone sports an 8 megapixel rear autofocus camera with LED flash. A 5 megapixel front camera is also on board for taking selfies and making video calls.

There is little or no difference in innards between the Lumia 650 and its dual-SIM variant. The biggest difference is that the Lumia 650 Dual SIM comes with dual-SIM slots.

Microsoft said the Lumia 650 will offer users the perfect balance between work and personal needs. It added that the Lumia 650 fits perfectly into the enterprise with built-in support for Microsoft business apps.
