While there has been no official word from Microsoft India, sources indicate that the Lumia 650 is arriving in India in the first week of April 2016 – that's just a few days from now really.
If you're interested in picking one up as soon as it hits the shelves, you can pre-book one at a Microsoft Priority Reseller Store. You can pay ₹1,000 and reserve one for yourself in the first batch of devices. While I confirmed this from stores in Gurgaon and Delhi, different stores might have a different advance payment amount. No, the store owners do not have a clue of the final pricing just yet.
The Lumia 650 is a Windows 10 Mobile device similar to the Lumia 550, with the primary difference being the larger screen size. The Lumia 650 features a flat chrome band around the top and sides, with both white and black variants in the mix reflecting a new design language.
