Microsoft cuts the price of the Lumia 550 down to $99 through October 9

The Microsoft Store has cut the price of the unlocked Lumia 550 smartphone, running Windows 10 Mobile, down to $99 until October 9. This is a $40 discount from its normal price of $139.

This limited time discount (via Neowin) comes just a few days after Microsoft rolled out a firmware update for the Lumia 550 that fixed a number of issues with the phone. Launched in late 2015, it has a 4.7-inch display, a quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, which is expandable with a microSD card. Its rear camera has 5 megapixels while its front-facing camera is 2MP. It also has a 2100mAh battery.
