As we all know by now, Microsoft decided at some point in 2015 that they were going to retrench their Mobile efforts, which meant a few of the planned phones they were expecting to release in 2015 and 2016 were canceled. The Lumia 550, 650 and 950 were released, but the Lumia 750 and 850 were killed before making it to market.
Today, a new video by Nokibar, known for showcasing unreleased Lumia products, have now had a chance to go hands on with the Lumia 750, also known as the Lumia "Guilin" Windows 10 Mobile device. According to Nokibar, the Lumia 750 was actually spec'd more like a Lumia 555:
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB Internal Storage
- 5.0" 1280x720 IPS Display
- Snapdragon 210/212 Processor
- 2020 mAh Battery
- 5MP Main Shooter
- 5MP Front Shooter
So by no means was the Lumia "Guilin" going to be shaking up the mobile industry. Both the Lumia 750 and Lumia 850 handsets were killed internally, along with any plans to release new Lumia devices down the line. The Lumia 650 is the last Lumia that Microsoft plans to make, meaning if Microsoft plan to release a new phone in the future, it'll be under another brand.
Regardless, it's sad to see these echos of what could have been for Lumia throughout 2016, and we're pretty sure Windows Phone fans would have loved to see a Lumia 750 and 850 hit the market at some point. Regardless, what are your thoughts on the Lumia 750 specs? Let us know.
