At this time, it is no secret that the Lumia 650 is on its way from Microsoft as a budget Windows Phone aimed at mass business purchases. In fact, our earlier reporting suggests that Microsoft will announce the phone this Monday.
Now, a new ROM tool created by 'Cholens' over at XDA lets you see what is on Microsoft's servers including some ROMs for the Lumia 650 destined for Europe.
Heading to www.lumiafirmware.com and looking for RM-1152 and you can see over two dozen ROMs for the Lumia 650. Users can even download the ROMs and associated files for deeper analysis. Not much else can be discerned from the files, but it is interesting nonetheless.
Going by the ROM and firmware listing it does look like Poland, Germany, Italy, Spain, Great Britain, France, Portugal, Romania, Netherlands, and a few other countries will be getting the Lumia 650 in a couple of weeks.
Lumia 650 Specifications (unofficial)
- Windows 10 Mobile
- Colors: Matte White or Matte Black
- 5-inch 720p display
- Snapdragon 212 processor at 1.3GHz
- 1GB of RAM
- 8GB of storage (maybe 16GB) with micro SD expansion
- 5MP front-facing camera; 8MP rear with LED flash
Unfortunately, there are no listings for the US or North America, but at this time, there is not enough information to make any conclusions.
Hopefully, Microsoft will be filling in any missing details in the next few days.
