After quite a number of months being in the rumour mills, today Microsoft is formally announcing the Microsoft Lumia 650 which according to credible reports will be the last Lumia phone from Microsoft as the company moves it's mobile business to the Surface brand. Nothing is confirmed at this point, so take it with a grain of salt. But, as for the Lumia 650 itself, this device is priced at US$ 199 (~ RM 822) and will go on sale in Europe on February 18.

As expected, the Lumia 650 comes with a metal frame paired up with a white or black polycarbonate back. And of course, the Lumia 650 comes loaded with Microsoft's new Windows 10 Mobile OS and joins the likes of the Lumia 550 and Lumia 950 series. Similar to the Lumia 550 launch, it seems that Microsoft is targeting the Lumia 650 for enterprise users than actual consumers.

Expect to see the Lumia 650 launch in Malaysia sometime soon and the device will be available in Dual SIM variants which will likely be the one coming to Malaysia. Learn more about the availability of the Lumia 650 here in Malaysia here
