Lumia Honjo or Lumia 850 (Can be Lumia 650 XL too as per some rumors) has now leaked in real-life images in China. The latest leak provides us a close look at the mid-ranger device that packs a Metal Frame design and one can also notice “Iris Scanner” in the top right corner. Recently we saw a statement from Microsoft that more Lumia devices with Iris scanners are coming and that makes it more exciting.
The USB port is on top and it doesn’t appear to be USB Type-C but it may be because it is a prototype. Anyways, the source puts the display to be 5.4-inch so, it doesn’t look like Lumia 650 XL but rather Lumia 850.
Leaked video and images of what appeared to be CAD sketches of claimed Lumia 850 (Honjo) put size-specs at 155.90 x 77.23 x 6.92 / 8.50 mm. Earlier speculation had it that it may have 5.5 / 5.7-inch, 1080 display and Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 as the processor. But 5.4-inch display with 1080p resolution may be really good.
Lumia 850 Specifications (Expected):
- 5.4 / 5.5-inch, 1080p resolution display
- Octa Core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 16GB of internal storage
- 15 MP Rear / 5 MP Front Camera
- WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, 4G LTE
- Optional Dual SIM
Lumia 850 Price & Release Date (Expected):
Some sites are of the opinion that Lumia 650 is the only Lumia coming in near future or in 2016. But we told you why we think that at least one high-end mid-ranger or may be two Lumia 750 and / or Lumia 850 is expected to arrive in Q1 2016, other than the Lumia 650, that has now been certified in US as RM-1152.
We earlier reported about Lumia with RM-1182 code passing certification in Indonesia. RM-1182 later passed certifications in China too. T-Mobile Poland’s leaked plan also reveals two new Lumias arriving in Q1 2016.
So, we think Lumia 850 has strong possibility of coming to markets sometime in Q1 2016.
We reported batches of higher end mid-rangers has landed on November 18 for testing and it should be priced around INR 19499 (USD 290).
