Lumia 650 XL live images surface; Looks like the Lumia 850

After we saw the press renders of the Lumia 650 the other day, we now have images of the suspicious Lumia 650 XL.


The live images of a Lumia handset next to the Lumia 1520 have surfaced in China. The sources claim that the handset is apparently the Lumia 650 XL. The handset is said to have a 5.4 inch display with HD resolution. The device is said to be powered by the entry-level Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor, just like the Lumia 650.

While it didn’t strike us at the first glance, a closer look at the images of the alleged Lumia 650 XL reminded us of the Lumia 850 (nicknamed Honjo) which had leaked earlier. The speaker cut-outs at the top, the metallic frame and the front facing LED flash confirmed our suspicions. So did Microsoft drop its plans for the mid-range Lumia 850 and instead give us an entry-level Lumia 650 XL? We will surely find out.
