Here's another press shot of the Lumia 650

The profilic leaker Evan Blass @evleaks has once again taken to Twitter to give us another look of the upcoming Lumia 650, this time a front press shot, while reiterating the rumor of the phone being the last in the Lumia brand of handset.

In the provided photo, the Lumia 650 unsurprisingly looks almost identical to Microsoft's other low-end offering in the mobile phone market, specifically the Lumia 550. Of course, the front view belies the somewhat unique design touch of the new phone, namely a thinner profile and a side metal band, the first in a sub-8xx Lumia.

Unfortunately, the differentiation stops there, as the internals seem decidedly low-end: Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 or 212, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage with microSD card slot, a meagre 2000mAh battery. The 5-inch 720p display with Glance Screen, LTE, and a decent-on-paper 8 megapixel camera should provide a few consolations, the later however somewhat marred by the lack of a dedicated camera button.

The phone has already appeared on MobileFun UK for pre-ordering among others, and is expected to retail for around £199 (price adjusted in other markets accordingly).
