Amid the flurry of excitement and information regarding the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, it’s easy to forget that three phones were actually announced during Redmond’s Device event in October 6. Yes, we are talking about the Lumia 550 – the new budget-friendly, diminutive sibling of the Lumia line, which seemingly sunk into obscurity the moment it was unveiled. Nevertheless, buyers from Russia looking for an affordable, compact Lumia experience can now purchase the phone, reports Windows Central.
A quick recap: the Lumia 550 features a 4.7-inch HD screen, 5MP rear camera and 2MP front-facing camera, powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage, expandable using a microSD up to 200GB. While the specs certainly cannot compare to its bigger siblings’ flagship internals, as a budget phone, the Lumia 550 is a solid choice, especially with its small size appreciated by the right customers. The phone is not lacking in the looks department either: the design is unapologetically Lumia-minimalistic, shiny in white and matte in black, with a chrome Microsoft logo for some subtle pizzazz.
The listing promises a December 3rd or 4th delivery for customers in Moscow, with the phone retailing for 9490 rubles, about $141 US.Further reading: Lumia 550, Microsoft
