According to Italian Windows 10 site, Plaffo, the Lumia 550 is rumored to be available for €139 starting December 7. With no official comment from Microsoft Italia on Twitter and no announcement in the Lumia 550 listing in Microsoft Store Italy, it is only speculation at this point. Lumia 550 is the more affordable, less powerful option to the Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL.
Here is a list of Lumia 550 specs:
- 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels
- Qualcomm Snapdragon processor quad-core 210 1.1 GHz
- 2100 mAh battery
- 5 MP rear camera with LED Flash
- 2 MP front camera
- 8 GB internal memory
- microSD slot (expandable up to 200 GB)
- 1 GB RAM memory
These specifications are not too shabby for a low-end Windows 10 Mobile device. If the rumor is true, it will be a great deal for Italians searching for an affordable Windows 10 Mobile device. Even with the Lumia 950 and 950 XL getting some price cuts in Europe, this might be the only Windows 10 Mobile device option for most people. Stay tuned for to WinBeta for more information as this store develops.
