Lumia 650 arrives in China on March 23rd

While Microsoft’s Lumia 650 is already available to pre-order on both the US and Canadian Microsoft Stores, our colleagues at Windows Latest just spotted (via Chinese website ITHome.com) that the latest Lumia handset will be available to buy on the Chinese Microsoft Store starting tomorrow.

The Lumia 650 is expected to support China Unicom 4G LTE network and will be priced around 1699 yuan ($260), that’s not exactly cheap as the mid-range phone currently costs $199 in the US and $199 in Canada. The handset features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor, 1 GB of RAM, a 5-inch 1280×720 screen, a 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera and 16 GB of internal storage that can be expanded with a Micro SD card (up to 200GB).

In our review of the handset, we noted that the beautiful design of the Lumia 650 (Microsoft’s thinnest Lumia to date) deserved more that these quite disappointing specs. As the Chinese market is pretty much dominated by Android phones, please tell us in the comments if you think the Lumia 650 can be a competitive offering in China.
