The Lumia 650 is Microsoft’s latest addition to its fifth generation of Lumia smartphones, and the handset has only been available in select European markets since its official release on February 18th. However, according to a new report from MSPoweruser, the mid-range handset will soon make its way to Mexico as carrier Movistar will reportedly start selling it next week for 4399 MXN (around $250). The handset is not currently listed on the Movistar site, but the Mexican carrier is already selling the Lumia 550 & 950 models as well as previous generations Lumias such as the 640 and 640 XL.
Microsoft targeted the Lumia 650 at professionals, but the handset features a beautiful design but mediocre specs and is not Continuum-enabled. That’s a shame, because the device is actually the thinnest Lumia ever, and around its 5 inch Amoled screen sits a nice brushed metal band accompanied by a matte plastic shell on the back. That’s definitely an upgrade from the Lumia 950 design, though the Lumia 650 is held back by a low-end quad-core Snapdragon 212 Processor and 1GB RAM.
As Windows Phone is already losing market share in Europe according to the latest Kantar numbers, Microsoft will have a lot of work to do to sell its Lumias in more difficult markets.
