A few new Lumia 850 renders leak online along with familiar photos

Yesterday offered us a set of hands-on photos of the Microsoft Lumia 850 and today, samples from the same batch have resurfaced from yet another source adding quite a bit to the authenticity of the leak. Joining them we have a few fan-made renders that lets us get a better idea of the smartphone’s looks.

This is the latest in a long line of news and various info on the handset, reaffirming that the mid-range Windows 10 phablet will be outed this year. Without diving too much into the shots themselves, we will just note that even though the Lumia 850 is expected to come with a plastic body, like many of its siblings, there clearly looks to be some extra detail on the frame, maybe perhaps some metal.

Other obvious changes include a repositioned microUSB 2.0 connector – now on the top and a 3.5mm jack on the bottom. As for specs, we currently believe that the Lumia 850 will be powered by a Snapdragon 617 chip – one of Qualcomm’s new mid-range offers that just happens to be Microsoft’s last addition to the Continuum requirements sheet, which naturally suggests support for the new phablet. The display is said to be a 5.7-inch one with a FullHD resolution, but there is still no info on memory.
