Upcoming Microsoft Lumia 550 allegedly pictured in four colors

Microsoft will soon announce its first smartphones running Windows 10 Mobile from day one. The company has already scheduled an event on October 6 for this purpose, and as we get closer to that date we’re expecting to see more and more leaks relating to such devices.

Take today, for example. A set of four pictures has been leaked, and they reportedly show the upcoming Microsoft Lumia 550 in four color versions – white, red, blue, and black. Make sure to click on the thumbnails in order to see the full size images.

Microsoft Lumia 550

While the high-end Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL pair have been talked about a lot in past rumors, we’ve only started hearing about the Lumia 550 in July. Earlier this month, some of its specs were seemingly confirmed by a Swiss retailer, and now the shots above have also thankfully arrived complemented by hardware details.

Hence, we find out that the Microsoft Lumia 550 will have a 4.7-inch 720p AMOLED touchscreen, 8GB of internal storage, and at the helm shall be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 210 SoC, boasting a 1.1 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU. Given the chipset, we expect the Lumia 550 to feature Cat.4 LTE support, for download speeds of up to 150Mbps, as well as 50Mbps uploads.

A previous leak talked about the Lumia 550 getting a 5-inch touchscreen though. That same leak went on to claim the phone will have a 5 MP main camera, a 2 MP front cam, 1GB of RAM, and a 1,905 mAh battery.
