Microsoft has unveiled this low-end smartphone in February, but fans in India expressed their anger because of its ridiculously high price of $180, while in US, it was available for $199 (unlocked). Finally, Microsoft has decided to temporarily sell the Lumia 650 for $149. This offer will end on August 21 and until then, you’ll be able to purchase the phone from the Microsoft Store with a 25 percent discount.

At the beginning of this month, the Lumia 950 got $150 price cut off, while the Lumia 950 XL has received a discount of $200, and now, fans can buy them from the Microsoft Store for $399 and $499 respectively – which are their permanent prices.

These are the first Windows 10 Mobile flagships that Microsoft has released in November 201. Now, a more affordable device running on the latest OS is receiving a price cut, and we’re talking about the Lumia 650, which is $50 cheaper until August 21. The phone is still more expansive than the Lumia 550, which costs $139 and has greatly inferior specs.

However, back in May, Cricket Wireless has started selling the Lumia 650 for $129.99 without a contract, then it reduced its price to $109.99 -> $69.99 -> $49.99. If you’re thinking about purchasing the Lumia 650, these are its key specs: it has a plastic back available in white and black colors, it measures 142 x 70.9 x 6.9 mm and weights 122 grams and it has a 5-inch HD AMOLED display (1280x720pixels) resolution protected by Gorilla Glass 3.

It’s powered by a quad-core 1.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor backed by 1GB of RAM and has an internal memory of 16GB, expandable up to 200GB using a microSD card. The main camera (from the back) supports a resolution of 8MP, while the one on the front side is 5MP. The battery is removable and has a capacity of 2000mAh.
