Lumia 650, Release Preview ring for Insiders all indicate the imminent release of Windows 10 Mobile OS to older Lumias


Many things have happened in the recent months in the Windows world. Microsoft has accelerated the release of Windows 10 mobile OS builds to the insiders in the fast and slow rings. PC builds got updated too. And now the Lumia 650 in what is perhaps the last Lumia with the legacy of the erstwhile Nokia also got announced and is up for pre-orders. However the sale may start from 18th Feb 2016. 

Lumia 650 

Lumia 650 has all promising features and it fills the gap nicely between the new generation Windows 10 powered budget Lumia 550 and the flagship Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL. So Lumia 650 becomes the fourth model of the Windows Smartphone that has Windows 10 out of the box notwithstanding the eligibility of many other older Lumias currently running Windows 8.1 that might run Windows 10 mobile OS very soon. 

Lumia 650 has 5” AMOLED screen with a better pixel density, Corning Gorilla glass, 16 GB internal memory, support for external memory through microSD card for about 200 GB, 4G/LTE connectivity and Qualcomm Quadcore Snapdragon processor, a very sleek design with metallic frame and about 7 mm thickness among the major specifications.

Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.71 released to Fast ring insiders. What's next? Release of official Windows 10 Mobile OS

Perhaps among the technology companies, it is Microsoft that has generated much interest and curiosity in the last few months ever since Windows 10 was released for personal computers on 29th July 2015.

Many Microsoft/Windows fans have been actively participating in 'Windows Insider' program which is a 'first of its kind' involvement of fans particularly by the tech giant Microsoft.

Windows 10 already on 200 million devices including 1 million Smartphones


Despite the 'app-gap' that has been plaguing the rise of 'Windows 10 Mobile' as the preferred choice of many prospective users, one can't deny the impressive work done by Microsoft for Windows 10.

It is no wonder considering the fact that about 200 million users have already upgraded to Windows 10 from earlier builds and all of them are considered to be having the genuine versions of Windows. At the same time about 1 million smartphones are already running on 'Windows 10 Mobile' preview builds except the Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL, Lumia 550 which came with Windows 10 Mobile out the box when they got released in November 2015.
