According to a recent report from Windows Central, Microsoft will launch the Lumia 650 on February 1st, meaning that the company will not be announcing the new smartphone at Mobile World Congress as was expected.

According to rumours, the Lumia 650 will run on Windows 10 Mobile, featuring a 5-inch 720p display, with a Snapdragon 210 or 212 processor, 1 GB of RAM and 8GB of storage.

Rumours also claim that it will feature a microSD card slot and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.

It is also expected to be available with a metal chassis and a matte plastic back that will be made available in both black and white.

Windows Central showed this in a mock-up pictured above.

This all comes after news that the FCC approved the Lumia 650 earlier this month, as well as other rumours that Microsoft will be showcasing the 750 or 850 during MWC 2016.

However according to the Windows Central, the 650 will come a lot earlier than this.

At the moment we don’t know the official news, but when we do we will let you know.
