Render of low-end Microsoft Lumia 550 appears online

There’s a new Microsoft Lumia 550 smartphone that’s ready to be released, as a press render of this device has just been spotted online. This low-end phone is expected to be unveiled alongside the flagship Lumia 950 range at a New York City event on October 6.

One of the main selling points of the Microsoft Lumia 550 will be the fact that it offers a front facing flash. That automatically puts it in the selfie phone category which is growing at the moment at a much faster pace than we had expected.

The render you’re seeing in the space down below has come via the @evleaks Twitter account. This Microsoft device has been leaked in the past, and has been revealed to be the beneficiary of a 4.7-inch 720p HD display. It will apparently run on a 1.1GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor.
