Microsoft has taken another crack at a Windows 10 phone, this time targeting the mid-range market with the Lumia 650.

The handset comes with the Redmond firm’s latest mobile operating system on board, paired with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 chipset clocked at 1.3GHz and 1GB of RAM.

The Lumia 650 also features a 5-inch AMOLED ClearBlack display with HD resolution, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel selfie snapper.

Coming in matte black and matte white colour options, the device boasts a polished, diamond cut and anodised aluminium frame, giving it a dash of premium quality.

Microsoft has bundled its usual range of apps and services with the phone, including Skype, Cortana, OneDrive, and the Office suite.

The Lumia 650 will go on sale in Europe on February 18 with a recommended retail price of between £150 and £160, which we have to admit is a bargain.
