ahmad321, 06 Dec 2015so it means no lumia 850 or 750 ??Indeed, as it's been confirmed today, Lumia 650 will be the only one released in 2016. Lumia 750 and 850 has been cancelled for now but, Microsoft's strategy is often unclear... even to them (:
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2015Yes, Nexus 5X copied Microsoft/Nokia's design.Haha, either Microsoft bot or delusioned Lumia fanboys.
ams989, 06 Dec 2015Nexus 5X is that you ? Yes, Nexus 5X copied Microsoft/Nokia's design.
To all who thinks that this lumia design is a nexus 5X copy. Take a look at Lumia 640 XL once deeply,Nexus 5X is the one which came a copy of Lumia 640 XL. Lumia 850 design follows the design language of Lumia 640 XL + Lumia 830.
Lumia 730 design is the best.850 design is not attractive at all Microsoft please design a better phone look at the design of Lumia 840 concept phones which combine the legendary N8 and Lumia 930 design.I will not hold such ugly looking device in my hand.
where is the dedicated camera button????????????????????????????? omg, i am really getting upset with ms.
LEF, 05 Dec 2015Well, yeah :P but will it be >300$ ?That I do not know. But if I was wise enough. I would rather take hint from their 830 and 930 pricing. And relatively take the common denominator by 950's current pricing. I am slow at math but anyone better at the math behind this could approximate a price for 850

Anonymous, 05 Dec 2015I'm certain it would approximately cost less than the 950 seriesWell, yeah :P but will it be >300$ ?

Tho nokia is making their new c1 phone. Maybe, just maybe, next year MS will make lumia's as a mid range & low range phone for other users who want to experience windows mobile OS. And Surface phone will gonna be their high end. I read some article that panos panay and his team who designed and developed the surface line are involve for the upcoming surface phone
I like premium design, but for phone to be heavy and slippery is not a better choice either. 165g and 180/190g is difference. I hope ms flagship will be better.
I had a discussion with some people from Microsoft mobile division who tend to say that they'll only sell one mid end device in the future whatever it is; 650, 750 or 850
Saitama, 05 Dec 2015We need Surface like phone-design. I love what lumia is. But ms should stop the lumia and poly... moreI would suggest MS to drop their Lumia series or probably return it to its original owner, Nokia, then MS could either venture on a new series or introduce a smartphone device from their own Surface series. Of course, either series MS creates should exhibit a different design to avoid potential class-actions on phone design elements. This should, at most, entirely alleviate the already tarnished stigma of the Lumia series or a Lumia device
I think or maybe I hope this is what I have been waiting for. A proper mid-range phone - I do not need a top of the range which costs more than my laptop. Lets hope it has proper mid-range pricing as well.
