Altich, 21 Jan 2016The upgrade already exsist. It's the 950 / 950XL.Maybe, but clearly not in the same price range!
Looking for the Lumia 650 to launch in India. Will be in first customers to buy one.
The only major difference(besides the OS) between this phone and the iPhone 6 is the processor. lumia has slightly bigger screen, iPhone has slightly better resolution, same 8 MP camera, both LTE capable, and the lumia has a slightly bigger battery. All Microsoft needs to do is put in a high powered SoC and they can charge $600 for it lol
ravi4ever, 21 Jan 2016sd210 and 1gb ram?Lumia 650 : sd210 1.1quad, 1gb ram, 2000 mAh for $220
Lumia 640 : sd400 1.3quad, 1gb ram, 2500 mAh for around $70~150
The rest of the spec is the same. Oh, Lumia 650 have metalic sides for the "premium" feel.
another lumia device......I hope there will be also a 2nd version of 1020. Maybe they call it 1030, 1040 or 1050. I want an upgrade version of 1020 so badly.
specs that might see in the phone: I hope
rear camera: 50mp(usable 48mp) but they will make it not that bumpy like 1020 im good at it but i want the less bumpy
front camera: 5mp 1080p
ram: 2gb or 3gb
sensor: add iris scanner
display: still amoled but the ppi must be greater
storage: 32gb sd card support(200gb)
battery: 3300 or more
even if its expensive i will buy it.

Every body knows the os will work smoot... moreAsk people what SoC is using their phone... out of 10, only like 1 or maybe 2 will respond, the others will not have any idea what SoC means. Most people buy things for emotional reasons like advertising, pressure from seller, recommendation from other people. Only few buyers make their purchase for objetive reasons like performance or advance hardware.
Best example of emotional purchase: The iPhone.
Nobody will buy a mobile without knowing its hardware. Every body knows the os will work smoothly in a good hardware. Otherwise he should be new and using his first smartphone in his life.

Main problem of this phone is the price, it should be below 100 dolars and the 550 like 80, then that would be a tad better situation.
Snapdragon 210 according to rumors... OMG... I suggest Microsoft to sign a contract with Qualcomm to make a new SoC - Snapdragon 110 for Lumia phones...

My previous comment disapeared for some reason....
Please do not bu ythis device. MS needs to understand without listening to users expectations they cant sell devices.
I don't understand why they are still trying to sell devices with the "beta" OS while they constantly release stuff for iOS and Android in the most pristine state.
I like WP, but I hope that NOBODY will buy this phone. Let's MS know that they cannot sell without listening to us.
DON'T BUY THIS! If you desperately need a wp just buy Lumia 640.
It is understandable people don't care much about windows phone anymore.
ravi4ever, 21 Jan 2016zero comments no one is interested..Considering Spec wise and price wise you'll be better off with Lumia 640 instead and the rumor this will be last Lumia as Surface Phone gonna appeared in february. Yeah, they don't care.
