Microsoft launches its most affordable Windows 10 smartphone in India, priced at Rs. 9,399

Looks like Microsoft is yet again targeting the budget-conscious segment of buyers in the Indian smartphone market. The company has launched the Lumia 550 smartphone for a price of Rs. 9,399. The device is set to go on sale from December 23.

Sadly, unlike Microsoft’s other high-end smartphones such as the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, this one will not support Windows 10 Continuum feature. The Continuum feature enables smartphones to work like computers with a desktop-like interface when connected to the TV via Display Dock. However, on a happier note, the Lumia 550 is Microsoft’s cheapest smartphone to run the latest Windows 10 Mobile out-of-the-box.

Lumia 550The Lumia 550 is a dual-SIM smartphone with 4G LTE connectivity. The device was first showcased at the Lumia 950 event that was held in October. It comes with a 4.7-inch (1280 x 720 pixels) HD display, and is powered by a 1.1 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor. It features 1GB of RAM and 8GB internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 200GB via microSD card slot. In the imaging department, Microsoft has equipped the device with a 5-megapixel autofocus primary camera with LED flash, f/2.4 aperture, and 720p video recording. There is a 2-megapixel secondary camera onboard, with f/2.8 aperture, 480p video recording capability.

Coming on to the connectivity options, the Lumia 550 supports 4G LTE, 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, and GPS. The device measures 136.1 x 67.8 x 9.9 mm and weighs 141.9 grams. It is backed by a 2,100mAh removable battery.
