If you’re getting excited about the upcoming Windows Phone flagship from Microsoft you probably don’t want to hear about another mid-ranger, but here it is. The Microsoft Lumia 550 has cropped up in a Swiss store for CHF 114 ($117/€104) and it could become the first of the 5-series to support LTE.
Specs for the phone (RM-1127 and RM-1128, probably the single and dual-SIM versions) show a Snapdragon 210 chipset (quad A53 at 1.1GHz plus Adreno 304) and a 4.7″ screen with 720 x 1,280px resolution. The phone is listed with 8GB of storage and will launch with Windows 10 Mobile.
GFX Benchmark also detected a 5MP/720p main camera and 1.2MP/720p selfie camera. We may be looking at 1GB of RAM though GFX reported only half that. Leaked specs of the 550 show 1GB RAM, but also a 5″ 540 x 960px screen.
Microsoft scheduled an event for October 6 and we were really, really hoping for the mythical Lumia 940 but we may be getting mid-rangers too.
