Lumia 950 and 950 XL may be the Lumia devices that everyone knows about, but apparently that’s not all Microsoft has to offer.According to a tip from a source who wishes to remain anonymous, Microsoft is also planning 3 additional Lumia devices – the Lumia 550, 750 and 850.

The Lumia 550 is the low-end budget Lumia here, offering a Snapdragon 210 paired with an Adreno 304 GPU, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage and  a microSD card slot which offers a storage ceiling of 208 GB (200GB SD card + 8 GB internal storage). 5-inch qHD Gorilla Glass 3 screen, along with a 5 MP rear camera with autofocus and a 2MP front facing camera. While the screen resolution is less than the resolution of its immediate successor the 540, Microsoft may be intent on keeping the 5xx line as its low-budget line and cancelling out the short-lived unprofitable 4xx line. Under this context slightly reduced specs make more sense. In addition, a qHd screen would be far easier for a device equipped with a Snapdragon 210 to handle.

 Lumia 850. equipped with a 5 inch screen although it gets a WXGA diplay  it comes with a Snapdragon 410 albeit one which is clocked at 1.4 ghz rather than 1.2 ghz. It is equipped with 16 GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 216 GB via Micro SD.Optics wise, it is said to have a 10 MP PureView Zeiss lens camera with a 5 MP camera ( a standard feature?). The spec sheet lists support for video up to  480 p @ 30 fps which we’d tag as being likely due to prototype status. The battery is the same as the 750 with 2650 mAh, which paired with the screen resolution and SD 410 should provide decent battery life.
