New smartphones running Windows 10 Mobile out of the box always generate some attention. The Lumia 650 is not high-end as far as specs are concerned. However, it does have a nicely premium look with an aluminum frame build with exchangeable back cover. The Microsoft Store Australia now has pre-orders available at AU$299, and there’s a nice bonus as buyers will also receive a free Incipio Octane Pure case.
Microsoft has specified the release date of the Lumia 650 as May 23, so if you’ve been waiting for availability of the phone you’ll be able to get your hands on it before the end of the month. The phone can be pre-ordered in black or white colors. As well as the official Microsoft Store, the phone will also be offered by retailers such as Australia Post, Big W, The Good Guys, and JB Hi-Fi.
