They say Microsoft had to pull the plug on a bunch of fairly advanced Lumia prototypes lately after deciding to streamline its mobile product portfolio and seek new ways to return to profitability, but the 650, aka Saana, may still be on.

Rendered in black a while back, and tipped to marginally upgrade the specifications of the Lumia 640 launched roughly nine months ago, the modest 5-incher makes the rumor rounds again, with a press-friendly all-white image.

This maintains the illusion of a metallic or metal-like frame, confirms the focus on emerging markets by featuring dual SIM capabilities, and generally looks sleek for a no doubt super-affordable Windows 10 Mobile device.

Of course, the Microsoft Lumia 650’s body will be made primarily of plastic, and the time shown on the home screen seems to put its official market name beyond the shadow of a doubt. Much like the 550 and 640, the low-cost ivory bad boy should sport 1,280 x 720 display resolution, with 1GB RAM under the hood, 8 gigs of local storage space, and microSD support.

8 and 5MP cameras will outdo both the veterans’ photography muscle, whereas a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor feels like the logical continuation of the SD400 powering the Lumia 640. No words on battery capacity just yet, or other color options besides black and white, but everything shall unfold in the first quarter of 2016. Stay tuned.
