The high-end Lumia 950 and 950 XL are now available in the Netherlands and that means that our focus slowly begin to focus on the still unannounced Microsoft smartphones, including the Lumia 850. The phone code named Honjo will succeed in all probability the Lumia 830. In the past weekend appeared a few renders of the Lumia 850, which shows the design of the Windows 10 smartphone is clear.

The image of the white Lumia 850 was leaked by ev leaks, whilst in the Chinese network Baidu was also seen in several colors. It would be the colors white / gold, rose / gold, black / gray and black / copper. According to recent rumors, the Lumia 850 will be introduced as a mid-range smartphone with Windows 10 operating system.
The design of the phone looks much like that of the high-end Lumia 950 with rounded corners instead of the sharper edges of its predecessor, the Lumia 830. It is currently unclear when the Lumia 850 is announced, but given the leaked information seems a release not to be far off.
According to the Chinese source has the Lumia 850 ‘Honjo’ about a 5.7-inch ClearBlack IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (386 pixels per inch) and a Snapdragon 617-soc Qualcomm. This is a mid-range chipset with eight Cortex A53 cores, 4G connectivity and an Adreno 405 GPU for graphics. Previously leaked documents spoke of a five-inch screen (1280 x 768 pixels) with a Snapdragon 410-soc, an Adreno 306 GPU, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage memory with a micro SD slot, a 10-megapixel PureView camera and a battery 2650mAh.
If the new specifications prove to be correct than the Lumia 850 has in recent months received a significant makeover, including a faster processor and a larger screen. It should be noted that the leaked specifications of the Lumia 550 did not have agreed to the extension that is now in stores.
