    It looks much like lumia 640 but with metal frame. I think it looks great, much more premium. anyone knows anything about the specs?

    That's indeed a nice looking device. Makes me wonder why they didn't go with that for the 950 and XL..

    Odd placement for the ports, though.

    Hold on... 155.9mm? That actually makes it bigger than the 950 XL (151.9 mm)...

    No camera button? what a shame. What about USB Type C? Specs etc.

    I am not sure if the specs have been leaked yet. I just posted it in the hope of finding it.

    Great looking phone if that is indeed metal frame, not pseudo-metal coated plastic. Hope specs are on par.

    Per Daniel Rubino - the 850 was cancelled and the 650 is due out in Feb/March.

    Whenever they come out with 8xx series phone again, it should be:

    Snapdragon 6xx series processor
    1.5/2GB of RAM
    13MP rear camera (heck, or upgrade the current 10MP on the 830, it's an awesome camera and would keep cost down)
    2MP front facing camera
    Wireless charging removable back plate
    16GB storage, with Micro SD card slot

    I hope Lumia 850 would come with Full HD IPS LG display or the same type of display used for Surface Pro 4, and Snapdragon 620, stereo speakers, front facing camera having same unit as Lumia 950, then that would be definite buy for me.
    The rendered design of Lumia 850 looks pretty nice, one of the best looking Lumias.

    Why the heck everyone is saying Snapdragon 6** processor only? Snapdragon 615 is not so much good processor, is battery hog, not so much improved graphics over Snapdragon 412, a too much heating SOC, and all other Snapdragon 610, 616 and 617 are only just variation of the SOC.
    If Lumia 850 would come, it must have Snapdragon 620 processor, full clocked version. As Microsoft is very good for high pricing for Lumia in low and mid range, Lumia 850 would be no exception, so, except most from it if it would ever come into existence.

    It could be even better if they did what OnePlus did with X model, put in "old" 801 or 800, if they are still available they would be probably cheap but still powerful choice.

    Looking at the shape of the USB port in render, it appears to be Micro USB, not USB Type-C. If that is indeed the case, it would make this device pointless. Makes me wonder, since it has a metal body, was Panos involved here? He seems to hate future I/O, just take a look at the Surface 3 and Surface Pro 4. Both devices that are hobbled by poor connectivity. It's frustrating to see the hardware design team make such poor decisions.

    Care to explain to me why having micro usb slot is pointless in comparison to type C?

    Because USB 3.1 type C is to be new standard for all smartphones, tablets and laptops, and it is going to be the new standard connecting universal USB, so, a bit of future proofing. But, know that, no SOC for Smartphones till now support USB 3.1( type 2) transfer rates and it's other technicalities.

    And with your last sentence, you just said it would be pointless to have type C. :D
    While it maybe would be better to have type c, it may not be great advantage, as phone wouldn't have continuum it won't affect that, OTG is possible through micro usb, and so on.
    For sure one connector type in this case doesn't make phone pointless, and for some it would be advantage.

    Maybe it would be 2019-2020 when we would see full support for USB type-C in every smartphones, tablets and laptops, even in lowest price categories, and, it isn't a deal breaker for now not to have USB type-C.

    I just hope if they do release the 850, I just want them to have a more varied carrier availability in the US. Since it's a mid-ranger that would be a better option for a wide release then the 950 series. But at this point I think this is just wishful thinking.

    WM threshold has support for S810, S808, S617, S210, S208. So it has to be one of those.

    With price of around 270-300 that would make killer device

    Comparing with the 640XL, this could be the 650XL.

    So why did Microsoft cancel this exactly? Does Rubino offer up a reason as to why? Because to me, and many others, this looks like a superior phone to what they just put out with the 950 and 950 XL. That makes zero sense. And yet they still have plans for a 650?? Doesn't make any sense. The rumored specs for the 850 are more than sufficient given W10's efficiency with any dual-core or higher processor, at least with my experience. Really let down by this. I don't want to see anymore cheap phones from Microsoft, and yet I feel like that's all i see them release. There was a time where they advertised and pushed out the 640 and 640 XL hard, more so then what we're seeing with the 950 line. Lumia's are being known widely with the average consumer as the "cheap cricket phones" and this news doesn't help that. Get your head out of your a** Microsoft. What on earth are you doing with WP? Honestly. One mistake after the other. The surface phone news is the only positive to come out in months. Oh well. The 850 would've been a terrific smartphone, and worthy successor to the terrific 830.
