    For a so-called canceled phone, it seems more and more supposed leaks are coming to light. Check this latest rumored leak from GSM Arena. Is there any solid information regarding the status of this phone? Is it canceled or has it been revived?

    Another leak of the Microsoft Lumia 850, now in 4 color schemes - GSMArena.com news

    I wouldn't mind if MS released this. They need at least one mid-range device that's made for Windows 10.

    I still think theres a 50/50 chance of it happening, those leaked photos are from baidu and I remember they have posted a few Microsoft devices that did indeed surface to be true.
    Now as far as specs is concerned this seems to be extremely good.
    SD617, "affordable flagship" price, 5.7 inch, full hd screen, iris scanner, its everything I wanted from a 8xx series windows phone. Microsoft would be incredibly stupid to not make this.
    Meanwhile, the Lumia 650 rumors are extremely underwhelming, a crappy SD4xx processor, absolutely nothing special and it would get lost in the sea of android phones that offer way better value for money.

    I really do hope that Microsoft really brings that rumored Lumia 850. Those specs as decent upper mid-range specs. The leaked renders look like an attractive and understated design also. But like all other offerings from Microsoft, I bet if they do in fact bring this device, they'll price it straight outta the competition with an over-zealous price. I think a great price point for this will be $299 max.

    Well, FWIW we did get a lot of webOS info and leaks of would-be plans post-mortem.

    Security on cancelled products is a lot looser than ones that are actually going to come out. That probably has something to do with the volume of new leaks we're getting.

    Tbh why 650 has metal design when 850 is fully plastic so are 950 and XL? What is Microsoft thinking? I'm good with those designs but then the logic of Microsoft is just unthinkable

    I believe the 850 also has a metal rim similar to the Lumia Icon, 925, 830. Which makes the reason why 950 and 950 XL look like they do all the more confusing.

    Feels like we need a few renders of what they 850 design language is.

    Looks very iphone-esque, especially in white.

    Really disappointed with the iPhone-esque round corner design. We've lost the beauty and character of true Lumia fabula design. Why can't we get a Lumia 920 style flagship successor design? Even continuing with the Lumia 925 / 1520 / 830 style is far more preferable. I need my sharp / pointy corners. Lumia should have a unique character and not look like every other cookie-cutter phone.

    At this point, I'm holding on to my Lumia 1520 for the foreseeable future.
