File this one under “probably a mistake”, but it appears a new Microsoft Lumia handset has been listed on Microsoft’s own website in Mexico. References to a Lumia 651 have been spotted, and is basically identical to the Lumia 650 but with a slightly bigger screen instead.
The Lumia 651 reference appears on Microsoft Mexico’s own directory of devices that are available for sale. It’s listed alongside the Lumia 550, 650, 950 and 950 XL. It’s its own listing too, and appears to have a 5.2 inch screen, according to the product details.
For those curious, here are the only details the listing provides:
- Display: 5.2 “
- Calling Time: Up to 16 hours (LTE) 1
- Front camera: 5 MP FF
- Main Camera: 8 MP
Could Microsoft be planning to release a slightly improved Lumia 650? We think it’s unlikely. This is probably an error on behalf of whoever is in charge of listing products on the Microsoft Mexico site. The listing is seen here on Microsoft Mexico’s “devices” page. It’ll likely be gone soon if it is an error, but if not, we could be in for an interesting next couple of weeks.
