Microsoft has just announced a new mid range Windows 10 Mobile smartphone

But isn’t as good as the Lumia 950 XL

Microsoft announced a brand new smartphone, the Lumia 650, which runs the latest Windows software.

The highlight of the phone is really the Windows 10 Mobile software – the Lumia 650 is one of just four devices which now offer the latest Windows software, the Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 550 completing the lineup.

Latest software

Sadly, there’ll be no continuum for the Lumia 650, continuum is one of the best new features on the Windows 10 Mobile software. Continuum allows you to connect your phone up to a monitor or TV to use a selection of apps on a larger screen, and treat your phone just like a portable PC.

The Lumia 650 is launching in Europe, including the UK, on February 18 but it isn’t clear whether or when  it’ll be available in other markets including the US.
