Microsoft Delays Windows 10 Update For Older Lumias.

It seems now is the perfect time to make some serious noise. In some parts of Eastern Europe Windows Phones have a relatively high market share, meaning carriers have no problem marketing the handsets directly to consumers.Microsoft was planning to roll out the Windows 10 mobile upgrades to the Windows Phone 8.1 devices in December, but the users will need to wait until early 2016 to upgrade to the latest OS version. In the above ad we have Bulgarian carrier Vivacom promoting Microsoft’s new flagships as something the young boy is clearly hinting at rather persistently, with the tag line which roughly translates into “This christmas, say clearly/exactly when you want – the new Lumias with windows 10…” Setting up Microsoft’s rather expensive new handsets as as extremely desirable seems to me to be a good marketing strategy for the premium devices. The company on Friday confirmed that the Microsoft Lumia 550 will be going on sale in India priced at Rs. 9,399 starting Wednesday in Glossy White and Matte Black variants.

According to several top-ranking mobile device sites, the only phones from the Lumia family that are able to run the newest operating systems are Lumia 950XL and Lumia 950. The power and volume buttons are well spaced and wide enough for easy reach and Microsoft managed to style up the large rear camera as part of the 950 XL’s aesthetics.

It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 (MSM8909) 1.1 GHz quad-core processor, five-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus f/2.4 with LED Flash and a two megapixel front camera. However, in case you want to buy one of the new Lumia devices, then here are their specs: the smaller variant measures 145 x 73.2 x 8.2 mm, it weights 150 grams and has a large circular rear camera on the back of 20MP (using PureView technology, Carl Zeiss optics, OIS, autofocus, triple-LED RGB flash and which is capable of recording 4K videos), while on the front side sits a 5MP camera with an aperture of f/2.4. The Lumia 950 XL phablet has the same pair of cameras, but its processor is much faster, as Microsoft has used the latest Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 octa core CPU clocked at 2GHz, which runs with 3GB of RAM. The Lumia 550 features 4G LTE (Cat. 4) connectivity (with support for Indian LTE bands) and is claimed to support download speeds of up to 150Mbps and uploads of up to 50Mbps.

It comes backed by a replaceable 2100mAh battery, which according to Microsoft can deliver up to 28 days of standby time, 16 hours of talk time on 2G, 14 hours on 3G, and 17 hours on 4G. Moreover, it would seem that the tech giant has some fierce competition ahead when we take into consideration the total number of Android users and Microsoft’s projection for the next 3 years. But for them to take a higher stance, would depend on its operating system, which runs on Windows 10 – the same one that can be used on desktops and laptops. Mind you, even the 950 XL is not geared to run software that demands a lot of power – such as desktop versions of photo and video editing software, though the mobile versions are ample enough in some cases.
