First ‘Microsoft Lumia’ handset to be launched on November 11

Microsoft is set to launch its first-ever 'Microsoft Lumia' branded handset since the acquisition of Finnish device maker Nokia's smartphone business.

The 'Microsoft Lumia' will be a cost-friendly Windows smartphone - which the company has been teasing for quite some time now - will be launched on Tuesday, November 11; in time for the holiday shopping season this year.

Most of the features of the forthcoming Microsoft Lumia handset - which will apparently be a mid-range device - will be similar to the recently released Nokia Lumia 830; except for the branding.

The first Microsoft Lumia handset will feature a 5-inch HD display; a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor; 1GB of RAM; and a 5-megapixel camera. The handset will likely run Microsoft's Window Phone 8.1 mobile OS.

Going by reports, the Microsoft Lumia handset will be a colored smartphone, which will apparently come in color options like orange and green; and will clearly have Microsoft written on the back side. Though the pricing of the handset has not been officially disclosed by Microsoft thus far, it is speculated that the device's price-point will fall in the 'affordable' range.
