Lumia 650’s US availability details to be announced soon

Announced by Microsoft last month, the Lumia 650 went on pre-order across Europe the day it was made official – it’s now available for purchase in most European countries. Sadly, there has been no official information on when it will go on sale in the US.

That was, however, until now as the Redmond, Washington-based company has said that it’ll be revealing the device’s US availability info soon – “later this week” to be precise.

@myke115 Please stay tuned … we’ll be posting some official updates on social media later this week! #TeamLumia #Lumia650

Previous rumors had suggested that the Windows 10-powered mid-range handset, which carries a $200 price tag, will be launched in the United States sometime in April this year. Among carriers, Cricket is currently confirmed to be carrying it.
