Microsoft opens pre-orders for Lumia 650 in Australia, priced at $299 with free case

Microsoft unveiled the Lumia 650, its newest Windows 10 Mobile handset, almost three months ago, and it's since made its way to various markets around the world. The device features relatively low-end specs, packaged in a premium, ultra-thin body with a metal frame, and according to the company, it's intended primarily for business customers.

The Lumia 650 is now available to pre-order in Australia, where it's priced at $299 AUD (roughly $225 USD) including GST. Its key specs include:

  • 5-inch AMOLED with HD (1280x720px) resolution and Gorilla Glass 3
  • Quad-core 1.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB onboard storage (plus microSD card support up to 200GB)
  • 8MP rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and 720p video recording at 30fps
  • 5MP front-facing camera with continous autofocus, 'video light' and 720p video at 30fps
  • Bluetooth 4.1
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with support for Wi-Fi calling
  • 4G LTE connectivity (bands 1, 3, 7, 8 and 20)
  • NFC support
  • microUSB 2.0 with Type B connector
  • Removable 2000mAh battery
  • 142 x 71 x 6.9mm; 122g

To sweeten the deal, Microsoft is also offering a free Incipio Octane Pure case for those who pre-order the Lumia 650 before its release in Australia, which is scheduled for May 23.
