    Starting today, Microsoft Lumia 550, Microsoft’s most affordable 4G LTE * smartphone running Windows 10, is available in select markets at $139 USD.**


    Sales of the new Microsoft Lumia 550, which offers the best of Microsoft to people who value affordability and uncompromised quality, begin today in Europe. Other regions around the globe will follow in the coming weeks.

    From the moment you turn on the Lumia 550 smartphone, you’ll experience Windows 10, signature Microsoft apps and services such as Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)***, Cortana ****, OneDrive, Outlook Mail and Outlook Calendar, and Skype on a premium 4.7” HD display. The familiar and consistent Windows 10 experience now extends from the PC and tablet to the phone.

    One Windows 10 experience

    With Lumia 550, if you create a Word document on your Surface Pro 4, just save it on OneDrive so that you can access it on your Lumia 550 on your commute home on the train and work on it further with the built-in Office apps on your phone.


    The same applies to Cortana. If you’re sitting at your laptop (such as the Surface Book) and ask Cortana to remind you to pick up something on the way home, Cortana syncs reminders across devices and will notify you on your Lumia at the right time and place.

    A premium display at a glance

    The Lumia 550 offers outstanding visuals on a 4.7-inch HD display.


    With outdoor readability enhancements, you can create, edit or view your PowerPoint presentations or Excel spreadsheets on the go, no matter where you are, and stay connected with friends via Skype, Facebook, Twitter, or WhatsApp.

    The Lumia 550 also includes Glance Screen that makes sure you never miss out on what is important by displaying time, date, notifications, and calendar entries without having to unlock or activate your phone.

    As fast as the speed of LTE

    To make sure you can access your documents online, the Lumia 550 connects using 4G LTE reaching download speeds of up to 150 Mbps and uploads of up to 50 Mbps. Additionally, Microsoft Edge is an all-new browser that’s great for on-the-go reading and more.

    The new Lumia 550 comes in matte black and glossy white, and will become available globally in select markets starting today.
