Microsoft’s new Lumia 550, a device designed to deliver Windows 10 at an affordable price, is available now in select markets across Europe for just $139. The handset packs a 4.7-inch HD display, a quad-core processor, and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.

Microsoft first announced the Lumia 550 during its Windows 10 event on October 6, and although we knew it would be an entry-level device, the company did not confirm any specifications at the time. But now that the Lumia 550 is on sale, we know exactly what we get for that $139.

In addition to a full Windows 10 experience — with Cortana and Microsoft Office — the Lumia 550 brings a 4.7-inch HD (720p) display, a quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. It also boasts a microSD card slot, and a removable battery.

On the back of the Lumia 550, there’s a 5-megapixel camera with f/2.4 aperture and a single LED flash, which is capable of recording 720p video at 30 frames-per-second. There’s also a 2-megapixel shooter on the front of the device for video calls and selfies.

You can pick up the Lumia 550 today if you live in Europe, and Microsoft promises it will be available in other regions around the world “in the coming weeks.”
