Lumia 850 images leaked

Rumored Lumia : According to OnLeaks, the French leaker purportedly found images of the at-one-time cancelled white Lumia 850. With the recent launch of the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, it looks like there was another Lumia on the horizon for Microsoft. The Lumia 850 was supposedly going to sport the same design features of previous Lumias with curved edges, matte plastic, and camera reminiscent of the Lumia 640 XL.

The Lumia 850 has what looks like metallic trim, a removable back and 3.5 mm headphone jack on the bottom of the device, and the dimensions are rumored to be 155.9 mm x 77.23 mm x 6.92 mm. Evleaks added on Twitter that the Lumia 850, or as he calls it, “Honjo”,  also has a front-facing flash, gold trim, and a gold Microsoft logo on the back.

.@OnLeaks In real, non-CAD life, Honjo has gold-colored trim and a golden Microsoft logo on the back (as well as a front-facing flash).
With all the problems surrounding carrier availability of the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, it might be nice to have another mid-range Lumia option. OnLeaks revealed that Lumia 850 was one of two phones that were cancelled at the last minute by Satya Nadella. The Lumia 750 was also going to be release alongside the Lumia 550, Lumia 950, and Lumia 950 XL. Based on his source, OnLeaks confirms that the Lumia 850 is still supposedly going to be released (translated from French by Bing):
