To us, it sounds like a downgrade compared to the Microsoft Lumia 540 and it makes no sense why Microsoft would be launching successor of Lumia 540 so soon since latter is only few months old. Other than slight improvement in processor department, the Lumia 550 is a downgrade in every way compared to 540. It has smaller display, lower resolution rear + front camera (vs 8MP rear + 5MP FFC on L540) and probably a smaller battery too.
