Microsoft will start selling their latest flagship – the Lumia 950 and the 950 XL end of this month. The Lumia devices will be introduced in the US markets on November 20 and will be available exclusively on AT&T. However, Microsoft will also start selling the unlocked variant of the Lumia 950 XL on the same day.
As we reported earlier, Satya Nadella had announced that both the devices will be available in India starting from December, that being said there is still no information on the price tags these phones will carry in the Indian context.
Microsoft is all set to release the Windows 10 Mobile on November 12 along with the Thunderbolt 2 update. The fall build will bring about a host of improvements and is expected to fix most of the bugs plaguing the ongoing version of the Windows 10.
A quick recap on the specifications, the Lumia 950 will be fitted with a 5.2-inch QHD display and will be powered by the hexa-core Snapdragon 808 SoC clocked at 1.8GHz and paired with a 3GB of RAM. The Lumia 950 XL on the other hand will come with a larger 5.7-inch QHD display offering a pixel density of 518ppi which in slightly less as opposed to the 564ppi in the Lumia 950. The 950 XL is powered by the Snapdragon 810 clocked at 2.0GHz and paired with a 3GB of RAM.
Both the devices share the same innards when it comes to imaging. The primary camera sensor is a 20-Megapixel unit with Optical Image Stabilization and supports native 4K video recording. The secondary camera shapes up in the form of a 5-Megapixel sensor. Both the device come with an expandable memory card slot and Type-C USB port. Microsoft is piggybacking on the Windows 10 success and intends to build a sustainable Windows ecosystem, which is the very reason the Redmond company is introducing a Windows 10 update even for the Xbox gaming console. Microsoft will also start selling the Display Dock which will bring the continuum feature across the Windows devices.
