Microsoft Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 950 are official

Wednesday, October 07, 2015



Welcome back in the game, Microsoft! Today, the technological giant announced the first new Lumia flagships in what seems like ages — the Lumia 950 and 950 XL. Under their modest appearance, the two pack quite a hardware punch, utilizing the most non-compromising spec sheets in Lumia history. Let's dissect the configurations and see what interesting stuff Microsoft has in store for its smartphone fans!

The Lumia 950 and 950 XL boast elegant and understated, but rather mundane polycarbonate designs. Those who expected Lumia phones to come back with an all-aluminum bang will be left disappointed. Still, the former Nokia engineers working in Microsoft's smartphone division do have a way with plastic, sculpting the first Windows 10 devices into pleasant and ergonomic shapes. The smartphones are available in black and white, not the most vibrant selection of colors out there.

Lumia 950 with a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. That works out to a 424ppi pixel density. A Snapdragon 808 is under the hood with a hexagon CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU handling graphics. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of internal-expandable storage. A 20MP PureView camera adorns the back while a 5MP front-facing snapper handles selfies and video chats. A triple LED flash allows you to take well-lit pictures in low-light conditions.

The Microsoft Lumia 950XL in its turn features a 5.7-inch glass with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. That gives the screen a 515ppi pixel density. The 64-bit Snapdragon 810 chipset drives the phone, carrying an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native expandable storage. Like the Lumia 950, the camera on the 950 XL is said to come with a 20 MP PureView snapper on the back, and a 5MP camera on the front. Both phones are expected to arrive soon, carrying the new Windows 10 Mobile out of the box.


Then there's Continuum – a feature that truly separates the Lumia 950 XL\950 from other phablets. Basically, you may hook up the smartphone to an external monitor, a keyboard, and a mouse for desktop PC-like productivity. The new tech was demonstrated on stage and it looked pretty handy. But there's a catch. You'll need a Microsoft Display Dock to take advantage of Continuum. It plugs into the Lumia's USB Type-C port, providing the necessary connectors and ports for hooking up the handset to various peripherals. 


The Lumia 950 price is set at $550 and the Lumia 950 XL is set at $649  that's the full retail price. It's a sweet price point that's $100 below the cost of the top-tier smartphones from others like the Apple iPhone 6.

Microsoft said that the new Lumia release date is pinned for November, so you'd need to wait at least a month until you're able to buy the handset.
