Microsoft lists flagship Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL online

Microsoft jumped the gun a bit and went live with a listing for the Lumia 950 flagship Windows smartphone today, ahead of its official announcement. There were two devices, the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950XL, which we have hears about thanks to previous leaks and rumours. The prices weren’t listed but several key specifications, along with images were posted to the site.

The base line Lumia 950 comes equipped with a 5.2 inch 2560×1440 display, a 20 megapixel camera, 32GB of internal storage and it is capable of recognizing up to 2TB of expandable storage.

The Lumia 950XL on the other hand will be a larger device, with a 5.7-inch display running at the same resolution. All other listed specs remain the same between the two devices. Obviously these devices will also usher in the launch of Windows 10 for smartphones.

Microsoft’s official announcement for its new flagship smartphones is expected to take place next week at a Windows event in New York. Aside from that, other rumours have suggested that we will see Microsoft launch the ‘Surface Pen’, a new smart cover, while the new phones will sport USB Type-C connections and be capable of wireless charging.

KitGuru Says: Microsoft’s new Lumia devices are expected to be quite powerful, making for a truly capable Windows phone. However, it still remains to be seen whether or not developers will follow and support the platform. Windows Phone has been struggling in that area for quite some time. Are any of you running a Windows Phone? Are you happy with it?

    Looks like the most competitive phone to date. And if Continuum is a thing, I’m excited.

    I love my 930, I just wish app developers would get their head out of their ass and start “developing” (fliping a few switches in the android version, windows are making it easy you now).

    I have been very happy so far with my 920 and I am waiting for the 950 before upgrading

  • Tim Sutton

    I love my Lumia 1520, so much so that there’s not a lot of reason to upgrade, it’s still brilliant compared to any phone.

    I’ll be interested to see how W10 works on it, but since the Lumia 1520 is already more powerful and has more RAM than the W10 tablet I just bought I’m not expecting any issues at all 🙂

    Side note, Windows Phone is great and I’ll be sorry to see it go. Through work I’ve had several Android phones, a Blackberry and an iPhone while I’ve owned the 1520, and the user experience is best on the Lumia. By quite a distance.
