Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL full specs outed
Per yearly update of smartphone lineups, Microsoft was supposed to bring the Lumia 940 and Lumia 950 XL late last year but the software giant didn’t, instead, it’s been reported that the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are going to be launched this year.
This weekend, the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL were featured in a set of leaked internal documents that outlined the specifications of both devices as well as another smartphone called the Lumia 550. It’s widely believed that the trio of Windows-powered smartphones, alongside the sequel to last year’s Microsoft Band, will make an official appearance at Microsoft’s October 6th event in New York.
According to the purportedly leaked docs, the Microsoft Lumia 950 will pack a 5.2″ Quad HD (probably 1440 x 2560 pixels) touchscreen, a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset, 3GB of RAM, 32GB storage and 3,000mAh battery.
On the other hand, the larger Microsoft Lumia 950 XL features a 5.7″ display with a similar Quad HD resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, a strong combo of 3GB RAM/32GB ROM and a 3,300mAh battery. Both Lumia 950 models will sport 20-megapixel PureView primary cameras as well as 5-megapixel selfie snappers up front. The Windows 10-powered machines were said to be carrying USB type-C connectors but for now we aren’t very sure of the ports’ USB version (ie micro USB 2.0 or 3.0).
Finally, we have the Microsoft Lumia 550. This entry-level device will feature 5″ 720p display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Under the hood, you’ll find a gig of RAM and 8GB ROM clubbed with a quad-core 1.1GHz Snapdragon processor (possibly a Snapdragon 210).
Lumia 550 will take photos via its 5-megapixel rear camera that features a LED flash and selfies will be served via the 2-megapixel snapper at the front. The phone will carry a 128GB microSD card slot and a 1,905mAh battery.
Microsoft invitation for the October 6th event.
The three smartphones are speculated to be getting officially unveiled on October 6th. At the New York City press event, Microsoft is also expected to take the wraps off the Microsoft Band 2 as well as the latest tablet from its Surface lineup, Microsoft Surface Pro 4.
