Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950XL Launch

Microsoft Lumia 950 Specs and Lumia 950XL Specs: Things you need to know

Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL really look like the leaked designs we have seen before. They have a triple flash on the back surface to support the 20MP PureView camera, just exactly like what we heard. Specially, the phones also sport a button only used for taking photos.

Speaking more specifically, the rear shooter comes with a 1/2.4-inch sensor, OIS (5th gen), and Carl Zeiss lens (f/1.9), able to record 216p videos with Hi-Fi sound. In addition, the duo have 5MP front-facing cam on each one, which is good enough for a beautiful selfie, right?!

According to Microsoft, Lumia 950 is “the most productive phone you’ve ever picked up.” We think it hints that both Lumia 950 and 950XL will help you work, relax and do other things very effectively. And it seems right since this Lumia couple is equipped with the Continiumm function, allowing you to connect and use a phone like a destop with basic office apps. All of them will be supported by the Display Dock set consisting of a HDMI and 3 USB ports. Besides, they even feature the phase-change liquid cooling technology from the Surface tablets. As a result, you may not need to worry much about heating issue on Lumia 950 and 950XL.

Other Lumia 950 Specs include a 5.2-inch 2K screen and a Snapdragon 808 chip while Lumia 950XL Specs have a 5.7-inch 2K screen and a Snapdragon 810 chip. Both come with 32GB of expandable storage, 3GB RAM, and a USB Type-C port. Apart from those, we notice that quick-charging support is also available, enabling the 3,000mAh battery of Lumia 950 and 3,340mAh batt of Lumia 950XL to get 50% of the capacity in just 30 min.

Microsoft Lumia 950 Price and Lumia 950XL Price: Less than Apple iPhone 6S and 6S Plus

At the launch event, their prices were also revealed. Lumia 950 is priced at $549 (RM2,366 as the Lumia 950 price in Malaysia) and Lumia 950XL at $649 (RM2,797). In general, the prices are less than the new Apple iPhone 6S ($649) and 6S Plus ($749), so they can be strong competitors among latest flagships on the market now!


Finally, Microsoft has released the Windows 10 phones Lumia 950 and 950XL with packages of strong specs and beautiful designs. Hopefully this duo will bring the company more success this year 😉 !
