Phablet-sized Microsoft Lumia 950 XL outed in leaked renders
Microsoft may have put plans in place to unveil the Lumia 950 XL next month but the oversized Windows 10 smartphone has made an early public appearance courtesy of a leaked press photo that made rounds on the Internet on Monday morning.
The Microsoft Lumia 950 XL appeared in black and white color accents. Reports say the upcoming smartphone will measure 151.9 x 78.4 x 9. 9mm and while a source told GSMArena that the Lumia 950 XL will cost around 750 euros which is around 840 in US dollars.
Lumia 950 XL is believed to be packing a 5.7-inch Quad HD touchscreen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The smartphone will sport a 20-megapixel PureView camera while a 3,300mAh battery cell backs up the unit with electricity.
Microsoft will also announce the Lumia 950 smartphone on the same day as the Lumia 950 XL. The former sports a noticeably smaller body, thanks to its smaller touchscreen (5.2 inches) which features a the same Quad HD resolution.
The Lumia 950 also packs 3GB of RAM, 32GB storage, 20MP PureView camera and microSD card slot. The device will be powered by a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor instead and the battery capacity stops at 3,000mAh. Both handsets will feature USB type-C connectors and 5-megapixel selfie cameras.
The PC giant Microsoft is also expected to introduce the Band 2 wearable, Surface Pro 4 tablet and a third Windows smartphone called the Lumia 550 at the October 6th New York event.
