Microsoft has accidentally preempted the upcoming announcement of the flagship Lumia 950 and 950 XL. According to a listing on Microsoft’s UK Store, both devices will feature a WQHD display and 20-megapixel rear camera with ZEISS optics. The 950’s 5-2 inch panel offers an enhanced pixels-per-inch rate and comes in a sensible size.
In contrast to this, the 950 XL is extremely large with a total display size of 5.7-inch. Additional information regarding the storage limits was divulged and it looks like both handsets will include 32GB as standard with a microSD slot allowing for up to 2TB of expansion. Early reports indicate the 950 series will utilize a USB-Type C connection and support fast charging. Microsoft is also bundling the handsets with their latest operating system.
The mid-high end market is awash with a number of exceptional value-for-money handsets including the One Plus 2 and Hauwei Honor 7. It’s been quite a while since Microsoft launched a top-tier handset and the specifications are usually more modest on Windows Phone due to the light resources required by the operating system. Microsoft is hoping to bring more customers to Windows Mobile as their current market share leaves a lot to be desired.
What do you think of the Windows Mobile platform?
