Microsoft’s latest hardware event will commence on October 6th and there has been a great deal of speculation surrounding the possible announcements. Invites have already been sent out to members of the press, but little is known about what will be revealed. We might see a glimpse of the Surface 4 or Microsoft’s latest attempt to infiltrate the highly-competitive smartphone market. Previously, there was a leak which suggested two new handsets are being readied to compete at the higher-end.
The 5.2-inch Lumia 950 supposedly features 3GB RAM, a 20-megapixel rear camera, QHD display and 32GB of storage with a microSD expansion slot. Another model dubbed the 950 XL is fairly similar but opts for a 5.5-inch display, faster Qualcomm 810 processor compared to the 950’s Qualcomm 808 and support for Microsoft’s pen technology.
Both devices are rumoured to implement USB-C charging ports in a similar vein to the One Plus 2. On another note, the Microsoft Band could receive an update but details are fairly sparse. The event is located in New York City and begins at 10 a.m EDT. Hopefully, Microsoft can create an enthusiastic reaction to their latest mobile announcements and try to improve Windows Mobile’s poor market share.
