Microsoft is unveiling a couple of devices tomorrow evening at 9PM which include its new flagships, the Lumia 950 and 950 XL. Earlier we’ve seen some leaks of its specs, and now we get a clearer look at the overall device thanks to high resolution photos that had just surfaced online.
In terms of design, both models come with a standard clean look with the use of on-screen buttons. Over at the top, we get a closer look at the IR lamp which is used for its Iris scanner for Windows Hello. This lets you unlock your phone with a quick stare without having to use passwords. At the front, it gets a 5MP selfie camera with wide angle lens.
Towards the back, it gets a polycarbonate body like its predecessor and much emphasis has been given to its PureView camera in terms of design. Both will feature a 20MP f/1.9 camera and it looks like both Lumia 950 and 950 XL will get triple LED flash.
In terms of specs, the Lumia 950 is a compact 5.2 incher while the 950 XL is the larger phablet sibling at 5.7″. Both are having AMOLED display and they push Quad HD (2560×1440) resolution. Processor wise, the larger Lumia 950 XL gets a Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB of RAM while the smaller sibling gets a Snapdragon 808 processor that also comes with 3GB of RAM. Both gets 32GB of on-board storage which can be expanded further with microSD card.
Keeping the lights on is a 3,000mAh battery for the Lumia 950 and a larger 3,300mAh unit for the 950 XL. New for Microsoft is a USB Type-C connector which supports Qualcomm Quick Charge and also Qi Wireless Charging. As seen in the picture above, it looks like a dual-SIM variant is available as well.
