Microsoft is holding an event on 6 October where it is expected to launch a slew of new hardware including the latest Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL smartphones.
Officially called the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, the phones were briefly live on the United Kingdom version of the Microsoft store and offered up the specs but no pricing.
Microsoft has been reportedly developing the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL Windows powered smartphones to be released next month.
The larger Lumia 950 XL was said to have a 5.7-inch WQHD display, while the Lumia 950’s display measures 5.2-inches. A leaked press render of the Lumia 950 XL has surfaced.
Next is more personalisation options, allowing you to customize colours in the left pane and for email selection (you can pre-select from a list or add an image of your own to draw from), as well as switch between the previous light theme and a new dark theme. As I previously mentioned, Lumia flagships have always been keen on their cameras.
If Microsoft continues its exclusive deal with Qualcomm, then Intel has to get in bed with Google’s ambitious grand master plan to saturate the world with affordable Android One smartphones.
That isn’t to say that these listings don’t reveal anything new. Both the device will come with 20-megapixel camera with Zeiss optics and 32GB storage further expandable up to 2TB. The estimated costs for the Lumia 950 XL will be €749 (£541), whereas the Lumia 950 might retail for €659 (£476).
The one thing we still don’t know is how much these devices will cost. In the rush to push software to users, tech companies like Microsoft ignore or dismiss the need to keep users informed. Windows 10 users are also seeing a handful of other apps being update such as Voice Recorder and Xbox app.
Ever since Windows 10’s release, there have been privacy concerns surrounding the operating system’s various tracking features.
The welcome post from Microsoft explains that the move comes as a result of its plan to bring the Windows and Devices teams together.
Microsoft has been under fire from privacy advocates with a few describing Windows 10 as the most invasive Windows yet.
“If you ever find a situation where our software is not behaving the way it should with your privacy settings, please let us know here”. It will be powered by a 3,000 mAh battery that will be enabled with features like wireless charging and fast charging.
