Live From Microsoft’s Lumia Press Event

Microsoft Corporation is expected to push Windows 10 platform and show how it works across desktop and mobile devices. The live stream will be available at Microsoft’s own website when the event kicks off.


Microsoft is hosting an event tomorrow that will see the introduction of two new Lumia devices, the first flagship phones since the company acquired Nokia in 2014. While the software maker will reveal new Surface and Lumia devices on Tuesday, it has also scheduled to be on stage with its major PC partners in the coming weeks. A free upgrade to Windows 10 for existing Windows phones might be announced.

It doesn’t appear that there’s much left to find out about the Lumia 950 XL, such has been the extent of the leaks.

The Lumia 950 is said to be a premium-level phone powered by a Snapdragon 808 64-bit Hexa core processor, with 3GB of RAM.

Previously, we were able to report the leaked images of both Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 950, along with the hardware that was going to be present inside them.

Pricing is expected to be around £482 for the Lumia 950 and £548 for the Lumia 950 XL. Microsoft may also discuss a few updates to the operating system itself. Both are expected to have Quad HD displays, 32GB of built-in storage and 20-megapixel built-in cameras. But what it offers is still unclear. On top of that, a 14-inch model might also be in the making, with Microsoft expected to unveil it during the same event.

The Surface Pro 4 tablet has been described as one made for professionals. Windows 10 is unleashing only its full potential if it is running on all types of devices.

The Microsoft Band was nearly a testing bed of tech, crammed full of sensors in what felt like an unfinished and uncomfortable design.


As for the second generation fitness wearable, leaked images purporting to be press renderings show a redesigned Band with a curved display, metal accents, and physical buttons on the side. In addition, it was reported that the keyboard dock will come in two variants – a thinner and lighter version for regular users and one that’s thicker and has several ports intended for high-performance usage.
