Working Microsoft Lumia 950 XL running Windows 10 Mobile emerges


Earlier this week we reported the first 10 Lumia phones to receive Windows 10 Mobile and today we get to see a prototype of a supposed Lumia 950 XL running the newest software. This comes after Microsoft successfully launched the mature version of Windows 10, albeit some raised eyebrows on their stance of user privacy.

The model numbers of the 950 line were still vague in the past – purported to continue with the 940 after the current-gen 930 flagship but this article says Microsoft might skip one number ahead. Codenamed the Cityman, the device has been rumoured to be phablet sized, a 6-inch screen running at 2K (Quad HD) resolution to be precise. It will allegedly run a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and be paired with 3GB of RAM for speedy performance. Internal storage is said to be 32GB but those who need more can opt for the microSD expansion.


The shutters will be a 20-megapixel Pureview (back) and 5-megapixel (front), the former equip with a three LED flash. Powering the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL is a 3,300 mAh removable battery and USB Type-C will be the port of choice.

We hope Windows 10 Mobile will tone down the privacy intrusions or at least be more forward about it and allow users to change the settings easily. In the past, the device has been said to be revealed at a grand announcement sometime in October, and be out on the shelves in November.
