Is this the Malaysian pricing for the Lumia 950 / 950 XL?


The Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL will launch in Malaysia on 15th December. The duo are Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 flagship smart phones that would go head on with today’s high-end devices.

With our fluctuating currency, be prepared to fork out more for the Lumia 950 / 950 XL when they our local shelves. From the looks of it, it will definitely cost more than their former Nokia Lumia 930.

According to a thread over at Lowyat forum, a user by the name TBMOnline has revealed the alleged pricing as follows:

Microsoft Lumia 950 Dual SIM – RM2,699
Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Dual SIM – RM2,999
Microsoft Display Dock – RM309

We can’t confirm if this is final, but the said user appears to be an online rep for retailer Tan Boon Ming. At RM2,699, this puts it on par with the Galaxy Note5, Xperia Z5 and Huawei Mate S in terms of pricing.

To recap on the specs, the Lumia 950 has a 5.2″ Quad HD display with a Snapdragon 808 processor that’s mated to 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. It gets a 20MP f/1.9 PureView camera with triple-LED flash plus shake-free assistance of an Optical Image Stabilisation. The front gets a 5MP f/2.4 camera and keeping the lights on is a 3,000mAh capacity battery that supports Fast Charge, Wireless Charging and it uses USB Type-C.

Meanwhile, the larger Lumia 950 XL gets a bigger screen at 5.7″ and a minor bump in specs. The display still does Quad HD while the processor gets a higher end Snapdragon 810. The battery gets an increase too at 3,340mAh capacity.
