Getting A Free Lumia 950 Is An Offer Only Valid For Those Living In Canada And/Or The United States

If you are residing in the United States, or Canada, and if you have a penchant for owning the ‘top of the line’ Windows 10 Mobile flagship smartphones, then Microsoft has a deal that you simply cannot ignore, primarily because it involves you getting a Lumia 950 without an extra charge. However, before you become eligible for the offer, you will first have to purchase an unlocked Lumia 950 XL. While the offer is definitely a limited time offer, Microsoft has not pointed out when it will expire, but that certainly does not mean that you sit idly by.

Given below are the processing chips that are going to be present in both smartphones.

  • Lumia 950 XL – Running an octa-core processor (which is present in Qualcomm Snapdragon 810)
  • Lumia 950 – Running a hexa-core processor (which is present in Qualcomm Snapdragon 808)

Similar to Xperia Z5 Premium, both devices are incorporated with a unique liquid cooling solution that will allow both processors to maintain their clock speeds while keeping their temperatures in check. This will also prevent both processors from thermally throttling, which is a very clever thing done on Microsoft’s part. Additionally, there is also a 20MP rear camera sensor present on both devices, and it is incorporated with a 5th generation optical image stabilization chip.

Furthermore, the rear camera sensor will effortlessly be able to snap images brightly in low-level environments and 4K video recording is also supported by both sensors. In order to snap images and selfies more comfortably, there is also a dedicated camera button present on both Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL. According to the company, the OIS chip is much more sensitive and accurate compared to previous generation optical image stabilization chips. The display present on both displays is an OLED one.
