It is official. Microsoft has officially announced its Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, so let’s see what impressive features have been incorporated into its newly announced flagship smartphones.

Both Lumia Smartphones Feature A Triple LED flash And For Cooling Its Powerful Processors, Microsoft Has Taken A Very Clever Step

During Microsoft’s official event, the firm unveiled both of its Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL. The larger smartphone features a 5.7 inch screen size while Lumia 950 has a 5.2 inch screen. 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)

Now here is the most interesting thing about both smartphones. 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.


There is 32GB of internal storage, and users will have tons of external storage flexibility because both smartphones also provide storage support up to a 2TB MicroSD card. Another upgrade compared to previous models is that Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 950 feature a Type-C USB port, which, according to the company has a transfer rate of 5Gbps (in actuality, Type-C USB ports can transfer up to 10Gbps, but the aforementioned speed has been given due to interface limitations obviously).

Microsoft Is Going To Throw A WWDC 2016 Afterparty In Hope To Lure In Developers

  • Lumia 950 – $549
