Lumia 950 XL Battery Details Unveiled – Are We Getting A Removable Battery In A Flagship Smartphone?


With only one day remaining for software giant Microsoft to unveil its flagship duo, Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 950, we have uncovered more details of the larger screen sized handset, only this time, the details revolve around its battery capacity.

Lumia 950 XL Leaked To Feature A Removable Battery – Battery Capacity Details Have Also Been Given 

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. Now, according to the leaked image, the 5.7 inch handset is going to feature a 3,340mAh battery and best of all, it is going to be removable. After looking at a string of flagship smartphones that have non-removable batteries, Microsoft might finally go down a different road with its Lumia 950 XL.

There have been some debates that state that removable batteries do not last long as non-removable cells since they are constantly removed from their housing, which causes oxidation between the golden battery contacts. We are not sure what to make of this, but we assume that Windows 10 Mobile will bring some level of improvements that will allow users to enjoy a hefty amount of battery life. Additionally, Lumia 950 XL is going to be sporting Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810, which is terrible in keeping its octa-core’s thermals in check.

The resolution being rendered from the 5.7 inch screen of the device is going to be 2560 by 1440 and it will also have 3GB of RAM present underneath it. The body surrounding Lumia 950 XL is going to be made up of polycarbonate and a 20MP rear camera sensor is also going to be incorporated. A 5MP front camera is going to supplement the rear camera, and another notable change that is most likely going to be present in Lumia 950 XL is that it will sport a Type-C USB port.

Under the right conditions, the Type-C interface is capable of data transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps, which means that the smartphone will not only able to charge faster (thanks to a Snapdragon 810 present inside it), but it will also be able to transfer data at much higher speeds compared to MicroUSB 2.0. Lumia 950 XL is also going to have 32GB of internal storage, and will provide support for a 2TB MicroSD card, which is overkill in our opinion.

We suspect that the upcoming device is not going to be cheap by any means and we will keep you updated with the latest information when Microsoft officially unveils its flagship duo.
