Microsoft is planning on coming out with devices that will run the new Windows 10 OS. Even though there have been lots of rumors spreading around, up until now we have seen and heard very little regarding these upcoming devices. But things have changed ever since a Chinese site showcased an image of the Lumia 950 being submitted to tests.
Microsoft might have tackled with the 940 number that was meant to be included in the name of the devices (Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL) and changed it to 950 version instead. So, you might be able to tell that the XL gizmo will be the phablet variant out of the two devices.
As far as specs are concerned, here is what Phone Arena claims: “The Microsoft Lumia 950 XL is expected to feature a 5.7-inch display with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. The Snapdragon 810 SoC is under the hood, with an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, with 32GB of expandable storage. A 20MP PureView camera will be on the back with a 5MP front-facing camera handling selfies. An iris scanner is on board, along with a USB Type-C port, and a native pen” the site reported.
