The big news regarding Microsoft’s new smartphones, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL is that they will feature Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology. This type of technology means the handsets will charge up to 60% within the first half an hour of charging. A dual-LED might also be included for the first time ever in a Microsoft gizmo.
LG G4, Motorola Droid Turbo and Sony Xperia Z3 Plus also have the Quick Charge 2.0 technology included. Apparently Microsoft’s Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL will support this new addition courtesy of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 (Lumia 950) and Snapdragon 810 (Lumia 950 XL) that are under the hood.
The Quick Charge 2.0 tech is believed to be the number one feature that all the premium smartphones rock. Sadly, the OnePlus 2 device will not sport the Quick Charging feature, something that might be resented by fans.
Just to freshen up your memory, let’s recall some of the key specs and elements that these two upcoming Lumia devices rock.
The Lumia 950 sports a 5.2-inch display with a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor as mentioned above and 3 GB of RAM. As far as internal storage, the device has 32GB as well as a MicroSD card slot in case you want to expand the internal storage capacity. Users have HSPA, GSM, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 2.0 as well as microUSB in terms of connectivity and let’s not forget the Type-C USB support. The battery included in the Lumia 950 is a 3,000 mAh detachable one.
Lumia 950 XL on the other hand has a bigger display, this being a 5.7- inch one. Under the hood, the device is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. Again, users have 32GB internal storage plus the MicroSD card slot option and USB Type-C support. The battery found in Lumia 9520 XL is a bit larger, this being a 3,300 mAh one, also detachable. These two Microsoft devices will be launched with the brand new Windows 10 OS.
