lumia

Microsoft came up with flagship Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL after a long break of 18 months. This is third of kind, as the announcement came after Apple and Google releasing their high end phones (Apple’s Iphone 6S & 6S Plus, Google’s Nexus 5X & 6P). These 6 phones are to be launched soon and it would be worth noticing the competition among theses internet giants.

When talking about specs Microsoft has done a good job but its matter of choice as well. The phones are backed by powerful OS Windows 10. As reported 5.2-inch Lumia 950 and 5.7-inch Lumia 950 XL are powerful devices: OLED screens (564ppi and 518ppi); octa-core and hexa-core processors — with “tablet class liquid cooling” technology; a 20-megapixel camera with triple LED flash. Pictures taken by these phones haven’t been published yet.
The phones comes with a unique feature called Continuum, which lets you use a large-screen display and with a Display Dock, you can even plug in a keyboard and mouse and run a Windows-esque environment capable of using universal Windows 10 apps. It’s not quite a PC replacement, but it is something no one else is offering.
The phones support USB type C for faster charging.
