Microsoft in process to launch next Lumia flagship device
In related news, Microsoft is expected to unveil its Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL devices by the end of this year. Both the phones will be high-end, but the Lumia 950 XL is considered as the next flagship Windows phone. Though there have been a few specifications leaks and mockups, a Chinese site on Tuesday showcased a prototype version of the Lumia 950 XL. The gadget is seen inside a protective black casing, which makes it difficult to see details, but confirms that it will be shipped with a USB Type-C support.
The Verge has confirmed the accuracy of the images, saying the tech firm is testing the handset in a casing to prevent leaks. Microsoft is making preparations to launch both the handsets; 5.2-inch Lumia 950 and 5.7-inch Lumia 950 XL, during an event in late September or October. The bigger Lumia will support Surface Pen technology along with a new smart cover, which will have a rounded cut to allow easy access to notifications. The devices will be equipped with a 20-megapixel PureView camera, and the XL will have triple LED flash. Both the Lumias will feature Snapdragon 808 processors and 3GB of RAM.
