Microsoft has finally updated their smartphone lineup with two flagship devices. Both feature respectable specifications and run Windows 10 Mobile.
Lumia 930 from the first half of 2014 has been the Lumia flagship for a long time now. Finally with the launch of Windows 10 Mobile, Microsoft releases new high-end Lumias.
The Lumia 950 XL is the big brother. It has a great 5.7″ 1440p QHD AMOLED display, liquid cooled Snapdragon 810, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 3340mAh battery and a 20 megapixel camera.
Lumia 950 has a smaller display at 5.2″ and a Snapdragon 808 which is also liquid cooled. It also misses a little on the battery capacity, 3000mAh. Other specs are similar. Both have a USB Type-C charging and syncing port, 5MP front facing camera and microSD support for up to 200GB cards. Both phones will be available in November. The 950 is priced at $549 and the XL costs $649.
Microsoft was really marketing their new Continuum dock. It connects the phone to an external display and the phone acts like a Windows 10 computer.
Microsoft Band was also updated. The new version has curved AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass, new band material, a barometer to measure ascend and descent and the Cortana integration. The new band costs $249 and will be available for preorders later this month.
