Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Features

The Microsoft Lumia 950 XL alongside the Lumia 950 is the latest flagship smartphone in the Windows 10 lineup of Microsoft. The two devices are the first to ship out with the latest Windows Phone version, that Windows 10 is. Windows 10 comes with a more refined Metro UI as well as one experience promise across all your devices including laptops and tablets. On paper, the Lumia 950 XL is the most powerful Windows Phone device ever launched and matches, pretty much any Android phone when it comes to spec to spec comparison. One thing that you may miss on the Lumia 950 XL when compared to Android flagships is the lack of a Fingerprint scanner. You could argue that Windows Phone does not have the need or requirement for so much raw power, but that is a debate that we would leave for the users to wage in. The specifications and details of the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL include:

  • The phone comes with a large 5.7 inch OLED Quad HD display which gives it a pixel density of 518 PPI.
  • Just like the Microsoft Lumia 950, the Lumia 950 XL comes with a display with ClearBlack technology and Super sensitive touch. You do have Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for added security on your phone.
  • The phone is powered by Snapdragon 810 SoC, with each of the eight cores powered at 2.0 GHz.
  • On the memory front, the Lumia 950 XL comes with 32 GB internal memory and a micro SD slot that supports cards up to 200 GB.
  • The battery on board is a removable 3340 mAh removable unit, which definitely qualifies the phone into our list of big battery smartphones. And since the battery is removable, you can replace the default back panel with a fancier and a more colorful one.
  • Camera on the Lumia 950 XL is the same as the Lumia 950, which is a 20 MP Auto Focus unit on the rear and 5 MP on the front. The rear camera has a f/1.9 aperture and 26 mm focal length.
  • On the connectivity front, you get LTE, Bluetooth, WiFi, NFC and GPS.
  • Lumia 950 XL, just like most modern smartphones comes with USB Type-C connector.
