Microsoft has launched 2 flagship smartphones, Lumia 950XL and Lumia 950. Both these phone run on the latest Windows 10 platform and will be available in November.

Microsoft Lumia 950XL, priced at $649, features a 5.7-inch QuadHD AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. It is powered by Qualcomm Octacore Snapdragon 810 chipset with big.LITTLE configuration that has four 64 bit Cortex A53 processor (low-performing) and four 64bit Cortex A57 processor (high-performing). The chipset comes bundled with Adreno 430 for graphics. In terms of memory, the Lumia 950XL has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage that can be further expanded via microSD card slots up to 200GB.

The phone packs a 20-megapixel autofocus rear camera with ZEISS optics, 5th gen Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), f/1.9 aperture, triple RGB LED flash and 4K recording. A 5-megapixel front-facing camera has f/2.4 aperture, wide-angle lens, and can record videos in 1080p.

Under the hood, the Lumia 950XL has a 3340mAh of removable battery that supports quick charging as well as wireless charging. According to Microsoft, the USB Type-C cable can charge 50% of the phone in less than 30mins. It also uses liquid cooling technology to cool down the phone, which is mostly welcomed considering the heating issues related with Snapdragon 810 chipset.

There is no fingerprint sensor like most of today’s flagship, but the Lumia 950XL comes with Windows Hello biometric system that unlocks the device by just looking at your face. But the most useful feature of the device has to be Continuum. With the help of Microsoft Display Dock, you can connect the phone with a display and use it as a Windows PC. The Dock consists of three USB ports, including USB Type-C, and both HDMI and DisplayPort.
