Lumia 950 and 950 XL turn up in Microsoft's store ahead of launch

Microsoft has just committed one of the biggest bloopers in its long history by revealing its upcoming Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL smartphones ahead of their official launch next week.

Advertently or inadvertently, Microsoft has thus confirmed the existence of the two new premium smartphones which are tipped to overturn the company's recent bleak performance in smartphone markets.

Lumia 950 XL has been described as a 5.7-inch phone with a WQHD display, a 20MP primary camera and 32GB of internal storage. The phone is also the first to feature Windows 10 mobile operating system.

The smaller Lumia 950 is a 5.2-inch phone with the same display and internal specs. It will also run Windows 10 mobile operating system.

Both phones also feature microSD cards which will let you add up to 2TB worth additional storage.

The company, however, did not mention the prices or detailed specs of both devices, but at least we know how they look like.

We were also treated to one of Microsoft's leaked presentations earlier this week which shattered whatever little doubt we had on these new phones.

The presentation described Lumia 950 XL as a 5.7 inch behemoth featuring a QHD display, an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 32GB internal storage, 3GB RAM, 20MP PureView and 5MP cameras and a 3,300 mAh removable battery.

The phone can be connected with other Windows devices through a USB Type-C slot. The phone also features Qualcomm's QuickCharge and wireless charging features.

On the other hand, Lumia 950 will contain a smaller 5.2-inch QHD display and will feature an octa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 32GB internal storage, 3GB RAM, 20MP and 5MP cameras and a lighter 3,000 mAh removable battery.
