Specs and images of Microsoft’s Lumia 950, 950XL, and 550 leaked

Thanks to a tip from a WinBeta reader, we learn that WindowsStudio.mx has nabbed some leaked Microsoft training slides that show off the upcoming Windows 10 Mobile devices. We have to toss in the obligatory “allegedly” qualifier, of course, because until Microsoft’s October 6 event… well, you get what we’re saying.

If the leaks are to be believed, we’re getting our first glimpse at actual images of Lumia 950, 950XL, and 550 rather than the endless stream of renders. And if these are for real, then we’re looking at devices that look good, albeit not great compared to contemporary all-metal devices, and that are fitted out with some excellent specifications.

First we have the Lumia 950 and 950XL:

It’s perhaps a bit redundant at this point, as they’ve been fairly well-known for some time now, but it’s worth listing the specs again in the hopes that this leak is legit:

Lumia 950

  • 5.2″ QuadHD display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 808
  • 20MP PureView rear camera with OIS and “Natural” dual flash
  • 5MP front camera
  • 32GB storage and 3GB RAM standard
  • 3000 mAh battery
  • USB-C

Lumia 950XL

  • 5.7″ QuadHD display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 810
  • 20MP PureView rear camera with OIS and “Natural” triple flash
  • 5MP front camera
  • 32GB storage and 3GB RAM standard
  • 3300 mAh battery
  • USB-C

The 950 and 950XL both support Windows Hello, of course, for nearly instantaneous facial recognition using crazy voodoo magic (or infrared Iris scanner):

These rear images show a nicely rounded look to the devices, or at least the 950XL, and what looks like dual speakers at the top and bottom edges.

The Lumia 550 is also on the roster with specs that match previous leaks:

Lumia 550

  • 5″ HD display with Gorilla Glass 3
  • Unspecified quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon
  • 5MP rear camera with LED flash
  • 2MP front camera
  • 8GB storage with microSD support up to 128GB
  • 1GB RAM

We also have a glimpse at Windows Continuum via the “Microsoft Display Dock,” that provides the expected large-screen experience via the 950 and 950XL:

Lumia 950/950XL pricing is speculated to be around the same price as the equivalent iPhone devices with potentially bundled accessories worth a pretty penny, and Windows 10 Mobile Threshold 1 is expected to be on tap. We’ll continue to report on these leaks, but of course will be waiting along with everyone else–impatiently–for Microsoft’s October 6 event, when all will be revealed.

Thanks for the tip, Ivan!
