Leaked Microsoft Lumia 950 XL screenshot confirms its specifications

The blog post describes a host of new features designed to make it easier for users to find and buy apps on the store, and for developers to port existing apps to the Windows 10 platform. A Spanish retailer has leaked the pricing of both Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, which are scheduled to launch at the company's Windows 10 hardware event next month.

It still remains to be seen whether Microsoft's upcoming flagships will be worth the price. However, they are in line with the rumors flying in the air about Microsoft's plans for launching a new set of smartphones and the pictures also looks as something that will accompany any product announcement.

It was rumored that these new flagships made by Microsoft will be as costly as the entry level iPhone 6s does, but then it will be bundled with some accessories.

We will keep you informed of any moves by Microsoft in addition to other latest news related to Skype as well as Skype for Business.

There's also the presence of virtual buttons at the bottom of the screen which leads us to believe that the 950XL may not come with the capacitive buttons usually found on higher-end Windows Phone devices.

Microsoft rejigged its smartphone strategy in June.

The infiltration of the tech giant into the Play Store still continues following the introduction of a new Skype Room Remote app for the Android users.

In terms of leaked specifications, the Lumia 950XL with codenamed Cityman, is said to feature a 5.7-inch QHD display. In comparison with Lumia 950 XL, this one is going to have a less powerful processor, which is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor. It also comes with 32GB internal storage along with microSD support, a 20-megapixel PureView camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3,300mAh battery. The listings, first spotted by technology site Phone Arena, show that the Lumia 950 will cost €659 (about $738) and the larger 950 XL is priced at €749 ($838).
