We know how long our U.S. fans have been waiting for the Microsoft Lumia 950 release via AT&T and guess what, it seems it will happen on November 20. Don’t get too excited now, it’s not official, but it has been rumored to be the official launch date by several sources. You will find the phone unlocked from the Microsoft Store and as a carrier exclusive at AT&T. If you sign a two-year contract, you could get the phone for $99, with an off-contract price of $559.
The good news doesn’t stop here. The counterpart with higher and better specs, Microsoft Lumia 950 XL will also be available in the U.S. soon enough, but only from the Microsoft store.
It is said that the launch was delayed so that they would have time to enable the Windows Hello iris scanner, that lets users open their devices at a glance. During pre-orders in the UK and Germany, Lumia 950 and 950 XL buyers got a free Display Dock (made for Continuum), but there’s no information whether Microsoft will hold any promotions during the U.S. pre-orders. But this doesn’t mean you won’t be getting any deal, you probably will so don’t worry!
Now let’s talk on the specs. The Lumia 950 wears a 5.2-inch AMOLED screen, with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 565ppi. The Snapdragon 808 SoC is running the device, with a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. It also features 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and an expansion up to 200GB through a microSD slot.
The handset features a rear camera with a 20MP capacity, with an aperture of f/1.9 and OIS. On the front, there’s a 5MP camera designed for selfies and video chat. The device comes with Windows 10 Mobile pre-installed, and a 3000mAh battery.
We hope that today’s rumor is legit and that you will hold your Lumia 950 or Lumia 950XL in your hands in no less than two weeks!
