Recently, we came across an alleged CAD render of the unannounced Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, which is said to be one of the software giant’s upcoming high-end smartphones. Now, the device’s alleged press render has been leaked as well.
Alleged Microsoft Lumia 950 XL press render
Last week, @OnLeaks, a twitter account known for leaking information on yet to be announced devices, leaked what it claimed to be a CAD drawing of the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. CAD drawings are used by manufacturers in production and by case manufacturers to make sure their cases fit the devices like a glove. Now, serial leakster Evan Blass (popularly known as @evleaks on Twitter) has leaked what he claims to be the actual press render of the device.
Blass’ leaked press render of the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL looks confirms what we’ve already seen from the CAD renders leaked by @OnLeaks. This time, however, Blass’ leak shows the device in two colour options – black and silver.
The renders also show thee angles of the device – front, back, and sides. Like what we’ve seen before, the bump for the rear camera (believed to be a 20-megapixel PureView sensor) is noticeable. It also shows the device sporting a triple LED flash on the left side, the new Microsoft logo, and the “PureView” and “ZEISS” optics branding found on the back. The renders of the right side of the device shows a dedicated camera button, power button, and volume buttons.
As for the render of the front side of the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, it is dominated by the rather massive 5.7-inch screen. The screen is said to have a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Also shown is the front-facing camera, which is likely to be a 5-megapixel camera that will be ideal for snapping selfies and video chat.
Past reports have revealed that the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL will sport the controversial Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor, coupled with 3 GB of RAM under the hood. We’re hoping Microsoft resolves the said CPU’s overheating issues. Other rumoured specs include 32 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, Qi wireless charging support, and a 3,000 mAh battery to keep the lights on. It will run Windows 10 Mobile out of the box.
So when do we get to see the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL make its official debut? The Redmond firm is expected to lift the lid on the phablet alongside the Lumia 950 smartphone on the 6th of October.
