Lumia 950 XL listed on Microsoft Store but not available to buy

Earlier this month, the software giant made the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL official, but failed to say when the device will be available in the UK. Now, the UK Microsoft Store has listed the device, but is still unavailable to purchase. The listing, however, suggests that the device will soon be available in stores.
