With Windows 10, Microsoft’s Lumia range of flagship smartphones are also set for a makeover.

Windows Central reports that the Lumia 950 will come with a 5.2-inch OLED display and run a 64-bit hexa core Snapdragon 808 chipset clubbed with a 3GB RAM.
It is further said to include a 20 megapixel PureView rear camera combined with a 5 megapixel wide-angle front snapper. It will be powered by a 3000mAh removable battery.
The larger 5.7-inch Lumia 950 XL is said to be powered by a 64-bit octa core Snapdragon 810 chipset combined with 3GB RAM. While the camera specifications remain the same as the smaller Lumia 950, the one in 950 XL will come with triple LED flash. It will come packed with a 3300mAh battery. It will include aluminum side buttons and feature a 1mm silver ring inside the circumference of the black camera pod.
