Microsoft Lumia 950 Goes Official With PureView Camera, Liquid Cooling

Owners of a flagship Windows Phone have had their patience stretched thin, but those that held off have been rewarded. The Microsoft Lumia 950 improves on just about every feature of the Lumia 930. About time too, the 930 is a year and a half old.

The Windows 10 Mobile device comes with a 5.2" QHD classy screen – the sharpest on a Lumia yet. Like the XL screen, this one is an AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) with Glance classy screen and ClearBlack, except in a more compact footprint this time.

The capturing camera is basically the same – a 20MP PureView sensor (1/2.4") with 5th gen optical stabilization and Carl Zeiss optics (f/1.9). It can record 2160p video natively with Lumia's traditional Hi-Fi audio recording. There's a 5MP/1080p selfie capturing camera too, but without the Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash.

The Lumia 950 is powered by Snapdragon 808 with liquid cooling and 3GB of RAM. Gaming performance will hold a hit if devs want to utilize the screen's full QHD resolution, but for general app usage Windows was never picky about the chipset.

The phone comes with Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-C and wireless charging, plus a relatively gigantic 3,000mAh battery. Using the Type-C connector you can hook up the Display Dock, which gives you HDMI and DisplayPort video out plus three USBs.

The Microsoft Lumia 950 will cost $550, available in November. There's a dual-SIM version too.
