Alleged Microsoft Lumia 950 XL press render leaks out
posted by Florin T. / Sep 28, 2015, 11:29 AM
Both the front, and rear side of the Lumia 950 XL are visible in this alleged press render. The handset looks just like in the previously leaked images, with a noticeable rear camera (expected to be a 20 MP PureView one), a triple LED flash on its left, and the new Windows logo below it. A dedicated camera button can be seen on the phone's right side, alongside the power and volume buttons.
The front of the Lumia 950 XL is dominated by the large 5.7-inch display, which should have a 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution (Quad HD). A front-facing camera (likely a 5 MP one) is also visible.
It's said that the Lumia 950 XL is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. Other rumored features include 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, microSD card support, wireless charging support, and a 3000 mAh battery. Windows 10 Mobile will be on board from day one. Microsoft will likely release both the Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 950 at the same time. We don't know exactly when this is going to happen, but we'll let you know as soon as we find out.
- Display 5.7" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 20 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, Octa-core, 2000 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3340 mAh(19h 3G talk time)

Am I the only one that actually likes the design of this phone?

Nope, I like it, pending release of course. A lot of people reacted poorly to the previous renders, without realizing that those previous renders were used for design and manufacturing, not press. These press renders will do a much better job at showing the devices off in a good light.

I kinda like it too but still it looks much worse than L1020 or 925 which were two of most sexiest devices ever IMO. And 1520, those didn't require metal to look premium and sexy as hell

I really like it except the side buttons. Personally, I think its stupid to separate the up/down volume button with a power button in between.

It is pretty dope to see someone actually trying to do something new. I'll definitely agree with you on that. I'm not in love with it, but I do think it's distinct. That is important in a world of clones and borrowed design characteristics.

The older lumias looked way better. This looks like those midrange 6xx lumias. Also, why does the camera protrusion need to be pimple shaped. It looks fugly like the one on HTC one X and Nexus 5X. They could have made it a geometric shape like the one on iPhone 6/6s, Nexus 5, s6, HTC One M9 or any phone with a protrusion which isn't an eyesore.

I have "older" Lumia and this one look a lot better, and also, this one has removable battery and microSD card, my old Lumia don't. Practical is always better, I give this design an easy win over the older lumias.

I have owned the Lumia 920(still own) and Lumia 1020 and both of those look better than this from a design standpoint. You must have owned one of the really cheap Lumia phones if this looks better. I can't figure out why they just didn't update the sexy Lumia 925 with the new specs and MicroSD option. So easy.

I like my 1520 over these, but it's not a deal breaker i'm very disappointed that it's rumoured to black and white only the amount of times people asked what phone I had because my 1520 is yellow makes happy that I owned such a unique phone !

Is a circle not a geometric shape?

I'm not talking about the shape of the lens cover. I'm talking about the shape of protrusion. Nexus 5 and iPhone 6 have a circular lens cover too, but unlike the pimple shaped protrusion here, they have a cylindrical one.

Form rarely follows function anymore. Having that power button flanked by the volume buttons is a departure from the norm and is surely to be met with criticism by users. In the quest to keep phones thin, the designers decided to give it a camel hump. If they were going to give it such a pronounced hump, why not just put a proper 41MP PureView module with a Xenon flash and be done with it? Other than that, it's a typical rectangular slab with no distinguishing features. After users put a case on them, they'll be no different than any other phone on the market, with the exception of the BlackBerry Passport. You KNOW that phone anywhere.

Will it surely must have a bigger sensor than previous Gen and sensor size have more impact than resolution. And every phone have it's own placement of buttons it's not that important.
