Lumia 950 XL to have a removable 3340 mAh battery, leaked image shows
posted by Daniel P. / Oct 05, 2015, 4:49 AM
Microsoft is gearing up to showcase its first Windows 10 Mobile handsets tomorrow - the Lumia 950 and its XL version - along with the newest Surface convertible. The phones will be the poster kids for Microsoft's brand new push in mobile hardware, after it introduced the screen size-agnostic Win 10, and wrote off the Nokia merger, starting with a completely clean slate.
A few press renders and prototype photos of the new Lumias have already leaked out, along with their specs, so we pretty much know what to expect in terms of hardware. What we didn't know so far, however, that the rumored 3300 mAh battery of Lumia 950 XL might be removable. The pictures below display a prototype with 3340 mAh typical capacity, meant to be pried out, and a SIM card or a microSD slot inserted, then put back into place. That's quite the departure from the usual Lumia sealed battery concept, so tomorrow we'll be all ears if that claim turns out to be true.
- 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)

This is very good! If battery dies (out of warranty) you can replace it yourself, or just put a different battery with more capacity in it.

These days, rarely people use their smartphones till their batteries die. That would at least take 18-24 months with very aggressive usage, while people mostly change their smartphones after 6-12 months, also most of them don't use their smartphones that much aggressively.

I like everything about this phone. Except for the way it looks. All specs are amazing, everything about it is. Just the looks are so.... plain

Dont judge before you see the phone in real life. Almost all Lumia phones look plain in renders and photos but almost everyone is good looking in real life. Its also a question of durability. Drop an iPhone on its face, you have a broken display. Drop it on the side and you have a big dent on it. Same goes with Samsung's new designs. I agree with you, they look much better than these Lumias but you don't want to have a product you use all the time and always think of the way you handle it..

iPhone looks decent in my opinion. Bezels are still too large and the rounded edges on such a thin device make it very uncomfortable to hold in my opinion. They can take a few falls just fine though, so I like that it has better build quality than previous generations. They should be using better glass by now though, as theirs is not as durable as Gorilla Glass. The Galaxy Note 5 looks great. Great screen to size ratio and good, flat aluminum sides. Back made of glass is unforgivable though for me. We all pointed this out when Apple did it with the iPhone 4S. In the 1-2 years you are going to own it, you will almost certainly drop it at least once. The 950 and 950 XL are cases where form is following function. Not the prettiest, but not ugly. Largely utilitarian and functional, but it is understated and will have a very nice looking screen. Lumias have been doing this "infinity" type glass for a while, and they look beautiful with AMOLED displays.

With that crapdragon 810 inside, it needs all the battery it can.

Oh come on, I don't want to hear this bulls**t anymore. The Z5 flies with the 810 inside, it performs about the same as the GS6 edge with your beloved 7420. The Z5 is even faster when opening recent apps because it doesn't have ram issues.https://www.youtube.com/watch?

Let's wait for battery tests. Besides, I never said 810 is slow. I said it's inefficient. I watched for about 4 minutes of your video and the S6 still seems faster. /remember the S6 is about 300$ cheaper and 6 moths older phone compared to Z5.

if I remember correctly the snapdragon 810 ARMS CPU gives off a lot of heat. if that is still so I hope that Microsoft's engineers put a damn good heat sink metal in the 950 XL 0r else they will have a lot of 950XL returns. Sony smart phone owners raised hell about the heat the snapdragon 810 CPU generated in their smart phones. I hope the MS does not get the same heat from 950 XL owners put metal heat sinks in smart phone engineers

I am a BlackBerry fan but I still have to use a couple of Android apps that just do not exist for BB. Windows Phone has the same problem and needs to fix it quickly. Otherwise the end result will be like today when I decided to use my Nexus 6 instead.
