Lumia 950 and XL leak again, boasting the Win 10 logo and PureView branding
A few more pictures of the ready-to-be-announced Lumia 950 and 950 XL have popped up, just hours before the actual unveiling event, showcasing the two upcoming Microsoft handsets once again. 

We get to see the PureView camera branding with ZEISS lens on the back one more time, indicating that Microsoft has gone all-out with the shooters on the new Lumias, and the rear cover of the Lumia 950 XL has been taken off, displaying the removable 3340 mAh battery, dual SIM and microSD slots for all to see.

Not only that, but on one of the pictures the phone flaunts the eerie Windows 10 desktop wallpaper that Microsoft built in a San Francisco studio with two installations, creating the logo by camera mapping, lasers, and projectors. This only reinforces the notion that Microsoft has now built something truly universal across screen sizes, but let's not get ahead of ourselves, as the tell-all event is just around the corner, and we'll be there liveblogging the festivities, and perusing those same handsets you see in the slideshow below.

I just hope that Microsoft doesn't show off these new phones today and then tell us that they'll be available next year when the new OS is ready. By then the hardware, which is tasteful but hardly cutting edge will be far beyond outdated.

If the rumors are true and Microsoft has indeed made a deal with Google to get YouTube, Gmail, Play, etc., then the new phones have a chance at success. They'll never be a threat to the iOS/Android empire, but even Microsoft knows that.

This is easily the closest thing to hardware perfection. Only water proofing missing from the long list of everything else. I'm not sure what Windows phone is like, but Windows 10 on my pc is awesome. Barring any last minute deal breaker I will be buying the 950 asap

Funny... mm wait, no. The hardware comment is a fact. The only other phone that has similar level of hardware is Z5 and I will never buy another sony mobile after the pos that is the Z3C. And I really like windows 10, best windows ever. Though thats just opinion.
