Microsoft Lumia 950 Factory CAD render surfaces


We expect to see the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950 XLunveiled on October 6th during a media event in New York City. Also rumored to be making an appearance that day, is the Surface Pro 4 and the sequel to the Microsoft Band. A render of the Lumia 950 XL surfaced earlier today, confirming its 5.7-inch display.

Now, a new render of the Microsoft Lumia 950 has appeared. This is a CAD render, used by the company to help it manufacture the phone, and by case makers to make sure that their cases fit the new model. The render shows that the Microsoft logo is embossed on the back of the device. Also on back is the PureView Zeiss label for the rear camera.

Earlier this month, tipster Evan Blass (once known as @evleaks), said that the new Lumia models would be launched on October 10th, just a few days after the unveiling. Microsoft has plenty of competition it will face during the quarter. The Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus will be in demand, and the Android powered BlackBerry Priv could be in the marketplace as soon as November. Don't forget the two new Nexus models that are being unveiled on Tuesday, the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6p. And while it seems more like a mid-ranger than a top-shelf model, HTC is said to be preparing an expensive marketing campaign for the HTC One A9.

Will Microsoft be able to get consumers to notice its new handsets in a crowded marketplace? That is the big question lingering over the company's phone division right now.
