Microsoft Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 950 officially available to pre-order in Europe
The Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 950 - the very first high-end Microsoft-branded smartphones - can now be pre-ordered in the UK and Italy (and we assume that, pretty soon, customers in many other European markets will also be able to pre-order them).

Both new Lumias are expected to ship "by December 3" in the UK, though folks in Italy should get them faster: by November 27. What about prices? Well, The Lumia 950 costs £449.99 in the UK (just as previously reported) and €599 in Italy. The Lumia 950 XL is obviously a bit more expensive: £529.99 in the UK, and €699 in Italy.

Running Windows 10 out of the box, the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL offer various common features, including Microsoft Continuum, 20 MP PureView rear cameras, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of expandable storage space. The 950 sports a 5.2-inch Quad HD display and is powered by a six-core Snapdragon 808 processor, while the 950 XL comes with a 5.7-inch Quad HD screen, and has an octa-core Snapdragon 810 inside.

In the US, the Lumia 950 will be offered by AT&T, as well as unlocked via Microsoft Store. As for the Lumia 950 XL, it looks like US customers will be able to buy it only unlocked, directly from Microsoft.
