Microsoft details the camera "magic" in the Lumia 950 and 950 XL (with pictures)

There's only about one month to wait before the Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL are released and as is tradition with high-end Lumia devices, the expectation is that the camera will be killer. Today, Microsoft published a pretty in-depth (and poetically worded) blog post talking about what it calls the camera "magic" built into the new Lumia flagships...

How come companies are all unwilling to provide specs regarding size of sensor?

The sensor size is 1/2.4 !?

4:3 photos appear to have the same resolution than the ones from Lumia 930. Not sure if there were any generational changes on the sensor but going from F2.4 to F1.9 is a big deal all by itself. Throw in new optics, new algorithms and you get something awesome.

Folks is there any hope of Verizon getting a Flagship MS Lumia smartphone that shots great pictures like this one ? Verizon no linger sells their Nokia Lumia 928 or ICON. their Nokia lumia 735 is not as good as the 640/640XL. Looks like Verizon wants their Windows smart phone fans to become AT & T customers.

So far there has been no hope. At Microsoft stores, they flat out tell you this phone will not work on Verizon. I am still waiting for the official release of these phones to start worrying about staying or switching. I honestly love the hardware. I would have no qualms whatsoever about buying this device. But I have a family plan on Verizon, and nobody else on my plan is going to switch, so I'll be paying noticeably more ($40ish per month) to continue the family plan on Verizon AND get an individual line on AT&T.

Lets be real for a moment. If streaming services would update their apps for Windows Phones I would not have a problem buying one.
