Report: Microsoft Lumia 950 launches on AT&T November 20th
Those waiting for the U.S. launch of the Microsoft Lumia 950 via AT&T, can now circle November 20th on their calendar. This is not an official launch date yet, but has been rumored to be the release date by multiple sources. The phone will be available unlocked from the Microsoft Store, and as a carrier exclusive at AT&T. With a signed two-year pact, the phone could be offered for as low as $99, with an off-contract price of $549. The higher-spec'd Microsoft Lumia 950 XL will be available in the U.S., only from the Microsoft Store.

There is speculation that the phones were delayed so that the Windows Hello iris scanner could be enabled. With Hello up and running, users can open their handset with just a glance. While Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL buyers in the U.K. and Germany were receiving a free Display Dock (made for Continuum) with a pre-order of either model, so far there is no word about any promotions coming from Microsoft in the U.S. That doesn't necessarily mean that there won't be a deal offered in the U.S. for pre-orders of the Lumia 950 via AT&T. Pre-orders for the device could start as soon as this Friday.

The Microsoft Lumia 950 features a 5.2-inch AMOLED screen, with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 565ppi. The Snapdragon 808 SoC is under the hood, with a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage. A200GB capacity microSD slot is available to those who require additional storage.

On the back of the phone is a 20MP camera with an aperture of f/1.9, and OIS. On front, you will find a 5MP camera. A 3000mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Windows 10 Mobile is pre-installed.

Many of you have been anxiously awaiting the launch of the Microsoft Lumia 950 for some time now. If today's rumor is legit, you are less than two weeks away from holding the phone in your hand.
