The Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL might come with Candy Crush Saga pre-installed
With less than a day to go until Microsoft kicks off its hotly-anticipated Windows 10 event, it looks like the interwebs are being flooded with bits information regarding the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, the company's upcoming Windows 10 Mobile flagship smartphones.
Unlike the usual hardware-based rumors and leaks, this time around we're here to report on a rather interesting choice that Microsoft has allegedly made with regard to the apps that come pre-installed on the two phones.
According to a new rumor, the Microsoft Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL will both come with Candy Crush Saga pre-installed. The source couldn't say if the game will be pre-installed on all of the various market-specific variants of the two phones, but the international versions of the handsets are said to come with the game out of the box. Fortunately for those who aren't into Candy Crush, users will allegedly be able to uninstall the game from their handset.
Back in May, Microsoft announced that King's Candy Crush Saga will be ported to Windows 10 Mobile, and even bundled the game with the preview version of the OS for a limited time. Microsoft's decision to pre-install the game, one of the most popular titles in mobile gaming history, can be interpreted a sign of the work that has been done to minimize the app gap between Windows Mobile and the two leading mobile platforms, Android and iOS.
