Microsoft's new Flagship Smartphones Promise the same productivity as a Windows 10 computer but in a form factor small enough to fit in a pocket.
New Delhi: Microsoft is all set to launch its recently announced Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL Windows 10 smartphones in India in the month of November. According to our source with information of the India launch plans, the company is planning to bring the Lumia 950 smartphone to India at a price of Rs 38,000, while the Lumia 950 XL will be carrying a price tag of Rs 43,000, approximately.
While the phones will be launched in November, there is still no information about the exact launch date. The India launch of the new Lumia Windows 10 phones is expected to be in sync with the global rollout.
Microsoft's new flagship smartphones promise the same productivity as a Windows 10 computer but in a form factor small enough to fit in a pocket. The lines blur with Microsoft's new Lumia 950 phones. With an optional dock, you can attack a regular monitor, keyboard and mouse and work with apps on the phone just like you would on a Windows 10 desktop.
The Lumia 950 includes a 5.2-inch display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with hexacore CPUs. The Lumia 950 XL, on the other hand, has a 5.7-inch display and a Snapdragon 810 processor with octa-core CPUs.
This clever productivity trick is thanks to Continuum, the name Microsoft is giving to its digital continuity system that means a file created on a Windows-powered computer is accessible on the Xbox and can be edited on a smartphone and then recreated on a Surface Pro.
If that were the extent of the latest Lumia's tricks, it could be enough for a business user to get excited, but the new flagship handsets are also packed with so many well-considered features that it's possible that Microsoft's handset may also tempt an Android user into a new ecosystem.
The Lumia 950 and 950 XL have 20-megapixel cameras with optical image stabilisation - so no blurs - and a triple flash to ensure that pictures shot at night look real and that no one's got red eye.
The 950 and 950 XL handsets have up to 32GB of storage, 4K video and use liquid cooling technology. Microsoft said storage on the phones could be extended to up to 2 terabytes using a memory card.
Both the top-of-the-line Lumia Phones can also be unlocked via facial recognition, and can charge to over 50 per cent of battery power in less than 30 minutes thanks to USB Type C connectors.
Even the dual antenna system is designed to automatically understand how the handset is positioned, or how it's being held in order to ensure the best possible connection at any given moment.
The new Lumia 950 phones also come with Windows Hello, an automatic biometric sign-in option introduced earlier this year. The feature allows users to scan their face, iris or fingerprints to verify their identity and give them access to Windows phones, laptops and personal computers.
