Microsoft Corp has launched its new line of Lumia smartphones that run on the company’s latest operating system Windows 10 in India. The all-new Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950XL are priced at Rs 43,699 and Rs 49,399 respectively.
Lumia 950 includes a 5.2-inch display and a hexacore processor, while the larger Lumia 950 XL has a 5.7-inch display with an octacore chip. For the first time, Microsoft has used a QHD display in its Lumia line of smartphones. Both Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL sports 1440x2560p resolution, which pack four times the pixels compared to a HD panel.
The highest display resolution for a Windows Phone handset till now has been Full HD (1080x1920p) only.
With Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, Microsoft has used 3GB RAM in smartphones for the first time. This, coupled with the new processors, would mean that the two smartphones will beat last year’s model by a mile and compete easily with the Android phones and iPhones of 2015.
