Microsoft Lumia 950 & Lumia 950 XL launched in Malaysia, 1st Windows 10 smartphones

Microsoft Malaysia has officially launched the Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL, the first smartphones to run on Windows 10.

About the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL: The phone that works like your PC, according to Microsoft:

Combined with stunning HD displays, new PureView cameras with 20 megapixel sensors and triple LED natural flash that shoot 4K video, as well as the latest in processing power, the Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL represent “the very best in innovation”.

  • The Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL are the first Lumia phones to come pre-loaded with Windows 10 – delivering on our promise of one familiar and consistent experience that transitions seamlessly across Windows devices from key apps like Office built-in to access to all your stuff via OneDrive and the cloud.
  • Both the Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL feature Continuum for phones, enhanced by the optional Microsoft Display Dock accessory. This Windows 10 feature allows people to use their phone like a PC by connecting it to a monitor and transforming it for larger-screen entertainment, or adding a keyboard and mouse to work like a PC with Windows 10 apps like Microsoft Office, while simultaneously taking calls or performing other tasks .
  • As the latest premium handsets, these phones boast superior performance. Both devices feature a QuadHD AMOLED display featuring up to 564ppi, which means photos, videos and even simple reading show up well, even in sunlight.
  • And Microsoft’s PureView technology is built into both Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL cameras, boasting a 20MP sensor and triple LED natural flash. The camera captures the perfect image, even in the most challenging conditions, and those photos can be automatically synced across all Windows 10 devices with the Windows Photo app and shared easily with friends and family.
  • To make this all possible, both phones also have the latest-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon processors to get these things done faster.
