Microsoft launches Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 550

Microsoft has just unveiled three new Lumia smartphones at the recently held Microsoft Windows 10 devices event. The Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 550 are the first Windows 10 Lumia smartphones, taking advantage of Microsoft’s newest OS’ strengths and providing users the best Windows experience on mobile.

Nokia’s latest flagship smartphones, the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL offer superior performance with powerful Snapdragon processors and 20MP PureView cameras with triple LED natural flash and 4K video capture. Highlighting the premium devices is Windows Continuum that transforms the smartphone to a multimedia system or a PC by simply connecting it to a Microsoft Display Dock, monitor or keyboard and mouse.

The Lumia 550 on the other hand provides a more affordable Windows 10 device without compromising quality. The quad core Snapdragon-powered Lumia is Microsoft’s most affordable 4G LTE Windows 10 smartphone.

The Lumia 950 and 950 XL will start rolling out next month while the Lumia 550 will be available starting December. Pricing starts at USD 549 (around Php 25,400+) for the 32 GB Lumia 950, USD 649 (around Php 30,000+) for the Lumia 950 XL and USD 139 (around Php 6,400+) for the Lumia 550.
