    Microsoft Lumia 950 XL 32GB Smartphone - Black Product Description

    One Windows experience

    Apps, games, and music are in one place with the brand new Windows Store and Cortana sends helpful reminders to all your Windows 10 devices. Office apps are easy to use on any screen size and Outlook Mail has the same rich editing tools as Microsoft Word. From Excel to entertainment, Windows 10 keeps your digital life in sync across devices.1

    Superior performance

    With an octa-core processor and a 5.7" Quad HD display, it's the most powerful phone we've ever built. With USB-C Fast Charging, an extra-large battery, and wireless charging, it's pure power that's easy to charge. Demanding apps, serious games, and the creativity tools you love - get a Lumia 950 XL and discover exciting new ways to do great things.2

    Qualcomm® Snapdragon 810™

    3340 mAh / USB-C Fast Charging

    • The latest generation octa-core processor.
    • Get up to 50% capacity with just 30 minutes of charging.*

    Fantastic photos

    The moments you want to remember happen so fast. That's why we designed a 20 MP sensor that automatically reduces motion blur for sharper, more detailed photos. And with unique features like triple LED natural flash and Rich Capture auto mode, challenging lighting conditions won't stop you from turning magic moments into precious memories.1

    Windows Continuum

    Connect your Lumia 950 XL to a Microsoft Display Dock and use it with an external monitor, a keyboard, and a mouse. Office apps and Outlook scale up to create a big screen-optimised work environment that makes you more productive. It's a PC-like experience that's powered by your phone.3

    Works like a PC

    • The Lumia 950 XL can run a PC-like experience on a big screen. **

    Never miss the magic

    With a 20 MP sensor that virtually eliminates motion blur and a triple LED natural flash that helps create warm and balanced lighting in dark environments, you don't have to adjust your settings to take incredible pictures. The Lumia 950 XL automatically takes sharper images of fast-moving subjects and lets you add or remove the flash afterwards.

    Triple LED Natural Flash

    Rich Capture

    • Different flash tones help balance out the brightness.
    • An intelligent camera setting that automatically takes great pictures.

    4K video capture

    With more detail, better fast-action capture, and virtually seamless auto focus, 4K video is an exciting new way to record life's magic moments. You can even pull high resolution still photos from your videos. And with our most advanced Optical Image Stabilisation module yet, the effect of shaky hand movements while filming is dramatically reduced.1

    5.7" Quad HD display

    Turn on your phone and watch the screen come to life in stunningly vivid colour. With 518 pixels per square inch, it's the best display we've ever put in a phone. Colours pop and the amount of fine detail is incredible. And with Gorilla® Glass 4, the screen is scratch-resistant and extra-strong.

    Gorilla® Glass 4

    518 Pixels per square inch

    • Super-strong display glass that's more durable than ever.
    • A high pixel density that shows an amazing amount of detail.
