Microsoft Lumia 950XL Price & Specs.
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 Dual SIM automatically takes sharper images of fast-moving subjects and lets you add or remove the flash afterwards.
Triple LED Natural Flash
Different flash tones that 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 magic moments. You can even pull high resolution still photos from your videos. And with our most advanced Optical Image Stabilization 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 color. With 518 pixels per square inch, it’s the best display we’ve ever put in a phone. Colors pop and the amount of fine detail is incredible. And with Gorilla® Glass 4, the screen is scratch-resistant and extra-strong.
