New, 108 comments

Microsoft is planning to launch its Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL Windows Phone devices later this year. Both handsets will be high-end, with the Lumia 950 XL being considered the next flagship for Windows Phone. While we’ve seen specifications leak and mockups, Chinese site WPXAP has revealed a prototype version of the Lumia 950 XL today. Wrapped inside a protective black casing, it’s difficult to see exactly what Microsoft’s upcoming flagship will look like, but it’s clear it will ship with USB Type-C support.

The Verge can confirm these images are accurate, and Microsoft is currently testing the handset in this casing to prevent leaks. The software giant looks set to unveil both the 5.2-inch Lumia 950 and 5.7-inch Lumia 950 XL during an event in late September or October. The larger Lumia 950 XL will include support for Microsoft’s Surface Pen technology and a new smart cover that has a circular cut out for easy access to notifications. Both handsets will ship with a 20-megapixel PureView camera, with the XL benefiting from a triple LED flash.
