Microsoft Lumia 950 XL to sport 3,340 mAh removable battery, leaked photo reveals

Lately, the news has been dominated by the Microsoft Lumia 950 smartphone and the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL phablet. We’ve been coming across the devices’ leaked live photos, press renders, and specs. Now, if a new leak is to be believed, we’ve learned more about the phablet’s battery.

3,340 mAh and removable



Steve Hemmerstoffer (@stagueve), which is the man behind French-speaking NWE, a site known for leaking accurate information on yet to be announced devices, is responsible for leaking the image you see above on Twitter. If the photo shows the real deal, we should expect the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL to sport a 3,340 mAh battery instead of a 3,300 mAh battery, which was previously reported. Additionally, we’re seeing that the battery can be pulled out, which means it is the removable type. This is the first time we’ve learned that the battery will be the removable type.

Other features shown by the photo is the phablet’s SIM card slot and its microSD card slot.

We’ve learned from previous leaks that the Lumia 950 XL will sport a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Under the hood is said to be the controversial Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor, coupled with 3 GB of RAM. We’re hoping Microsoft resolves the said CPU’s overheating issues. It is said to rock a 20-megapixel PureView rear-facing camera with triple LED flash and ZEISS optics and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. It is also said to offer 32 GB of internal storage. Like previous Lumia devices, the Lumia 950 XL is expected to support Qi wireless charging. It will run Windows 10 Mobile out of the box.

The Lumia 950 XL is to be joined by the smaller Lumia 950 smartphone. It is rumoured to sport a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Under the hood is said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core processor under the hood, coupled with 3 GB of RAM. 32 GB of internal storage will be on board. It also comes with a microSD card slot for additional storage options. Its main camera will be a 20-megapixel rear-facing shooter with ZEISS optics. It is said to support Qi wireless charging. To keep the lights on, the phablet is expected to come with a 3,000 mAh battery (possibly the removable type as well). It will run Windows 10 Mobile out of the box.
