Ready for Microsoft’s first Windows 10 phones? The company has promised that it will launch the new mobile operating system, currently in beta testing, this fall, and now we might have an official date exactly when the flagships will launch.
According to Evan Blass aka Evleaks, who published a recent editorial on WMPowerUser, Microsoft is planning to launch the Lumia 950 and the larger Lumia 950 XL on October 10. Blass highlights the date, 10/10. Sounds like a good day to launch Windows 10 for phones to us, if it isn’t just a tad silly. Blass confirms yet again that the phones are made out of polycarbonate plastic, but warns consumers to withhold judgement until they’re launched.
The devices are expected to pack high-end specs. The Lumia 950 has been previously rumored to sport a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, USB Type-C, a Snapdragon 808 processor and a 20MP PureView camera. The Lumia 950 XL will reportedly offer a larger 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 810 processor and a similar 20MP camera.
Microsoft has not yet announced a press event or plans to launch the phones on October 10, and dates can always change at the last moment, but Blass has a solid track record for this kind of stuff.
