Microsoft is expected to unveil two new Lumia phones at an event next week. The Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL have been leaking nonstop for the past few days, and on Wednesday the devices even showed up on Microsoft’s own online store.

The upcoming smartphones appeared briefly on Microsoft’s website this morning along with a short list of specs. As expected, the Lumia 950 XL comes equipped with a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a 20-megapixel rear camera, 32GB of storage with microSD support and runs Windows 10 software. Meanwhile, the flagship Lumia 950 offers similar hardware with a smaller 5.2-inch Quad HD display.

We’re also expecting both devices to feature Qi wireless charging, a reversible USB-C connector port and front-facing camera with eye-scanning security. As for the design, Microsoft seems to be playing it safe with a matte plastic frame in white or black.

The one thing we still don’t know is how much these devices will cost. Based on all that high-end hardware, we have a feeling they won’t come cheap, though Microsoft may also have an entry-level Lumia 550 up its sleeve. Either way, we’ll be covering the event live from New York City to bring you hands-on analysis with the company’s new phones and anything else unveiled during the presentation.
