Microsoft Flagships to come with Iris Scanner & Wireless Charging

Moving forward after its acquisition of Nokia, and making the right move of severing ties with Stephen Elop, and in its current procedure which involves laying off a lot of workers under the Mobile division and beginning a long rebuilding process in which it is attempting to capture the market which is currently dominated by Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android. Reports suggest in this bid to catch up in this technology race, Microsoft is working to introduce the ideal Windows Flagship device.

The Microsoft Lumia 950 will reportedly pack a 5.2-inch display with 2560 x 1440 pixels of resolution. Under the hood,  a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor which will be one of the most powerful processors to be packed under the hood of a Windows Smartphone this will be backed by 3GB RAM. It is expected to have a 20-megapixel rear snapper, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 32GB storage expandable via a MicroSD slot and a long lasting 3,000mAh battery, which coupled with Nokia’s trademark longevity will help the consumer perception of the device.

The Lumia 950 XL will feature a 5.7 Inch screen with a larger 3300 mAh battery.

The camera is also expected to be great as in all Lumia smartphones released thus far, where again the ClearLens technology and a monster 3 LED flash will account for an awesome photographic experience.


The other features which make this purported flagship shine are the Iris Scanner which ZTE had debuted but again with the quality Industrial standards which Microsoft has to maintain this Infrared scanner may turn out to be the feature which makes the Lumia 950/950XL stand out, this can be used for unlocking the phone within seconds and has potential for the commercial space and better security and/or encryption.

Both the Nokia 950/950XL support Qi Wireless charging, which is the current market trend which has slowly been developing into a niche feature which a lot of users appreciate for its convenience and reduced charging time. One other significant feature which is expected is the support for USB Type C which Apple Inc., recently adopted for its Macbook and is the latest USB technology in the market though relatively new but is fast catching up with Vendors updating their devices to support this new innovation which can use several different protocols to be used across network devices in order which can be used for charging faster as well uses the USB 3.1 technology for faster data transfer.


All in all in this game of phones, you either capture market share or you fall into insignificance. So, this might be one of the few manoeuvres that Microsoft has left to make in order to try and make its mark in the Mobile Computing space and going by the specifications of the purported offerings its looking like they’re getting most of the aspects right, I’m sure just like you we’re all awaiting the phones and Windows 10 eagerly.
