Besides the Lumia 950XL, the Lumia 950 is quite impressive as it comes with almost similar specs in a small form factor.

Under the frame, the Lumia 950 is powered by a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor. This is not the same as the Snapdragon 810 Processor on the Lumia 950XL but am sure will get the job done. As for storage, the Lumia 950 has 32GB of space that can be expanded using a microSD card.

A few extra bits and pieces on the Lumia 950 include USB type-C connectivity, support for Continuum, a dedicated camera button and Qi wireless charging.

At the back, the Lumia 950 will have a 20MP camera with a triple-LED flash and a “fifth-gen” optical stabilization system. At the front will be a 5MP camera that will be perfect for selfies.

Providing all the power is a 3000 mAh battery that is enough for a 5.2 inch display. It will be retailing at $550 (approximately Ksh 57,000).
