  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor with liquid cooling
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 5.2-inch QHD AMOLED display, Gorilla Glass 3, Clear Black tech, 2,560 x 1,440 resolution
  • 32GB of storage, expandable via microSD up to 2TB

The Lumia 950XL is obviously the bigger of the two, and sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with a custom liquid-cooling solution to keep the notorious overheating problems of Qualcomm’s top of the line flagship at bay. The smaller 950 also has liquid cooling tech in it, though it sports a less problematic 808 hexa-core processor inside. Both phones have 3GB of RAM and both phones has impressive 20-megapixel PureView cameras with ZEISS optics on them, so it’ll be interesting to see how both perform in real-world conditions.

Microsoft is selling the Lumia 950 at Php 28,990, while they are pricing the Lumia 950Xl at Php 32,990.
