Microsoft has even slashed prices of the Lumia 950 and 950 XL in UK. They are not as cheap as Amazon France but in UK the Lumia 950 is priced at GBP 450 (630 Euros approximately) and Lumia 950 XL is priced at GBP 530 (742 Euros approximately).

This lower pricing is only available on Amazon France as of now but can be considered for the rest of Europe as well since Amazon France ships to all those regions. The devices are just on pre-order right now. The company has set a launch date of December 3 in UK while there is no information about the launch date in France or for that matter rest of Europe yet.
