Unlocked Microsoft Lumia 950 XL can now be pre-ordered in USA for USD 649

Microsoft announced their brand new flagship mobile devices – the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL back in October. Now in USA, you can pre-order an unlocked Microsoft Lumia 950 XL straight from the Microsoft Store. The device also went on pre-order in Hong Kong last week.


The bigger Lumia 950 XL will not be available via any carriers in USA and hence consumers need to pay US $649 to purchase an unlocked model from the Microsoft Store, that comes in both Black and White color variants. Also, lucky customers will be eligible to get a free Microsoft Display Dock via the Lumia Offers app (while stocks last). The device will start shipping from November 25.

Microsoft has also announced that the flagship mobile devices are coming to India this December and it will be followed by the launch of Surface Pro 4 in January.
