The two upcoming flagships have been mistakenly listed on the Microsoft Store UK earlier today, about a week before the official launch event.

Microsoft will hold a launch event next week, on October 6. According to various sources, the Redmond giant will unveil the next-gen Surface Pro tablet, as well as two new Windows handsets. The Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are expected to launch next week as the most powerful Windows phones by Microsoft to date.

In what appears to be an accident, the Microsoft Store UK website published earlier today a page that confirms the essentials of the two upcoming Lumia devices. According to it, both handsets will have a 20 MP camera with ZEISS optics on the back, 32 GB of internal storage and support for microSD memory cards up to 2 TB in size, as well as a screen resolution of 2,560X1,440 pixels. Unfortunately, there was no information on pricing, only a placeholder -  £XXX.XX.

Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL will apparently sell unlocked in the UK. Previous rumors also mentioned Qualcomm Snapdragon processors and 3 GB of memory for both these two upcoming Lumia phones, as well as 5 MP front cameras and USB Type-C connectivity. Unfortunately, we will probably have to wait until next week to get those confirmed as well.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
