Retail shops in UK have started taking pre orders for the unlocked Microsoft Lumia 550, 950 and Lumia 950XL and today, carrier providers including O2, Vodafone and EE have announced on their respective twitter accounts that they too will be offering these windows 10 mobile device soon.
It shall be noted that budget friendly windows, the Lumia 550 will be sold only by Vodafone UK. O2’s website mentions that Lumia 950 will be made available only in black color.
Lumia 950 specs include 5.2 inch quad HD screen, 32GB flash storage, micro SD card support, 3GB RAM, Microsoft HD 500 dock support, 20 MP rear camera with Pureview ZEISS optics, 5MP front facing camera and removable battery.
On the other hand, Lumia 550 is a nice update over the immensely popular Lumia 535. It comes with 4.7 inch display, HD resolution, LTE, Snapdragon 210 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB flash storage, micro SD card slot, 5 megapixel rear camera, 2MP front facing camera and 2100 mAh removable battery. However when pitted against Lumia 540, we simply cannot recommend 550 over 540 as 540 is superior in almost every way.
