Microsoft announces Lumia 950 and 950 XL smartphones
Let me introduce you to the Lumia 950 family.
[APPLAUSE] I'm gonna talk to you about the phone but before we jump in to far I wanna talk about the hardware just a little bit.
Just give you a little glimpse of what's happening with technology with this team, what this Lumia team has put together which I think is pretty powerful and for me has been Super powerful.
Let's start with the antennas and always being connected.
It's a principle of mine, I wanna share it with you.
Kind of want you to feel it.
And we're just getting started here.
But these antennas, these are generations in the making.
There are two antennas in this product.
Who puts two?
And they are vast, and they are some of the best on the planet.
It's like, literally it's like.
This whole thing of pushing more than one phone in a phone.
Because when you hold it.
When you're holding your phone up like you're doing right now.
No matter where you're holding it, we will choose for you.
To give you the best connection you could possibly have.
What a phone all about?
What is a phone?
Start with what a phone is.
Staying connected, and that's what that does.
It's a great [INAUDIBLE], We also have the octa core and hexa core processors.
I have two phones to introduce you to today.
We have the 950, which uses a hexa core processor, and the 950xl, which uses the octa core.
We use the latest Qualcomm technology, and we push that technology to every limit possible.
We push it by using tablet class liquid cooling.
Literally coming from our surface heat into our phones, because what we wanted was To push these machines as hard as we possibly could because we wanna make them as productive as possible because we want to bring Windows 10 to life in your pocket.
That's the whole goal.
And that's what the Lumia team has done.
It is just phenomenal technology, The phones come with a 5.2 engine, a 5.7 inch screen.
They're absolutely beautiful, organic LEDs.
Because your 500 EPI, you put your eyes on this screen it's super soft.
You'll never see a pixel.
This is all simple.
You know this.
You know it cuz I saw you write about it already.
So I'm just blowing through.
What I love about LED, I'm gonna just share with you.
Look I'm always moving, I'm moving fast.
And my children are at home watching.
But I will tell you, one of my big things in life is to be more present when I'm at home, be more present with my team.
When we're sitting around making a phone or surface like this is a big deal for me.
We hear something that windows ten has done and has let me up and has help me so much.
When you pull your phone out of your pocket, you can't feed it cuz it's so dim but you pull your phone out the pocket you don't have to push a button, you don't have do anything.
I get so much information in the glance screen technology.
Let me relate this to the OLED screen.
We can light up the pixels we want to light up and now I have a picture of my kids, I know when my next meeting is.
It says I'm supposed to be here.
I also know how many mails I have, how many texts I have, what time is it, what date is it.
I didn't touch anything.
By the way, I'm using zero battery life while I stand here and get all that information.
