This Is Microsoft’s Original Vision For The Lumia 950 & Lumia 950 XL

In October of 2015, the tech giant Microsoft launched the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, the last tops of range launched by the American tech giant Microsoft.

But what if Microsoft’s plans for these models were different from what was released? Meet the alternative Lumia with Surface Pen and Smart Cover and enhancements on the Glance screen.

Loved by some and criticized by others, Lumia and Windows 10 Mobile continue to mark their short space in the smartphone universe, waiting for Microsoft’s new plans for its future.

But as long as we do not know these plans, there is now news about the American giant’s past plans. In a video shared by Windows Central, we can see a supposed presentation of the Lumia 950 and 950 XL created in 2015 during the development of these models, where it shows a totally different concept for these two top of the range when compared to what was actually launched by the tech giant Microsoft.

While both models were surprised by the introduction of Windows Hello and Continuum, the planned new features would be even more impressive.

One of the most notable innovations is the stylus support, much same as the Surface Pen, which allowed a much more complete use of the smartphone, especially with OneNote integration.

Another novelty would be the introduction of 3D touch with active sides, which allowed, among other things, the smartphone to know when it was being grabbed, keeping the screen active or to know when to rotate.

Adding to a more detailed and complete Glance screen, a clever, clipped cover would also be launched that would allow access to some kind of information.

Finally, the video models have some aesthetic differences compared to what was actually launched, something that turns out to be standard, since the video was supposed to be during the development of these models and Windows 10 Mobile.

According to internal sources, all these functionalities would be functional in a prototype of the Lumia 950, but Microsoft decided not to advance with the final development of these options, focusing only on the news released.

Although this news has not seen the light of day, there is still little hope that they will be included in the alleged Surface Phone that Microsoft will soon launch.
