Windows 10 event : Watch it live !

So the big day for Microsoft is here. Today's Windows 10 event will mark the official announcement of many new devices from Microsoft with Windows 10 Mobile being one of the important announcements and yes, we are getting the Windows flagships after a long time, the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL.

What to expect : 

Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL 

Microsoft has already confirmed these devices. Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are bound to arrive with 5.2-inch and 5.7-inch display, respectively, both boasting QHD resolution. The larger model takes advantage of a Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, while the smaller one relies on a Snapdragon 808 processor with the same amount of RAM and storage. The Lumia 950 XL works with a 3,300mAh battery, while the Lumia 950 has a smaller 3,000mAh battery. Both the models will have expandable storage with a Micro SD card slot supporting upto 128GB.

They share a 5MP front shooter with Iris scanner for Windows Hello and 20 MP PureView rear camera with triple LED flash.Both these devices will feature Continuum and have USB type C connectors for quick charging and wireless charging is included.

Lumia 550  

Yet another affordable Lumia from Microsoft but it has the latest features with Windows 10 Mobile and is supposed to have 4G LTE support. The specs of this phone is pretty decent with a Quad Core Snapdragon 210 (likely) with 1 GB RAM,8 GB ROM. It sports a 5MP rear shooter while 2 MP sensor is placed in the front. Measures 5 inch and is supposed to have 720p HD resolution or qHD resolution with Gorilla Glass 3.

Surface Pro 4 

There are supposedly two versions of the SP 4 in development, 13" and a 14" one with specs upto 16GB RAM and 1TB storage. The 13-inch model is expected to be lighter and thinner than the predecessor. On top of that, a 14-inch model might also be in the making, with Microsoft expected to unveil it during the same event. The 13-inch Surface Pro 4 might ship with a fingerprint reader on the Surface Type cover rather than an iris scanner, though the 14-inch model might also have an iris scanner on board that would support Windows Hello. A new stylus is also in order and Microsoft is expected to produce new accessories for the new tablet/laptop versions, though the 13-inch Surface Pro 4 should also work with existing Type Cover accessories.

Microsoft Band 2

Also Microsoft is probably going to announce the second generation of smart watch/fitness band which will feature an improved design and add new features which will be supported by Windows 10 Mobile.

Windows 10 Mobile availability and feature overlook.

Windows 10 Mobile has been under development for sometime and since PC version came out in July,Microsoft has been pouring most of it's resources in getting the mobile version working properly for the flagships. I also expect Microsoft to announce  the availability of Windows 10 Mobile for the current Lumia devices. If you don't know, W10M is supposed to add a lot of new features such as improved Action center,more start screen customization and Universal Apps.

Other than these, we can also expect to see Google apps for Windows platform and a bit more about Microsoft HoloLens.

You can watch the event Live from here. We are just couple of hours away from the event. The event will start at 10 AM EDT/ 7:30 PM IST.
