    The Lumia 950 XL is priced at 62,990 rubles ($956) while weaker Lumia 950 is priced at 56,990 rubles ($865).

    Crap. Too costly.

    It is the expected price though.
    The Lumia 930 was about 450 / $680 when released (in the UK) and the 950 has all the bits that were missing from the 930.
    The two phones are going to be in the region of iphone prices because of the their specs.
    I'm not saying I'm happy with it though.

    Yeah. They must release a mid-range or a budget phone along with these.

    Isn't the Lumia 550 being released also?
    The 640 and 640XL are still fairly recent also.
    Do any of those meet what you are looking for?

    550 still unconfirmed but most likely will do so.

    Pre-announcement pre-orders are always more expensive. Keep that in mind

    I won't pay iPhone prices for a windows device. I'd rather take my money elsewhere. If the 950XL costs more than the Samsung Edge+ and iPhone6S you can be sure it will fail.

    There's no way it'll be more, but it's not going to be cheap either.

    700 is my cap for the 950XL so if it comes in around 900 no way I'm dropping that much cash for a mid-range looking phone with high end specs.

    I'm holding up upgrading my phone until this phone is available next week. Its price will be the final straw

    Until prices are announced we have no idea on the prices. Wait until next week before getting emotional about 'prices'.

    I'm with Lumious. I'll have to wait a little longer it seems to pick one up. If I can get get enough from the sell of some of my 8.1 and android devices, I won't have to wait as long. But no rush. My phone still rocks.

    I very seriously doubt it will be available next week. This has been said more than once, in multiple places, but what is happening October 6th is an announcement. That is not the same thing as a release. Might they? Maybe. I do not think it has enough probability to even consider, though.

    It's already on pre-order on a Russian site.

    I could put a website up for preorders and take $1000 dollars and maybe get some interest. Doesn't mean that is the release price.

    From what I've seen 950XL around $650 and the 950 around $600, but nothing officially announced yet. So really we do not know.

    Of course, the 920 was only $450 at launch, so it's all about willingness to take total sales over per-unit margins.

    I doubt that. I'd bet $650 and $750, or some other kind of $100 split (which is typical of such releases).

    $700? LOL, if they come out at that price, I'll wait a few months and get one on a fire sale. Because they will be plentiful.

    Mid-range looking? Based off a few renders and some "leaks" we don't know if are accurate or not?

    700 is my absolute most. Meaning i really would like to pay 400 or 500 for this phone but if say it is listed at 699.99 then i will have to bend as far as that to get it. I really want this phone with the specs and everything it has going on. Plus i never owned a phablet 5.7" screen sounds cool to give it a go.

    Here in the US we have black Friday coming in less than two months and then the holiday season is in full swing. So discount offers will be plentiful. But if you want to buy the phone at launch just be ready for $700+.

    Depending on the price and if any bundles are offered then we'll see if I buy one at launch. I just paid off my 1520 and it's still a great phone so I don't feel the impulse to just overpay. But if the price if high but also includes a band2 and/or surface 3, then maybe. Here in the US, at&t paired a fit it with the L830 I was tempted to upgrade then but I'm glad I didn't.
