    Confirmed!
    You sir are a tease....or an *****. First off its Nokia Power User (almost as factual as Real Edge Mag)...second they aren't listing any new info. Click any of their source links and they return to old posts containing the same UNOFFICIAL speculation. Lastly, again, the Lumia social account didn't confirm AT&T is getting Lumia 950XL, they confirmed only that the phones are coming. Please for the love of god stop grasping at and spreading rubbish and wait for something official, or at minimum from a reputable source.

    I was at my local AT&T Store last week and sales person told me the MS Rep was there earlier in the week with a AT&T 950XL in hand putting on a presentation in preparation for next month's release... take it to the bank it's coming!!!

    Not sure if it was covered in the other pages but I hope AT&T doesn't mess this one up like they did the 1520. One change will at least be single sim.

    FWIW a single SIM version and a double SIM version of the XL have both been approved by the FCC. Clearly, any US carrier that has a choice would prefer to sell the single SIM version. So count on the AT&T one being a single SIM.

    As long as it's not half the storage memory and a few other things ripped out I'll be happy this time. But I'm more worried about some of the things that have been stripped out of windows 10 to date.

    A single sim is more proof a US carrier will be selling it.

    I've been saying since July that AT&T is only getting the Lumia 950 and I still stand by that.

    I do not consider NPU a credible source nor chats with AT&T support who's job is to basically tell you whatever you want to hear. I'll dig more on this but I mean, AT&T does not have a landing page for the XL and they do the 950. If they were going to sell both, you think they'd want to announce that at some point.

    Daniel is probably right.

    That said, I was impatient waiting for these phones when they were announced. The fact it is now "release month" and there is no firm date, I am highly considering bailing and picking up a galaxy of some sort, the LGV10, or maybe even the BlackBerry Priv.

    Microsoft has really hung it's fans out to dry on this. If there is no date by Friday, I think I'm going to give android another shot.

    Enjoy your new Galaxy "of some sort"! So... you are not picky about which Galaxy phone you get, but you are going to punish Microsoft for not making an announcement by the end of the week?

    Seriously, we do not care what you are going to buy. Just do it. If a couple of weeks makes that much difference to you, then you need to make the move tonight! Why wait another moment?

    In his defense, it really does feel like there are literally a dozen different galaxy phones. S6, edge, edge plus, Note 5, A7, A8, J5, V Plus, E7, J1, S6 Active, etc.

    I mean, f-ing lol @ Samsung.

    If you're *that* impatient, fill your time like I do: load up the latest Windows 10 build on your daily driver Lumia phone.

    You will quickly remember why the new phones aren't released yet. (Though to be fair, it's a lot better than it used to be).

    Which makes me wonder how, if the rumored are true, Win 10 Mobile will be released on 11/12.... I think the current build on my phone would take more than a week to fix 😕

    This is a good point. Builds are "finished" and then put into the internal ring for a period of time before being made available to us. The improvements between the builds have been significant with 10581 being quite good (I did not say perfect!). Internally, I would expect that they are way ahead of what we have seen to this point.

    Also, a release of Win10 Mobile on 11/12 only means that is what they are going to ship the phones with. I would expect a day 1 update whenever the phones are made available.

    Someone here said AT&T normally releases new devices on Fridays so if what you say is true then the 950XL could be available on the Friday the 13th.. hmmm friday the 13th?? sounds like a bad omen lol

    I would go with the 20th. My local store told me the MS rep said pre-black Friday.

    And releasing a phone on Black Friday just sounds like a really bad idea in general.

    Agreed, not a good day to release a new device... I like many of my friends stay as far as possible away from malls, stores ect.... Its just too crazy to try and get near them..

    Hehe... if I had to guess further, the release on the 12th would be followed by flashing a lot of phones prior to packaging them and shipping them out. A 2-3 week process at minimum... so that would put us at the end of the month or beginning Dec.

    I personally cant wait, I held one in the MS store before they were taken down and it is a really nice phone.

    Trust me....Phones have been ready and packaged for 20 days!! (wink wink). They were waiting for TH2 so that as soon as you turn on the phone, it will update. There is no need to re-open the packages to re-flash anything.....it is 2015 you know...
