When its comes to smartphone operating systems, there’s Android, iOS, and everyone else. BlackBerry had hoped to regain prominence in the smartphone market with its Blackberry 10 operating system, but those plans have faltered. The company has instead chosen to embrace Android for its upcoming Priv flagship slider smartphone.

Microsoft, also once a pretty big player in the smartphone game, is also looking to makeup for lost ground with its new Windows 10 Mobile operating system. Leading the charge for the Redmond, Washington-based tech giant will be the Lumia 950 and 950 XL flagship smartphones. We’ve seen plenty of leaks over the past few months including renders, actual pictures of prototype devices and presumed specs. But today, leaked slides have confirmed the specs that we’ve known for quite some time.
