Microsoft is gearing up to showcase its first Windows 10 Mobile handsets, the Lumia 950 and the 950 XL, on Oct. 6. A latest leaked image of the 950 XL suggests that the smartphone will have a 3,340mAh removable battery.

The ability to remove and replace a smartphone battery is a very handy feature for many handset owners. However, several mobile phone makers are doing away with a removable back plate so that they can slightly reduce the thickness of the handset. A non-removable back plate means that owners cannot remove the battery of their phone.

Steve Hemmerstoffer, who is considered as a reliable leakster, has posted an image on his Twitter account that shows the back of the alleged Lumia 950 XL. If the picture of the upcoming Lumia 950 XL is genuine, then a removable 3,440mAh battery will power the Lumia device.

Microsoft has not officially released any details of the Lumia 950 or the Lumia 950 XL but many rumors of the upcoming handsets have been doing the rounds in the smartphone space for months.

The Lumia 950 XL is expected to sport a 5.7-inch multi-touch display with 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution. A powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and 3 GB of RAM is estimated to power the Lumia 950 XL.

The upcoming Lumia device may get a 20MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. The primary shooter is also estimated to get a triple LED flash for capturing better quality images.

The Lumia 950 XL is also rumored to come with 32 GB of on-board storage with the option to expand the memory to 2 TB using a microSD card. Just like previous Lumia phones, the Lumia 950 XL is also believed to get a plastic shell.

The Lumia 950 XL will be one of the first smartphones to come running on Windows 10 Mobile, which may attract many mobile phone customers to try the handset.

The release date of the Lumia 950 XL and carrier availability in the United States remain unknown. Microsoft will probably make an announcement at the Oct. 6 event in New York, where the company may also launch the Lumia 950, Lumia 550 and the Surface Pro 4.
