The upcoming Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL smartphones were briefly available for pre-order at the UK Microsoft Store site in late October. Those pre-orders are no longer available, but a new report says they will go live again sometime next week.

The report comes from Microsoft MVP Michael Gillett, who attended the company's Future Decoded event in London today. He says he was told by a Microsoft rep:

"Lumia 950 and XL preorders weren't meant to go live on the Microsoft Store when they did, hence they are no longer open."

The good news, according to Gillett:

"Lumia 950 and XL preorders to go live next week on the Microsoft Store."

His statement would seem to agree with our own report. Our sources have told us that AT&T will begin selling the Lumia 950 on November 20 in the US. Microsoft is also expected begin taking US pre-orders for the unlocked Lumia 950 XL that same week. Shipments of those phones may begin in late November.
