The Microsoft Store accidentally listed the Lumia 950 and 950 XL earlier today and we saw a thumbnail image for each of them. After some digging, we noticed that playing with the image source URL resulted in more photos (more like official renders) and in bigger sizes too. If you're not a fan of leaks, stop reading now and close your browser! Read on if you want to see more images of these unannounced Lumias directly from Microsoft.
