The sale of smartphones to Microsoft Lumia decline for several quarters in a row, last year they fell in twice. Are no exception, and the flagship solutions company — announced six months ago, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, the sale of which leave much to be desired. Likely to sell the stocks of smartphones, Microsoft has decided on an unprecedented step: to sell two of their top mobile devices for the price of one.
Currently, the Corporation from Redmond to minimize the volume of deliveries of branded phones, only focusing on the above-mentioned top models and a couple of the most popular low-end phones. In an attempt to unload the warehouses with mobile products Microsoft gives each customer buying phablet Lumia 950 XL, Lumia 950, suggested retail value of $ 550 USD.
I am glad that such a generous step for the company affected not outdated, but relevant devices: the Lumia smartphones and Lumia 950 XL 950 received screens AMOLED 5.7 and 5.2 inches with the same resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The basis are of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 and 808, which despite its “last year” status, will deal with any applications and games on Windows 10 Mobile. This promotion is valid in shops of the Microsoft Store and will run until the first of may.
A recent report, Microsoft has demonstrated catastrophic decline by 73%, sales of Lumia smartphones last quarter compared to the same indicator for the previous year, so in 2016 only managed 2.3 million devices compared to 8.6 million in 2015. Rumor has it that submitted in February Lumia 650 will be the final chord in the series.
Some experts predict a quick demise of mobile for Microsoft in view of inexpediency of contents production facilities for the production of such a small number of smartphones.
