Microsoft has just launched the Lumia 950 in the United States and its running mate, the Lumia 950 XL, will be out on sale pretty soon, as well.

Both Microsoft handsets will come running Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.0 out of the box, according to WMPowerUser. If users want to avail of the latest Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.11, however, they’ll have to get if from the Windows Insider program. Sadly, both the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL aren’t among the smartphones supported by the program.

"Is the 950 eligible for the new builds?" a tech user wrote. "I am hoping it addresses some issues”!

"Not yet"! a Microsoft representative responded via Twitter. "We need to get some support in place for 950 x 950 XL to enable them for Insider previews”.

This is only normal since devices typically need to have some support before insider builds are made available for them. Although this indicates the latest Windows 10 Mobile build isn’t yet accessible for Microsoft's Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL models, it doesn’t necessarily mean it will take long.

In other related news, Microsoft reportedly has plans to launch the two devices in India on November 30, according to Tech2. Although the Redmond-based tech company admitted it’s got something up its sleeve as regards its Lumia handsets, no specific details were disclosed. Plus, there was also no confirmation of the date, as well.

The Lumia 950 has a 5.2 inch AMOLED screen display with a 2,560 x 1,440 pixels resolution with a pixel density of 565 ppi. The Lumia 950 XL, which sports a much larger 5.7-inch, has an IPS display that features a 2,560 x 1,440 pixels resolution with a pixel density of 518 ppi.
