Microsoft has announced that both Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are now available for sale in Nigeria. Both of them are the first Lumia phones to come preloaded with Windows 10.

They feature the Windows Hello Beta that lets you sign in via touch or simply looking at the device. The Lumia 950 and 950 XL also come with 20MP cameras that shoot can 4K video, and built-in access to OneDrive and cloud.

In 2012, Windows Phones had 4% of the market share but that number has since slumped to 1.7%. Lumia phones are manufactured by the Services and Devices arm (handset division) of Nokia which Microsoft acquired for $7.2 billion in 2014.

Along with the deal, Nokia signed a non-compete clause not to manufacture any smartphones under their brand until December 31, 2015. Now that the clause has expired, Nokia will be making a return into the smartphone market this year with an Android smartphone. As a matter of fact, they have already relocated their R&D centre to Sichuan, China.
