Microsoft fans planning to purchase the Lumia 950 XL are in for a surprise as the tech giant is gearing up to offer free goodies.
Interested buyers can get a free Continuum Display Dock upon purchasing the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL smartphone from the official store. The price of the Display Dock is reportedly $99, Phone Arena reported. This gadget can be used to connect the new Lumia handset to a monitor and a keyboard, in order to turn the phone into a PC.

However, potential buyers should note that the disk should be availed before Feb. 29, 2016.
When it comes to price, Microsoft Store said the Lumia 950 XL will set the buyers back by $649. The exact release date has not been specified, however, the site says "coming soon." Readers can pre-register for the Lumia handset by clicking the “Email me when available” link on the Website. Once the device becomes available, Microsoft will notify the potential buyer.
