New firmware update for dual-sim Lumia 950 and 950 XL rolling out now

Zac Bowden

Microsoft is pushing out a brand new firmware update for dual-sim Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL handsets right now. There’s not much known about the firmware update just yet as the Redmond giant hasn’t posted a changelog, but it’s likely this new firmware update will improve overall system stability and performance.

Update: here’s what’s new:

  • Stability fixes.
  • Improvements for GPS reliability.
  • Improvements for call audio quality.

First spotted by a user on Reddit, the firmware update version number is 01078.00038.16025.39020. The update also appears to be only available for dual-sim variant 950’s, so if you’re using a single-sim Lumia 950 or 950 XL this update is not for you, not yet at least.


If you’re using a dual-sim handset, let us know if you’re able to grab the new firmware update in the comments area below! If you spot anything new / improved, don’t be afraid to mention it!
