With only a few days left to go before Microsoft takes the wraps of its highly anticipated pair of flagships, the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL, a new video render of the smaller Lumia 950 has surfaced online to show off the smartphone's rumored 21-megapixel PureView camera.

The video was posted by infamous leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, otherwise known by his Twitter handle @OnLeaks. It shows a CAD render of the Lumia 950, with a 360-degree full view of the smartphone's front and back panels. More importantly, though, the video confirms earlier reports that the Lumia 950, as well as the bigger 950 XL, will succeed both the Lumia 930 and the camera-centric Lumia 1020.

As the video shows, the Lumia 950 has its own dedicated shutter button placed next to the power button and the volume rocker. The camera is a pretty massive bump at the back of the device, lending credence to rumors that it will be a 21-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization and laser autofocus. Although the camera bump can also be due to a dual-lens camera with a depth sensor, it is also likely that it is due to optical zoom instead.

The latest leak comes as a Russian website, Bayon.ru (via WMPowerUser), has started receiving preorders for the Lumia 950Â and Lumia 950 XL. The website is currently accepting preorders for the black Lumia 950, which it lists with a 5.2-inch OLED display, Snapdragon 808, 3GB of RAM, 32GB built-in storage with expansion via a microSD Slot, and support for wireless charging. The price for the Lumia 950 is 56,990 rubles, or approximately $865.

The Lumia 950 XL, meanwhile, is priced at 62,990 rubles, or around $956. The website lists a 5.7-inch OLED display, a Snapdragon 810 chipset and a 3,300 mAh battery for the bigger smartphone.

Earlier, we reported that a Spanish website leaked the prices of the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL to be around $736 and $836 respectively. However, other reports claim that the devices will come with around $223 worth of accessories, which may account for the higher prices listed on the Russian website. Nonetheless, none of these details have been confirmed by Microsoft, and since the company is expected to unveil its new flagships on Oct. 6, we only have a few more days to wait.

Meanwhile, check out the video render of the Lumia 950 below.
