It is only available to developers, and not as a consumer product. It shares much hardware with the N9, with the notable differences that the display is TFT, not OLED, and there is a hardware keyboard.
 N9/950 differences
|Size||Larger, Aluminium case.
124 x 60 x 14 mm
|Smaller, Polycarbonate one-part case.
116.5 x 61.2 x 12.1 mm
|Input devices||Slide-out keyboard||Touchscreen only|
|Display (854*480)||4" TFT, AU Optronics, (864x480 limited by software to 854x480)||3.9" AMOLED, Samsung or LG|
|Camera||12MP (Toshiba HES7 Series)||8MP Carl Zeiss|
|Front Camera (identical)||Top right||Bottom Right|
|Compass and Accelerometer||Less Sensitive||More Sensitive|
|Battery||1200mAh, 1320mAh or 1400mAh||1450mAh|
Due to the use of different display technologies, on the N9, developers should avoid one pixel width fonts(?) and graphical objects with lines one pixel wide. Also avoid the extensive use of bright colors, especially white, when developing for OLED displays as this increases the power consumption (typical for OLED displays). See this page on common OLED pixel arrangements for more info
N950 has 4" (480 x 864, limited by software to 480x854) TFT display created by AU Optronics. More data:
|Resolution (pixel)||480 R.G.B x 864|
|Active Area (mm)||88.128 x 48.96|
|Pixel Pitch (mm)||0.120|
|Viewing Angle (U/D/L/R)(CR>10)||80 / 80 / 80 / 80|
|Number of Colors||16.7M|
|Brightness (cd / m²)||400|
|Contrast Ratio||800 : 1|
 Accelerometer: LIS3LV02DL
Sysfs attributes under /sys/devices/platform/lis3lv02d/:
- position - 3D position that the accelerometer reports. Format: "(x,y,z)"
- rate - read reports the sampling rate of the accelerometer device in HZ.
- write changes sampling rate of the accelerometer device.
Only values which are supported by HW are accepted.
- selftest - performs selftest for the chip as specified by chip manufacturer.
By default output values are scaled between -32768 .. 32767
 "freefall" device
It supports blocking operations, poll/select and fasync operation modes.
You must read 1 bytes from the device. The result is number of free-fall interrupts since the last successful read (or 255 if number of interrupts would not fit).
Readout from /sys/devices/platform/lis3lv02d/:
