Earlier, we spoke about the purported Lumia models’ names – the Lumia 940 XL (aka Lumia 950 XL) and the Lumia 940 (aka Lumia 950), along with their spec sheet but today fresh murmurs have indicated that the 19th of October is the date of the grand Microsoft revealing – that’ll probably see the Surface Pro 4 also making an appearance.
Speculated to take place in the city that never sleeps, Microsoft could pull back the curtains on its latest update to the 2-in-1 convertible, along with its latest iterations of Lumias. Other than the phones and convertible being released, we might also see the latest Microsoft Band 2, which is supposed to be launched as well.
Running a slimmer version of Windows 10, with the Mobile version, the Cityman (940 XL) and Talkman (940) will join other Lumias that are to run the mobile OS. The smaller of the latest two Lumia phones, will sit at a 5.2-inch sized screen and feature a Hexa-core Snapdragon 808 SoC for processing.
Otherwise, the smaller sibling is as similar to its big brother, the 940 XL – a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) screen and the infamous Snapdragon 810 powering the way, mated with 3GB of RAM to ease multiple tasks. Lots of pixels, power and multitasking that comes together with 32GB internal memory, that is expandable with a MicroSD card.
Camera internals were leaked awhile back, and the larger 940 XL apparently carries a 20-megapixel PureView camera on the rear, while a 5-megapixel snapper meets the front. Rumours also go on to state that both devices will come equip with an iris scanner for biometric security and a USB Type-C port for charging/data transfers.
A much needed revive could see the Lumias attempt to make an impact in the smart phone department, at least for now we know what the device could live up to be.
