It’s official. Cityman and Talkman are a thing, as if we didn’t know. This news, however, comes from @evleaks, who released actual photos of the two devices, which might be called the Microsoft Lumia 940/940 XL or the Microsoft Lumia 950/950 XL.

Cityman is on top. Talkman is on the bottom. It’s really interesting that they designed these two phones very differently. Also, my sources have told me that the new flagships would only come in black and white, but time will tell on that.
As the rumors go, the Lumia 940/950 will use a hexa core Snapdragon 808, a 20 MP rear camera, 5 MP front camera, 3 GB of RAM, and an iris scanner. The Lumia 940 XL/950 XL will use an octa core Snapdragon 810, a 20 MP rear camera, 5 MP front camera, 3 GB of RAM, and an iris scanner. Sadly, they should both have 1440p displays.
One thing that I’ve heard from sources that appears to be true is that these appear to be completely plastic devices. There is no metal frame here. According to Paul Thurrott, we can expect to see these devices launched at an event in New York City in September.
