Microsoft’s Upcoming Lumia Flagships are Leaked

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.

  • Come on Microsoft you need to do better than that. These are ugly phones , plastic with gigantic bezels, low pixel screens and the camera is ugly. Does it have lmage Optical Stabilization? These phones don’t deserve to be called flagships. Why is there such a lack of ambition on Microsofts part? Anything they do with phones is half assed. Either do it right or don’t do it at all. There’s an old Irish saying , “either shit or get off the pot ” ☺

    • Of course they’ll have optical image stabilization. Also, they’re not low pixel screens. They’re 1440p.I’m pretty sure that the only issue here is that you don’t like the design.

      • Hey, Rich. I need a new daily driver and am unable to decide between Lumia 640 vs. 640xl.

        Any suggestions?

        On the one hand, 640 offers higher ppi, but 640xl has a better camera, bigger battery and more screen real estate.

        Need your advice.

        • 640 XL. It’s better in EVERY way except for the display. Also, if you don’t take a lot of selfies, the 930 and 1520 are still miles better than either of them and you can get them at a good price
