‘Microsoft Talkman’ pictured, could be announced on October 19
If you’ve been staying up to date with recent tech happenings (especially in the phone section), you should be able to recall that Microsoft/Nokia hasn’t released a high end Lumia smartphone this year, thus recent the making of the Microsoft Lumia 940 aka ‘Talkman’ and its larger brother called the Microsoft Lumia 940 XL or ‘Cityman.’
While there’s no way to confirm the picture as that of the alleged smartphone for now, keep in mind that the 940 and 940 XL will sport similar or identical designs — differing only in screen and body sizes. 940 will have a 5.2″ display while the XL will thread along with a 5.7 incher. Both handsets sport QHD resolutions and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor and 3GB of RAM.
The flagships will further pack a 20-megapixel Pureview rear cameras with a 5-megapixel front-facing sensor. It is understood from recent reports that Microsoft might include a USB Type-C port, stylus pen and iris scanner in the bigger Lumia 940 XL.
