Microsoft's yet to be announced Lumia smartphones codenamed Talkman and Cityman are in news once again. A fresh set of alleged images of Microsoft much rumored smartphones has showed up online, showing off each phone from different sides.
Microsoft's unannounced Lumia Talkman and Cityman have been rumored to be launched either as the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL or the Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL. Rumors so far have suggested that these smartphones will be the company's premium devices that might as well feature an iris scanner. The leaked photos don't show off the iris scanner, though one of the images reportedly shows the Lumia Cityman being connected to a Continuum docking station, which mean that it might come with the ability to mirror phone's screen onto a bigger screen.
Taking a look back at the previous rumors, the Lumia Talkman is likely to feature a 5.2-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, and be powered by Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor.
The Lumia Cityman, on the other hand, is expected to don a bigger display, at 5.7-inch, with Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) resolution, and be powered by Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor. The phone may come with additional features like an iris scanner, aluminum side buttons, and a 3300 mAh battery.
Both of these might have 3GB of RAM, 32GB of inbuilt storage with expandable storage on microSD card, and sport 20-megapixel PureView rear cameras coupled with 5-megapixel front-facing cameras. These will run Windows 10 OS out of the box.
As for their launch, Microsoft is expected to launch these smartphones along with new Surface tablets, and Band 2 wearable at its rumored massive event in October. However, the company might surprise us by launching the phones at the upcoming IFA 2015.
