Earlier, a few leaked images claimed to show us the Talkman (code name for the Lumia 940 or the Lumia 950) and the Cityman (code name for the Lumia 940 XL or the Lumia 950 XL). The two are said to be the software giant’s two new high-end smartphones that run the latest version of Windows Phone, which is Windows 10 Mobile. Now, a new alleged press render of the Lumia 940 in white has surfaced online.
Microsoft Lumia 940 (or 950) in White
This new render was leaked on Chinese-speaking Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter. The post on the micro blogging site seems to show a press render of the white colour option of the Microsoft Lumia 940.
The render reveal that the white colour option of the Microsoft Lumia 940 will come with a white rear cover and a white frame. However, it is not completely covered in white, as the image shows that the front panel will be black. The render also reveals that the white device will have silver accents on the sides and rear of the device.
To recap, we’ve learned from past reports that the Microsoft Lumia 940 (or 950) is the smaller version of the Microsoft Lumia 940 XL (or 950 XL). Rumoured specs include a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Under the hood is said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core processor with four ARM Cortex-A53, two ARM Cortex-A57 cores, and an Adreno 418 GPU, coupled with 3 GB of RAM. It is said to come with a massive 20-megapixel rear-facing PureView and 5-megapixel front-facing camera combo. 32 GB of internal storage is said to be on board. It is also said to come with a microSD card slot for additional storage options. The render shows that the smartphone will come with four microphones, which seems to offer what Nokia called “High Amplitude Audio Capture” (HAAC). The Talkman is said to measure 145.6 x 73.4 x 9.0 mm, while the bigger Cityman with its 5.7-inch Quad HD screen is said to measure 153 x 79 x 8.6 mm. The two are expected to run Windows 10 Mobile out of the box.
Microsoft is expected to lift the lid on the Microsoft Lumia 940 (or 950) and the Microsoft Lumia 940 XL (or 950 XL) in its press event scheduled on the 19th of October. According to a separate report, the two will not be the software giant’s new flagships. Microsoft’s new flagship is said to be the metal-clad “Surface Phone.”
