It has been a really long time since Microsoft launched proper flagship smartphones powered by Windows and the wait is expected to end this September with the launch of Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL. They’re believed to be two high-end devices that Microsoft has up its sleeve right now and multiple reports have hinted that they’re going to have decent specifications and are reportedly going to feature virtual buttons as well.
Lumia 940 is believed to feature a 5.2 inch 1,440×2,560 OLED display with a Snapdragon 808 processor under the hood hooked up to 3GB RAM. There’s likely to be 32GB of onboard storage with microSD card slot, a 20 megapixel PureView rear camera and a 5 megapixel wide-angle front camera, Iris scanner, 3,000mAh battery and Windows 10 Mobile.
The biggest difference on the Lumia 940 XL is going to be its 5.7 inch display of the same resolution and the Snapdragon 810 processor, other specs remain the same with the exception of the 3,300mAh battery. Both handsets are expected to have removable battery, Qi wireless charging and a USB Type-C port.
A new report suggests that both handsets also have virtual buttons as opposed to capacitive buttons found on previous Lumia handsets. Microsoft has not yet said when these handsets will be announced but it has an event scheduled for September where it’s going to launch new devices. Perhaps the handsets might be officially announced then.
