As we are just more than a week from now, and the stake could not be higher. Not only Microsoft set up this whole free upgrade and universal apps thing, but they are also just a few months away from releasing the Mobile version of their OS. Accompany that are brand new Lumias to introduce the new OS, and today, we just got some new rumors about the highly anticipated Cityman and Talkman.
First, the source claims that Microsoft is skipping to Lumia 950 and 950 XL. The Talkman and Cityman changes are significant enough that Microsoft feels it needs a jump in the series number.
On the specification side, the Lumia 950 (or Talkman) sports a 5.2-inch QHD display, with the hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 underneath. We see the usual 3GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, 20MP rear-camera, and 5MP front-facer. Powers it all is a 3,000 mAh battery. For the Lumia 950XL (Cityman), there are a few changes. The first (and pretty obvious) one is the display size, which has been bumped up to 5.7-inch. Also, the device will be operating with the Snapdragon 810 instead of the 808. Finally, the battery has a little increase capacity wise, at 3,300 mAh. The source also mentions that both handsets will have USB Type-C and hardware support for Continuum.
As for design, the source believes that both will feature full metal slim body, which might derail the Qi charging technology being the main selling point for Lumia flagships. Lastly, the site claims that Microsoft will have the official announcement for the devices at the end of October and start selling in November.
