Last week reports surfaced claiming that Microsoft was planning on launching two new flagship smartphones, reportedly called the Lumia 950, and the Lumia 950 XL. Now, we might have our first look at the forthcoming flagship phablet.Alleged photos of the Lumia 950 XL aka Cityman were posted on Chinese forums WPXAP, and were spotted by WindowsCentral. These photos give a close look at the forthcoming phablet. The front shows the large 5.7-inch WQHD (2560×1440 pixels) OLED display, as well as the polycarbonate body. Also in line with earlier reports, the smartphone seems to feature on-screen navigation buttons.
Photos of the phablet s back show the 20-megapixel PureView camera alongside the triple-LED flash, and also show an USB Type-C port at the bottom. There are however no photos of the Surface Pen stylus that is rumored to be bundled with the phablet.
From what we have heard so far, the Lumia 950 XL is expected to feature a Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64-bit processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage and microSD card slot. Along with the 20-megapixel PureView camera, the phablet will also feature a 5-megapixel wide-angle selfie camera, and a 3,300mAh removable battery with Qi wireless charging.
As mentioned above, Microsoft is also working on a smaller variant known simply as Lumia 950. It is expected to feature a smaller 5.2-inch WQHD OLED display, Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core processor, and 3GB of RAM.
Both flagships are also expected to feature an iris scanner that will let users unlock the phones with a scan of their face, as well as a new flip cover.
