The second one is codenamed “Talkman” which will flaunt a 5.2 inch QHD display. It is powered by a unique Qualcomm six-core processor paired with 3GB RAM. Talkman packs a 3,000mAh removable battery.
The two smartphones will also mark the arrival of a new Windows 10 feature that works just like Apple’s HandOff feature. HandOff is a part of the Continuity feature that lets you transfer your activities between your iPhone, iPad and Mac. Similar to this, the new Windows 10 feature will let you transfer activity and even answer calls on your Windows 10 PC or tablet.
As mentioned above, the two Lumia smartphones will be placed in the high-end category. Not much details on the price and other specs are available at the moment, but we hope to gain more clarity later.
