Microsoft is prepping both a range of new Lumia smartphones and the mobile-friendly Windows 10 operating system for launch later in the year. And now details about the handsets themselves have been leaked, giving fans an early overview of what to expect.
Softpedia reports that one new Lumia device, codenamed the Cityman, will come with a 5.7 inch display that packs a QHD resolution comparable to that of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. It will also have an octa-core processor with a 64-bit architecture that is likely to come from the upper tiers of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset family.
A 20 megapixel camera will sit on the rear, while a front-facing five megapixel selfie camera will also be present.
Meanwhile, the second Lumia device in development goes by the name of the Talkman, utilising a more compact 5.2 inch display that still manages to offer a QHD resolution. It will have a slightly slower processor, sporting six cores rather than eight, while like the Cityman, it will run Windows 10.
The launch date and price points of these two devices remain a mystery, although Microsoft will have to bring them to market in the next few months to avoid the hardware becoming old hat.
