Microsoft has been gearing up to unveil its two new flagships this October along with the new Windows 10 Mobile. Serial tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) has posted full render screenshots of both the devices and it is very difficult not to believe them as they seem to be coming from official press images. The devices in question arthe e Lumia 950 (codenamed Talkman)and Lumia 950 XL (codenamed Cityman).


The render pictures from above show both the devices in full glory. The Lumia 950 sports a unnervingly large aluminium ring around the camera lens and this design element makes the phone stick out like a sore thumb. We can clearly observe that the camera pod is protruding from the side profile pictures and is accompanied by a triple LED flash setup.

The Lumia 950 doesn’t look any better from the front as it still houses the thick bezels and the onscreen buttons that make the phone no more different than its predecessors. The volume rocker key is followed by the power button on the left hand side of the phone and Microsoft has been thoughtful enough to incorporate the hardware camera button, as well.

The Lumia 950 is fitted with a 5.2-inch WQHD OLED display and at its heart lies a 64-bit Hexa core Snapdragon 808 processor glued to a 3GB of RAM. On the imaging front the device comes with a 20-Megapixel PureView primary sensor and a 5-Megapixel secondary sensor. The Lumia 950 comes with an IRIS scanner for Windows Hello and Type-C USB. The device will be backed up by a 3000mAh battery.

At the first glance it is but natural for us to mistake the Lumia 950 XL for a large screened variant of the Lumia 950 but it is more than just the screen that’s different. Lumia 950 XL, a.k.a Cityman, is powered by a Snapdragon 810 SoC along with a 3GB of RAM. The display shapes up in the form of a 5.7-inch WQHD OLED unit. Except for the bumped up 3,300 mAh battery the change in heart, the Lumia 950 XL shares almost all its innards with the Lumia 950.

The final product might entertain some minute variations but apart from that don’t expect the new Microsoft flagships to be drastically different from the leaked images.
