Photos of Microsoft's 'new Lumia phones' leaked
MICROSOFT'S first Windows 10 Mobile smartphones have apparently been photographed in the wild with alleged press images leaked as well.
DrWindows published an alleged photo of the Lumia 950 XL (known by its codename Cityman) which shows the phone connected to a Continuum docking station that allows mirroring of the phone's screen onto a desktop monitor.
Well-known tech leaker @evleaks followed up shortly with alleged press images of the 5.7-inch Lumia 950 XL in cyan and the 5.2-inch Lumia 950 (known by its codename Talkman) in black.
Days later, a photo of what looks to be the Lumia 950 in white surfaced on Chinese social networking site Weibo.
Microsoft is rumoured to be holding a massive hardware launch event next month, where it will be introducing the new Surface Pro tablets and the two Lumia phones.
The specifications of the Lumia 950 and 950 XL have been leaked earlier in July and could potentially give current Android flagship smartphones a run for their money.
The Lumia 950 is said to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, iris scanner, 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, the new USB Type-C port, a 3,000mAh removable battery, a 20MP PureView rear camera and Qi wireless charging with a flip cover.
The Lumia 950 XL has similar specifications with some upgrades, such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, a 3,300mAh removable battery and integrated Qi wireless charging.
There is also speculation about a true flagship smartphone, Surface Mobile, which could potentially be the "one or two hardware surprises" at the launch event.
