Leaked images reveal Microsoft’s new flagship Lumia phones – The Verge

Microsoft is preparing to launch two new Lumia flagship devices at an event in October. While we’ve seen some images emerge along with full specifications, Evan Blass (Evleaks) has published what appears to be official press renders for both devices. Codenamed Cityman and Talkman, Microsoft is expected to name its new devices the Lumia 950 (Talkman) and Lumia 950 XL (Cityman). The leaked images show both devices, with a slight hump for the camera at the rear. Both sport a simple Windows logo at the back, and a mostly square look. Microsoft’s Cityman is the cyan colored handset, while the smaller (5.2-inch) Talkman is shown in black.

Microsoft’s Cityman is the larger of the two devices, with a 5.7-inch WQHD display and 20-megapixel PureView rear camera with triple LED flash. The Cityman handset will include support for the Surface Pen and a new smart cover that has a circular cut out for easy access to notifications. Both devices are expected to include support for USB Type-C and Qi wireless charging. An additional image also leaked earlier today on a German podcast, showing the Cityman handset with an accessory that will provide support for the new Continuum feature of Windows 10 Mobile and the ability to attach additional USB devices to the phone.
