A couple of months ago, Microsoft said that it wouldn’t be launching a new flagship Windows Phone device until the second half of the year, following the public debut of Windows 10. Microsoft hasn’t said much more about the devices since, but today a new report claims to have revealed more info about some upcoming hardware.
It’s expected that Microsoft is currently prepping two high-end Lumia smartphones. According to Unleash the Phones and The Verge, they’re known as “Cityman” and “Talkman.” Cityman is the flagship of the pair, reportedly packing a 5.7-inch 2560x1440 display, 20-megapixel rear camera, triple LED flash, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and a removable rear cover. Inside the Cityman will live a Qualcomm-made octa-core processor, 32GB of storage, microSD slot, and a 3GB of RAM.
Meanwhile, the Talkman will reportedly have a feature set that’s largely the same as the Cityman, save for two tweaks. The Talkman’s 2560x1440 display allegedly be shrunk from 5.7 inches to 5.2 inches, and the Qualcomm processor will be a hexa-core, not an octa-core.
Details on the releases of Cityman and Talkman aren’t known, but Microsoft has said that the Windows 10 for phones release will come after the summer, so we could see the update in the fall and these two phones along with it to celebrate the Windows 10 for phones launch. Overall it sounds like Cityman and Talkman will have some impressive specs. We’ll just have to see if Microsoft’s plans to help developers easily port their Android and iOS apps to Windows will produce an app ecosystem that’s attractive to consumers.
