Leaked Images Claim To Be Flagship Windows 10 Lumias

What’s next for Microsoft’s Lumia line? Thanks to serial tipsters Brad Sams and Evan Blass, we have got a good look at the new smartphones dubbed Lumia 950 (Talkman) and Lumia 950 XL (Cityman) which are rumoured to launch at an event in October.


Leaked images and renders of Microsoft’s big Windows 10 phones, codenamed Cityman and Talkman, are going viral on the net.

Since Microsoft has not confirmed that the images are legitimate, it’s impossible to know whether the devices pictured in the photos are the real thing or just concept art. Still, they seem to follow rumors that have already surfaced around Microsoft’s plans for new smartphones and appear to be official photos that would typically accompany any product announcement.

But IDC noted in its report that Microsoft is also offering the new software as a free download for people who want to install it on their existing PCs. Of course, both will run Windows 10.

According to the leak, the devices would be named Lumia 950(Talkman) and Lumia 950 XL (Cityman).

The phones are expected to come out with 5.2 and 5.7 inched screen respectively, and are expected to come out with latest technologies which have never been seen before in the mobile phones, such as iris tracking and facial recognition.

The first image was posted by German website, which shows Cityman hooked via a cable to a black box that The Verge’s Tom Warren believes to be the Wizard, the codename for a device that will enable Continuum, a feature that lets users use their smartphone as a PC when the two devices are connected to each other. Both will also feature USB Type-C and come dipped in Matte white or black polycarbonate.

For now, though, until Microsoft says something about the images, their legitimacy should be taken with the proverbial grain of salt.


Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
