    "Microsoft is already testing its next-generation Lumia flagships with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 chipset, according to a new report. The company is also said to be developing its first Surface Phone, but it won’t give up on its Lumia lineup for now."

    Source: Microsoft said to be testing 2016 Lumias with Snapdragon 820

    Update: some sources speculate that this could be the "Surface phone". what do you think?

    If this is legit, interesting. We'll see if this surfaces (pun intended).

    This makes perfect sense. People were griping that the 950 & 950 XL were being released with "outdated" 808 and 810 Snapdragon processors and complaining that they should have waited for the 820. This shows how long the development cycle is for a phone to be designed around a new processor.

    Very true. although it seems MS wants to put their foot down and stay ahead in mobile game in 2016. as samsung is already working on SD820 MS doesn't want to again play catch up. 2016 is going to be really exciting.

    Microsoft should also test and put latest processors in Lumia low-end and mid-range Lumias not just high end.
    Microsoft Mobile should also focus for the consumers that majority of Lumia users belong to. Would like to see Snapdragon 415 or 425 in Lumia 650, Snapdragon 650 in Lumia 750 and Snapdragon 652 in Lumia 850.
    Why latest processors only for high end Lumias only?
