    More rumors from pocket-lint

    "Microsoft's executive vice president Stephen Elop announced a new Lumia would be arriving this year and since then, renders have been doing the rounds. The latest renders are of the rumoured Lumia 940, also known as Talkman, and the Lumia 940 XL, also known as Cityman.

    The handsets have not been officially announced yet, but rumours suggest the Lumia 940 will come with a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, while the Microsoft Lumia 940 XL is expected to feature a larger 5.7-inch screen with higher 2560 x 1440 resolution.

    There should be a 32GB model of the Lumia 940 with 64-bit hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor or 64GB and 128GB versions with 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 815 processors and both will have 3GB of RAM and Intel RealSense. The rear camera is tipped be a 25-megapixel PureView with Zeiss lens, triple-tone LED, 4K video and OIS while the front-facing camera should be 5-megapixels, while the battery is expected to be 3250mAh.

    The Lumia 940 XL is expected to have the same specs as the 940 but with 4GB of RAM and a larger 3950mAh battery, along with digital pen support. Both handsets are expected to launch as the flagship phones when Windows 10 is released.

    Those are nice specs, but I've heard the body of the unit isn't metallic, if anything, it just the trim that's metallic, although I hope it's as you've listed. Don't say anything, but I'm supposed to get a sneak peak at the prototype : )

    Pen support is exactly what I want, but I hope it has the pen inside the device like the Note series. Or maybe a nice thin incipio type case with a pen built into that? I just don't think I'd carry a loose pen in my pocket...

    Ding ding ding.

    All the hardware in the world, inside a Lumia, won't do much good, if Microsoft can't deliver a functional music player, or you're unable to post a photo for your social network to Instagram or stream an event to Periscope, or able to participate in a multi person chat, or video conference on the phone without Skype crashing.
    I do agree very much with the music player part. Till date, we still can't listen to music by folders! How I wish I can do that just like on Android. Creating playlists on the phone is such a chore man!

    Waiting forthe 940. 5inch screen is perfect for me. No smaller no larger which is why I have a 930 and 830.

    No a Microsoft Smart Watch does not yet exist. The Band is a Fitness Wearable with clock function. For all it can do, it can not do the most important feature of a Smart Watch......A Watch Face.

    This is what a Smart Watch looks like........The Halo Smart Watch

    I'll buy anything if it comes with Windows Continuum :-)
    I also think Microsoft should really cooperate with Mediatek to reach even lower price points with their entry level phones.

    The phones over in UK are quite cheap. The 4 and 5 series are almost disposable pricing. I say, let other companies hit the real low price stuff. Leave anything under 50 to the other makers. They need to leave some room, as MS phones are likely to dominate the mid and higher tiers. Gotta keep other companies on side.

    I remember the Spot Watch and the Timex Data Link ( Powered by Microsoft), would accept information from a PC as the screen flashed, through an eye on the Watch.

    The rumor at the top says the smaller one does. While there are pros and cons AMOLED makes for an inferior display panel. Super AMOLED would allow for a thinner phone but these things are getting so thin people keep bending their phones as it is. So I hope the XL doesn't have AMOLED. With the XL being higher end it shouldn't.

    I also hope they don't repeat the 1520's vulnerability from its thinnness, where it bends easily causing ghost taps

    Also AMOLED has several flaws while LCD only has two
    -less impressive blacks
    -less vibrant colors (sometimes washed out)

    But both of these can be fixed with just some tweaks, meanwhile AMOLED has the real flaws, like the possibility of screen burn, ghosting, more power hungry, not as good in daylight, less accurate colors, and is it just me or do AMOLED displays strain my eyes a little?

    AMOLED displays have the serious issues, while LCD display issues are mere cosmetic problems..

    I'm all for an IPS LCD screen, or maybe even an amazing new screen tech altogether

    I really liked WP8 and AMOLED. Was easier on my eyes, and the stark contrast between the black backgrounds and tiles had a very impressive illusion.

    Like you I definitely would opt for LCD on W10Mo. Microsoft has replaced many of the empty black backgrounds with gray ones, dramatically increasing power consumption and introducing more "grainy" areas on the screen.

    IPS is tack sharp at high PPI and is better at color accuracy, which to me is very important when apps are filled with more graphical elements (which seems to be the trend).

    Not to mention the fact that a good AMOLED is harder to source... Just look at nexus 6 "pink screen"

    Yeah, would rather prefer a thicker build with a non optical bonded display. Lumia 1520 can get screen damage quite easily compared to a 920/930.

    Its not better than the old way, its slower and less efficient. Think about the environment, just for some convenience.

    My house is awash in wireless chargers, and I have one in my car mount. I got them all for sale for pretty cheap. What looks better a plate or a cord hanging off a wall? When it's time to charge up you don't have to play hunt for the cord, orient the plug, then plug in. Is it necessary? No. But we do a lot of things that aren't necessary, but are still convenient and better than the "old way". When Ikea releases its furniture with built in QI you can bet I'll be buying several pieces.
