    Source? "Iris Scanner" for Windows Hello?

    Aye, iris scanning is one hardware that Hello supports.
    WMPoweruser has the same specs and a source for them.
    If true, it's actually a device I'd have gone for.
    But it'll be so many months too late.

    Metallic unibody frame would mean no removable battery

    And no wireless charging.

    Instead of metallic I would suggest a rubberize phone 📞 so if one drop it, it would not break but bounce.

    I hope there will also be an option for 64 or 128 GB internal storage. Micro-SD or not, 32 GB maximum is quite weak for a so called high-end smartphone in late 2015.

    With streaming being the current big thing, 32GB onboard can be plenty.

    Hell of an Idea :), but i guess complications will be with screen, It had to be able to cope out with the flexibility.

    Im pretty sure i will not stream my Pictures, Videos and Songs which cover 90% of my storage. Micro SD it is then. I just hope the Card-Storage integrates well in Windows 10 Mobile.

    I hope it's card free. The disadvantages of the interface just to add a bit of slow, unreliable storage are just too great.

    Ehhhh... I'm kinda disappointed with this. The previous flagships (1520,1020, 920) were groundbreaking in terms of hardware. This is just a high end meh phone.

    Wrong. WC posted an article, where the source claims that the design is similar to that of the 830, and the back is removable, so is the battery and SD card.

    Well, that's not unibody then, is it.

    The iris scanner is (almost) a USP.
    All in all, bit of a let down spec-wise if true. They'll be outclassed, outgunned and outdated by the time they release. Only top notch apps and services chucked in can save them. But they've nixed that idea already.

    Not with 20mp pix and 1080p video. I do a lot out in the field and ain't going to suck up my data plan uploading media.

    Nope. It needs an SD Card. Hard to believe it won't have one.

    Well, given the product name it leaves us open for a 1530 or Surface Phone (not to start that up again). But I'm not sure if a 5.7" and 6" are both needed.

    But the features and specs aren't bad, 8 cores, continuum, pen support, QHD, iris scanner. As long as it isn't AMOLED, I'd go for it.

    Buying a quality card should take care of those problems. I view the SD card as kind of a cache anyways as everything I put there goes to onedrive too.

    I don't need SDD speeds to play some music on my phone or store some photos. I enjoy the option, and frankly I've never had an SD card or any flash storage fail me. Not sure where the unreliable moniker comes from... unless you enjoy buying bargain bin crap that might give a monk a run for the money in terms of data read/write speeds.

    Anyway, the rumored specs do point at a strong device with compelling features. Sadly nothing groundbreaking for the camera so far. Hopefully they'll include some nifty stuff that will surpass the G4 or Galaxy S6.

    The battery bit, I like. Sadly, I will be going for the 808 5.2inch one. Which leaves me concerned that I am buying a device too early, and should wait for an 820 based device.


    I hope that the new devices are as frugal as my friend's S6. He is a medium to heavy user, and frequently gets 2 full days out of it.

    Me neither. But I've seen plenty of them fail in my career and have had to tell too many people that they've lost all their photos/files/accounts etc. because they relied on one set of data on an SD card. Any data storage is a risk, I just prefer to not take that risk (as do Apple and Samsung), others are happy with that. Horses for courses.

    I think this phone sounds perfect and is what I expected from a flagship and will no doubt sell my 1520 for this. 5.7" is the perfect size.

    ^really? the SGS6 is frequently dinged for having worse battery life than previous phones.

    really hope they use the same pen tech as Surface so that I can just use one pen for multiple devices. don't want to buy more pens.

    I don't care about a removable battery myself. Just make it big enough and I'm happy to keep the phone sealed up. Same with storage. 32 gig or more is plenty for me. To the cloud with everything else.
