    This rumor doesn't interest me.
    How many more days to 21st again? I'm waiting.

    I simply don't buy this. The 805 is a year-old SoC, though releasing underpowered/outdated SoCs into flagships has kind of been the go-to move for Windows Phone since it launched. Gorilla Glass 4 seems unusual, just because it's not an officially released product. Finally, the 1/21 announcement would seem really weird if this isn't a spring release, because making people wait 6-10 months would be a killer to any hype. Plus, anything after spring, and the 810 is into the competing devices and probably killing it on battery life AND performance, thanks to the big.LITTLE architecture inside.

    I'm hoping that the 940 comes with an SD card. I am SO tired of my carrier adding 100 dollars for a higher storage device. Yes, they don't do that just with iPhones here. That will ultimately suck.

    I say, go for the storage options but add an SD card slot. All I need is 32GBs inside the phone and a 128GB sd card for my music. I'm still not sure whether to upgrade or not because my 1520 is still doing the job excellently but I'm glad a flagship is on its way.

    Hmm.. That was my first impression but then again this is just rumored. Specs are still subject to change. We also couldn't really prove the existence of the device. The name is probably inevitable but these specs can more or less change within the next few days. Maybe in the announcement they'd announce the phone to have the SD810 instead of the rumored 805.

    But still, I'm skeptical since Windows 10 is still far away from today. I'm betting on the announcement of Win10 for Phones Dev Preview on the 21st that'll come in April (like 8.1 preview), then probably announce a flagship in May or June that will be released sometime in July or August to coincide with the Win10 release

    But in my mind I want them to announce a flagship on the 21st then bump the release of Win10 to June but of course that will happen just in my mind. Either way, I'm excited about MS' announcement on the 21st.

    That's the beauty of flagships. they are still a good performer a long time after its out.

    I don't mind the SD805. Its new and not a lot of devices actually use it (it was really only utilized in Q4 2014 so its actually maybe 4 months old, not even a year). But qualcomm doesn't really have anything for this year atm other than the Snapdragon 808, and the 810 (and some lower end 64bit chips but we don't care about those in a flagship). With that said there has been rumors of the SD810 overheating and needs to be tweaked a bit more to get some of the thermal stuff down to more acceptable levels, which if true means it could be delayed until the second half of the year. we wont know until the LG GFlex 2 is released or delayed since it will be the first SD810 equipped device.

    The SD800 vs SD801 debate was really the fact that those are the same processors but one is pretty much an overclocked version of the other (same graphics and CPU but clocked higher on on). So you didn't miss anything having one or the other since the main differentiating factor between the two was clock speed.
    the SD805 on the otherhand has newer more powerful hardware so the differences go beyond just clock speed.

    Why do a 940 when the 930 just came out? To soon for a follow up.. If anything the next one will be a 1030 as that's due for a follow up

    While i agree with you that a follow up to 940 is kinda fast and the Lumia 1030 is overdue,i think the rumored 940 is perfect flagship to grab sales in contrast to the 1030, which is niche device

    Perhaps the 1030 will be coming out before the 940.... Or will they just jump ahead and simply call it a 1040??

    Windows Central did release some "assumed" renders of the so-called 1030 not that long ago, which if they were true, then it would probably be a lot further ahead in development than a 940.

    The rabbit hole of rumours and speculation only gets deeper. ;)

    The main reason is that you can't buy a 930 in the USA. Sell a no compromise 940 on at&t and I'd be interested. Mind you, a 1030 would also have my interest too.

    But the 930-940 change is a little less than from 920-930.
    if you want 41MP on 940, then 100MP on 1040?

    Isn't the Icon a year old? I mean considering that the 930 is basically just the international version of the Icon, it's time. Also, I didn't really see the 930 to be a 920 successor. On paper yes but it wasn't really a huge update.

    By the time this phone comes out anything that is not snap 810 would be a fail. What the 810 is going to be abel to do compared to the 805 specifically down the road will be big. This will keep wp down as people will see windows flagship outdated before it even comes out. Ever out phone by that time will be on 810 am not saying the wp needs all that to run great bit in the minds of people it will look as tho they still taking out second class phones.

    Still interested to see what the heck is going to happen with RT...if it will be fully swallowed up by the Windows 10 mobile edition. I think they should just bite the bullet and do it.

    That's what I feel I'm interested more. As a big camera guy myself (relax, I have my big boy SLR's, not just a smartphone photographer ;)), I have always wanted a 1020, but couldn't as I'm on Verizon. That's another thing they need to do away with though. They NEED to stop it with the carrier exclusives. Microsoft is big enough to wear the pants and shouldn't be pushed around by the carriers. The exclusivity money will mean nothing to them. They need to get Windows Phones in peoples' hands.

    The one thing that I hope is completely inaccurate... that the 940 will be unveiled 6 months before we can actually buy one.

    Microsoft was completely correct with the Band - keep it almost completely secret, spontaneously unveil it with news that it is also available for sale immediately. This is how you make a big splash and launch an exciting product. Teasing us with a new product that we have to wait half a year for completely kills all excitement and momentum, while showing your hand to the competition and allowing them to plan an appropriate counter-attack.

    This should apply to Windows 10 for Phones as well. Please don't show the world all the cool features of WP10 6 months before we can actually use it ourselves. This allows Android and iOS to "mine" Microsoft's ideas, apply them to their own products, and release OS updates with these features before we can actually use them ourselves.

    But. Remember all video game consoles. The companies release nothing until more than 6 months later, and they are successful in that. MS just needs a strategy like that. The only problem is that you'd have to continually trickle info into the wait time.
