    Hexa core and octa core processors? Really? -_- That's overkill for phones!
    Those processors are probably so it can handle continum for phones swiftly

    Enough with the tiny batteries, match or exceed the 1520's 3400 mAh!
    940 is rumored to have 3000mah
    940XL is rumored to have 3300mah
    Both removable batteries
    For the 940 3000mah for a 5.2 inch phone is incredible amounts of battery life.
    For the 940 xl, bear in mind 1520 is .3 inch bigger and probably going to be heavier as well, 3300mah is still pretty huge.

    I see. I misunderstood the 3000 mAh part to be for the XL.

    I just hope that the chipsets and the optimization of the firmware will make the phone have battery life even better than what these specs make it out to be.

    Not sure why no one is mentioning the small amount of storage (32gb) for a flagship. Hello? This isn't 2012 anymore. Others have 64gb and more.

    Also just realized something...
    if the rumors are true and the phone really has a removable battery, wouldn't that make the 940 one of the very few flagships that has the ability to exchange the back covers? I think that'd be pretty darn awesome.
    And also, i assume that the 940 will be a poly carb back and metal band combo design like the current 930 instead of a design similar to that of the Nokia Mclaren. Of course i know rumors are just rumors but still..

    I would rather have a 1080p HD instead of qHD. Battery life is important to me. Everything else seems ok.

    BOTH ref'd micro sdcard slots up to 128GB ... 32GB is plenty, data (music, pictures, maps, videos, documents etc.) to sdcard.
    Larger storage drives the cost up, these look like costly devices asis.
    IF you need more storage, the xtra cost (~ $100.) will get you 2 cards @ 64GB (or you can pay $100 for an xtra 32GB onboard).

    I actually wouldn't mind seeing something sub 5-in that has the specs of a Lumia 1520.

    I have a 930 now and I have zero complaints with it's performance, the camera hardware (paired with the epic Lumia Camera 5) is incredible... but it's STUPIDLY thick this day and age, lacks external storage and I can't utilize the LTE with my carrier (AT&T USA).

    Matter of opinion, some phones are too thin, which makes for a hard to handle device ...
    the lack of external storage is valid - an sdcard slot s/b standard.

    I am quite happy with the rumored specs. The only thing not mentioned is, do these have USB Type-C? I assume yes, just because of the Continuum features and exporting your screen at 4K resolutions. That would be a perfect use case for USB Type-C Alt Mode with DisplayPort or MHL. Looking forward to these devices as my 1020's all have broken USB ports and the performance makes them almost unusable.

    These specs are exactly in line with current flagships : The lg g4, Sony z4, htc job etc. Perfectly feasable specs - hex core is q808 and octa is probably the 810 - I doubt we'd be in line for the 820 just yet. 2k screens are out, the battery matches current flagships. Sure, we have pureview but even the 16mp cameras out have great specs - especially the lg g4 with its trick setup. That has SD too, and a removable back! So all these specs are feasible as you can buy them. Right now. They're nothing revolutionary so I don't think they're unexpected. They're good!

    I'd prefer an atom x3 with a dearth of ram - great for continuum - but it's the software that needs to be there to make use of the specs. The camera needs to be faster. And Commercial vpn support. Otherwise the future is bright!

    I think they will go with intel for their flagships at the first wave to promote the continuum, people will think oh it is "a computer" it has intel inside...

    Other than the fact that JoeB said specifically in a video they are working with Qualcomm to have two video outputs from a new CPU I might have agreed. It would not surprise me to see Intel phones coming being supported by WM10 but so far I'm not seeing one from Microsoft.

    I absolutely agree with all of your statement BUT...in my opinion i still think 2k is completely pointless. HTC and Apple didnt participate the ppi race, so why must MS?
    Anyway i hope the rumored 3000mah battery for the 940 is true though, that is INSANE battery life! Samsung should take notes.
    Apple took the route where specs aren't at the forefront of their customer's minds. I suppose it can be said Apple sparked the race with their Retina display. It's a bit hard to drag them into the spec wars since they've largely ignored it since then. Both HTC and Sony have indeed avoided going 2K, and there is arguable gains to be had from going over 1080p, but people look at the specs quite often, and the phone with more will tend to win.

    Then again. You could blame Samsung and to some extent LG dropping 2k displays in just to give their customers a justification to upgrade from their current devices. Screens tend to be one of the easier things to notice when you upgrade.

    Here's to hoping they put in a badass battery.

    It's not necessarily about being on par with other Company's flagship phones.. It's about living up to and succeeding the flagships that have already been released by Lumia.. For instance people with 1520's may feel disappointed that the successor to their phone has a 5.7 inch display, and ppl with 1020's may be upset tat they may never see Lumia's continue to have 41 megapixels...i myself think 20 is great though, although I dont know how I'll feel about going from my 6 inch 1520 to a 5.7 inch phone...maybe 6 inches is overdoing it and 5.7 will be the phablet sweetspot

    As a current 1520 flagship owner, I promise you, I won't be disappointed if the rumored spec is reality. At this point, its all about being able to run all of Windows 10 for phones without limitation. I suspect the 1520 will be able to accomplish this but most certainly, the new spec will. Someone mentioned in the thread how Apple does what it does without drawing specific attention to its hardware. I suspect its because its users need to be able to take advantage of all there is with IOS without limitation. That is what I'm looking forward to with this new hardware sans the rumor with Windows 10 for phones.

    I find it weird that they release a 5.2 and a 5.7 screen. It seems too close to me. There is not so much difference.. Sure in a sense but also not.. Lol.

    I'm actually excited about the reduction to 5.7" because honestly 6" on a phone is too much and the best phablet: SGN4, is 5.7"
    One thing I'm not excited about is the increase in resolution to 1440p. I'd rather take a few hours more battery life than unnoticeable increase in sharpness.
    Other than that, the phone seems fantastic! 20MP is already much higher than the competition, with most androids at 16MP and iPhones still stuck at 8MP. They just need to improve the camera software: instantaneous start up, panorama, slow mo, and white balance refinement.
    Also, stylus support for the phablet?
    As for the specs, I'm a bit suspicious because I read somewhere that for 1440p you need 4GB RAM

    Ive been using the Lumia 1520 for a year and a half and am generally very happy with it. Though I think i would prefer a slightly smaller 5.5 inch size. Also, remember that pixel count alone has very little to do with image quality.

    It'll be 2016 if/when these'll hit globally. Everyone will be even more into streaming than they are now. 32 is plenty.

    They seem okay. What really matters is the performance as always (and good batterylife doesn't hurt). iPhones still haven't moved away from dual-core processors but you'd never know that while using one. Fluidity is what counts.

    It's definitely an uncomfortable nag that the specs aren't going to be top end but if the phone delivers on the continuum promise then it opens a loooot of doors. Basically the phone just needs to fly when performing daily tasks and run full PC style versions of Word, Outlook, etc smoothly. There's no need for it to be capable of running GTA V on max settings (though one day you never know...).

    Call me crazy but Id rather have 8gb phone and 64gb memory slot than a 128gb phone with no sd slot.
    Also, everyone here's talking about the 940 and 940 xl but what about the rumored 740xl and 840.
    Here's hoping the Lumia 840 will support Continuum and a respectable processor.
