Quad-HD Windows 10 phone, possibly the Lumia 940 XL, confirmed through ad network
Smartphones running on Microsoft's Windows software have been noticeably adrift of their Android-based competitors when it comes to tech. specs. Octa-core chips and several gigs of RAM -- commonplace among devices running KitKat and Lollipop -- aren't so abundant in the Windows Phone market, which is largely attributable to the fact that the software doesn't support such grandiose hardware. But with Windows 10 Mobile, things will be changing, and as well as higher-powered innards, better-than-FHD displays will exceed the 1080p output of most current Windows Phone high-enders. After numerous rumors of Windows 10's first quad-HD smartphone, we now have evidence to suggest that such a device is in development, and it could well be the enigmatic Lumia 940 XL

We've seen a number of concept renders of the would-be flagship Lumia 940 XL, and have also heard that it may pack an iris scanner. But while rumors and concepts are great and all, solid evidence is a lot easier to get excited about, and AdDuplex has confirmed that a device with a quad-HD, 1440 x 2560 resolution is in the works.
 
Quad-HD Windows 10 phone, possibly the Lumia 940 XL, confirmed through ad network
The new 'Microsoft RM-1100' was picked up on AdDuplex's ad network a few days back, but while we do know of the apparent resolution, there are no dimensions at this point. It has been suggested, however, that the Lumia 940 XL will include a 5.7-inch display, which is in line with most other phablets on the market. There will also, as per the rumor mill, be an octa-core processor. 

AdDuplex's findings also point to a device named 'Microsoft RM-1104', which has a 5.2-inch 1080p display. This is almost certainly the standard Lumia 940, and underlines the notion that the larger handset be the king amongst men in the Windows space. 

Aside from the heavy processor and super-sharp display, the Lumia 940 XL may also bundle a stylus of some description. There could also be a 25-megapixel rear-facing PureView shooter with 4K video, and whatever happens with the rest of the device, you can bank on the camera being a top-notch affair. 

Thoughts?

If they price right
They will have good sale
They have good phones

But there pricing is really bad, too high

They ask 500$ for a 400$ phone

They just need a proper pricing for there products

agreed, they price their phones too high which is enough to kill my any interest in their devices. I am full on android but do take interest in pureview camera but lack of apps and games along with high price make my decision tougher.

$500? My goodness. Windows phones are not supposed to cost more than $300. If Microsoft wants to make a comeback effort, they should think of the pricing first. Ridiculous prices will not and will never help them.

If it has full, up to date specs, it should be priced like all high end flagships. Doesn't really matter what OS it runs. If you don't want to pay that, don't get a flagship or any high end phone for that matter.

"Windows phones are not supposed to cost more than $300"

says who? people complain about the lack of premium/flagship devices. then when are are presented, they expect to pay mid to low-range dollar? hm, doesn't quite work that way.

Hope it will not come with s810, and should have xenon flash, not an dual Led Flash.

Only the Lumia 1020 successor might have a Xenon flash...

I was reading the camera sensors article and found that the 928 used both xenon and a LED, that was awesome.

If they were smart they would brand it as a Surface Phone.

Exactly. Lumia has become synonymous with cheap, low end garbage while surface has a high end, premium reputation. And people like surface. Many people have never even heard of Lumia. Just plastering that name on it will help it sell.

maybe in US. but in europe, (im sure about Poland and Germany) Lumia is considered as a good, soild phones. and all Lumias r kind of a brand, coz nobody is saing "i have a nokia/microsoft" everybody is saing "i have a Lumia" - changing that, will kill that brand. Surface in Europe is nonexisting thing.

Nokia Lumia 930 and Lumia 1520 are great phones - will compete with any other os phones. they have GREAT cameras, Cortana beats Google Now, etc. the Lumia phones MS is creating I haven't purchased since they are low-end specs... If that's what you are talking about. Like I said the Lumia 930 and 1520 are as good as any phone out there, except maybe the Nexus 6 or Note 4, which are pretty darn fast. But the Note gets bogged down with Samsung's overlay. ha

How come every windows article starts by bashing the platform? It's annoying and just starts fan boy arguments

Anyway, I am excited for the smaller one, talkman. If it has continuum and a few other things, I might upgrade my M8.

Not bashing, just stating facts. Incidentally, I probably use WP (Lumia 1020) the most of all platforms.

The 940 can't come soon enough, a flagship Windows Mobile with ridiculous specs.. It's time my Lumia 1020, it's time for you to embrace your next of kin.

I don't think windows phone should take the path of increasing screen resolution unnecessarily, a ppi that our eyes can't perceive.

Looking forward to it! They better look and feel more like the 1520 than the 930 and 830.

Wow folks it's about time Microsoft has not had a Flagship smart phone for over a year folks that hurt Microsoft lumia smart phones to some degree because new flagship Android and Apple iphones have really been getting all the good press these days with no new Microsoft
high tech smart phones to equal them. The only good thing is you can buy a good Windows 10 ready smart phone like the Lumia 640XL for under 300 US Dollars. Elop did a good job at getting some nice affordable Windows 10 ready low priced smart phones on the market place. the Windows mobile smart phones running continuum should be awesome.

I'm in...
Just bring it Microsoft!!!!!!!!! What are you waiting for Christmas?
Hurry my 930 is getting old...
ahd the 1520 I gave up on since it is so big and can't handle it in my car...
too big to do most things with one handed... If you make a bigger phone make it ergonomic, kinda like your ergonomic keyboards... you remember those right? well, the Samsung Note 3 felt great in my hand and had a 5.7" screen... Just hurry please cause I'm looking at all the new Android phones and they look and feel real nice. Write off your loss in Nokia already and move on with life. Cortana is GREAT! and it Beats Google Now by miles, by miles I said. Try and create appointments or anything with google now - ha it cuts off half your sentence...
anyway I'll stop now, since Android does have better phones right now not a better os. Just sayin'
