Check out these concept renders of the unannounced Microsoft Lumia 940 and Microsoft Lumia 940 XL
The Microsoft Lumia 940 and the extended size Microsoft Lumia 940 XL, both unannounced, are the subject of conceptual renders that show the two devices to be made using a unibody aluminum design. They both have a sleek look and offer high-end specs. The Lumia 940 features a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. The 32GB version will be powered by a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 SoC, while the octa-core Snapdragon 815 SoC will drive the 64GB and 128GB versions of the phone. 3GB of RAM is inside. Intel Real Sense will bring 3D capabilities to the handset.

On back is a 25MP PureView camera with a Zeiss lens, triple-tone LED flash, 4K video recording and third-generation OIS. The front-facing camera is a wide angle 5MP snapper. A 3250mAh battery keeps the lights on, with super fast charging. Windows 10 is pre-installed.

The Microsoft Lumia 940 XL features a 5.7-inch screen with resolution of 1440 x 2560. Outdoor visibility is said to be outstanding. Most of the remaining specs are the same as found on the Lumia 940 (including the use of Intel Real Sense 3D) except that this model will come with 4GB of RAM and a larger 3950mAh battery. And the Lumia 940 XL will support a digital pen.

Both models are expected to be released at the same time that Windows 10 for phones is launched. You can check out the aforementioned renders by clicking on the slideshow below.


Thanks for the tip!

Are these renders made by fans? or real Microsoft designers?

Fans, PA loves publishing renders that have nothing common with actual phones

The sole purpose of the articles about renders is to drive traffic. Which is such a damn shame. It is incredibly misleading.

How is it misleading when it says in the title they are renders?

Because someone not familiar with the website might think they are company produced.

Yep it's called click baiting. The title should read User (or Fan) generated renders

They look good anyway but i seriously hope they come with a SD 820 and i think 815 wasn't suppose to hit the market at all!

820 won't be out until the end of this year beginning next year.

SD815 won't hit the market because it doesn't exist. Qualcomm squashed that rumor a month, or so, ago.

What about the specs? Those are made up too?

You are completely wrong . We all know that Microsoft Windows 10 is named after its 10 fanboys. Just kidding :P We all know that MS has many fans especially on the PC department.

Woow super specs, my next phone I think

Sorry to burst your bubble but this isn't the real thing. It's just a fan fantasy.

But specs?

Camera are the only specs that looks realistic these phones are not even close to become available they should arrive with WP 10 in fall probably.

52. Napalm_3nema

There isn't a Snapdragon 815, so that part of the specs is bogus.

this is called competition

This looks totally fan made renders.

Fan made rendera are pointless really.

No they aren't. The idea of renders is to give you an idea in your mind in a picture to see what a phone could potentially look like. Its food for the imagination. Example, you would never live long enough to see the largest star know to man. But if someone drew a render of its proportions and showed it to you, then you can actually get an idea of it even if you never ever see it in person.

Wow. If only Motorola, LG or HTC could do this for Android powered phones, or let this phone run Lollipop!

I don't care too much about Microsoft or Windows Phone because I believe that they are done like dinner. When they were bleeding money on the Xbox, you still kind of knew they were on the right track and would eventually breakthrough. Although a lot of that had to do with the Xbox being much easier to develop for than the PS. They kept on getting the superior versions until very late in the consoles life cycle. With the Lumia division, you get the Zune vibe all over again. Hopeless as it might be, there are some preparations that they can take. First things first is to ignore these fan renders. The last thing you need is an HTC One vibe. Lol

WTF is this guy saying?

We have no ******* idea.

He's saying that MS is fighting a losing battle as an OS provider, and he's not wrong. While I understand MS' tenacity (they were in the industry long before both Google and Apple) it seems like they are doing this merely because their competition is doing it, for fear of missing out on a huge market. They have to realize that they don't NEED to, that they can cater to the smartphone market in ways besides pushing their own OS. It seems like the Nadella regime is moving this direction, but we'll see. Abandoning WP would free up a lot of capital, but it would also alienate a lot of consumers.

Yeah but Microsoft is on the right path but it really needs WP 10 and needs it to be perfect to get to sth that's why there's so much delay on its arrival.

He didn't say any of what you said. All you gotta do is read your statement and his and see they didn't say the same thing. Any company competes with their competition. It's kind of the point....of the word competition..and no one or no company "NEEDS" to do anything. They do it because it brings innovation, development, and money. Hyundai and Kia weren't #1 and still aren't #1. They keep building cars to make money. By that logic KIA should just be making car wash centers for Honda and Toyota. HTC should just make cases for Apple phones. Burger King should just make buns for the Big Mac. And I don't even like Windows phone. It's OK but it's not where it's at to keep me as a daily user.
