Lumia 940 no more: slim metal 950/950 XL tipped for November release with USB-C
Last week, a Chinese tech blog dedicated to Windows Phone that has often broken credible leaks before, claimed that Microsoft will skip a flagship Lumia generation, and go from the current Lumia 930 numbering straight to Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL.

"If nobody wants to make Windows phones, we will make them ourselves," said Microsoft's CEO Satya Nadella, and they are indeed betting the house on the new handsets, it seems, as another source has now confirmed the generational leap, at least in the title of the upcoming first Lumias with Windows 10 Mobile.

The source reconfirmed the specs, too, saying that the phones, codenamed Talkman and Cityman internally, will fit in slim metal bodies, have the latest USB Type-C omnidirectional connector, and will be announced in October, likely for November release, or just in time for the holiday shopping rush. Here are the purported specs for the new Lumias that will herald the arrival of Windows 10 Mobile:
