Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950 XL to be unveiled at a special event in October?
A report published today says that the cancellation of the Lumia 850 has been cancelled. And while stopping short of calling for a definite unveiling of the phone, the report did say that it could see daylight after all. The original report listed the Lumia 850 as featuring a 5-inch Gorilla Glass 3 screen carrying a 768 x 1280 resolution. A Snapdragon 410 SoC powers the device with a quad-core 1.4GHz CPU in tow. The chip also includes the Adreno 306 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable memory. The 10MP rear-facing PureView camera uses Zeiss optics, and there is a 5MP front-facing snapper on board. The whole shebang is powered by a 2650mAh battery. The phone supports HSPA, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
The other rumor is about the eagerly awaited pair of high-end Lumia models, the Microsoft Lumia 950 (Talkman) and Microsoft Lumia 950 XL (Cityman). While it was originally thought that these two devices would be unveiled in September at the IFA 2015 show in Berlin, the latest word is that the two high-end phones will be announced in October during a special Microsoft event. Perhaps the coverage of the OnePlus 2 launch yesterday and today's Motorola launch event helped changed Microsoft's mind.
According to Windows Central, the possible Microsoft Lumia models being planned include the Talkman (Lumia 950), Cityman (Lumia 950 XL)
Saana (Lumia 850?), Saimaa (Lumia 650?) and an Unnamed Microsoft-Intel Project.
