Microsoft Lumia Cityman (950 XL) and Talkman (940) show up in new images
According to recent rumors, Microsoft will host a pretty big event in October, where it's going to announce at least four new devices: a Surface 4 tablet, a Band 2 wearable, and two Lumia smartphones. These two smartphones - codenamed Talkman and Cityman - might end up being called Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL, or Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL.

Regardless of their final names, both the Lumia Talkman and Cityman have showed up today in a few leaked images, including two renders (revealed by @evleaks) showing each phone from three angles. There's also an image that reportedly shows the Cityman in real life, connected to what may be a Continuum docking station - which should allow users to display what's on the phone's screen onto a PC screen.

The Lumia Cityman (aka Lumia 950 XL, or Lumia 940 XL) is expected to sport a 5.7-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, while being powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor. Furthermore, the handset may feature an iris scanner, aluminum side buttons, and a 3300 mAh battery.

The Lumia Talkman (aka Lumia 950, or Lumia 940) reportedly has a 5.2-inch Quad HD screen, and is powered by a six-core Snapdragon 808 processor. The new handsets seem to have many common features, including 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, 5 MP front-facing cameras, and 20 MP PureView rear cameras. Obviously, the smartphones should run Windows 10 Mobile out of the box.

Microsoft might announce its new Lumias on October 19. Who's waiting for this?
