Microsoft's Lumia Superman and Lumia Tesla were showcased by Stephen Elop this week

Have you heard? Microsoft is reportedly getting ready to introduce a "selfie phone" that’s currently codenamed Lumia Superman. Earlier today, we told you that the Superman would be released in August via both AT&T and Verizon. Now, we have more info about it, as well as details about another upcoming Windows Phone handset.

According to The Verge, Microsoft’s Stephen Elop showed off the Lumia Superman this week at an internal company meeting. He described the handset as a "selfie phone", apparently confirming that it would feature a 5MP front-facing camera and a 4.7-inch display.

Alongside the Superman, Elop showcased an “affordable high-end” Windows Phone handset that’s codenamed Lumia Tesla (photos allegedly showing it appeared at the beginning of this month). Reportedly, this will "likely" be the successor to the Lumia 720, allegedly resembling the Lumia 930 when it comes to design, though it should be thinner and smaller. The Tesla is expected to feature a PureView rear camera.

Just like the Lumia Superman, the Lumia Tesla will probably be officially announced in the near future. We’ll be here to let you know when it happens.

P.S.: The yellow smartphone pictured above is the Lumia 1020, the first Windows Phone handset to offer a 41MP PureView camera.

Yep, the 920 was the first one. I meant to say the Lumia 1020 is the first to have a 41MP PureView camera. Fixed, thanks!

I agree, it's getting progressed. "My imaginary L1020" shows your insecurities. ... Anyone who has negative against Ms and Wp, you strike with attack and make your own delusional stories up. Lmao

Lmfao Says the WP Nokia Ms fanboy who use to mention about he's beloved Nokia WP MS in every article, even it didn't meet the discussion rules. Rodney you was a troll and it runs in you, cause I've never seen a hardcore Nokia WP MS fanboy like you. You got banned sevrals of time by PA. Know you've calmed down, cause it sucks when you can't post, when your on a banned. What's funny is: you call everyone a troll when you are one yourself, spamming and telling and showing everyone about your L1520. I know you would love to revert back to your old Rodney Come on everyone knows your the biggest Nokia WP fanboy on here.

Yes the 920 was the first PureView phone from Nokia. The 1020 was the first to offer a 41MP PureView camera! So it means the 1020 is the first Lumia with an 41MP camera not the first PureView phone. The post below from itsdeepak4u2000 is not correct.

Nokia 808 PureView was the first PureView phone. It has 41MP 1/1.2" sensor size and built-in ND Filter. It's a monster in the camera department.

Lmfao What kind of stupid silly weird name is that.."superman" This won't have spectacular specs. Typically Snapdragon Cpu. If it's superman, it should have super Cpu, Gpu, cosmetics, camera, battery,...

Just a codename, it will be branded as Lumia!

it's not running android so it doesn't matter if it isn't bleeding age

Then why are you here if it doesn't matter? Those are mid range phones. They are supposed to have mid range specs, no any cutting edge specs.

If "Tesla" looks anything like the leaks, I'll be the first to drop my 920 for it.

all these android fanatics bawling over the latest soc... this isn't an android device... it could run a sock from 2012 and still be smoother than a 2015 android the nerve...

It was only one person, Arte, who trolls WP articles so let's not use the plural form of users when it's only a single person. I'm not going to even try to debate with you because it would go nowhere.

Oddly enough I'm pretty sure he uses a Lumia. I like his quirky comments, it keeps the comment section entertaining
