Pair of Lumia phones appear on Zauba's web site, could be the Lumia 840 XL
The Zauba website, as we've pointed out before, keeps track of numerous imports and exports into and out of India. Recenly, a pair of unknown Lumia handsets have been spotted on the site. Both have 5.7-inch screens, and were imported into the country for testing. One of the two has support for dual SIM cards and both models are valued at the equivalent of $604 USD each.

These could be the unannounced Microsoft Lumia 840 or Microsoft Lumia 840 XL, the successor(s) to the Nokia Lumia 830. In fact, with a 5.7-inch phablet-esque screen size, the odds favor this being the Lumia 840 XL. By the way, the Lumia 840 line will also support single and dual SIM capabilities.

While the Zauba listing shows that the device is in testing, it is possible that an unveiling of the new handsets isn't that far away. One anonymous Microsoft employee hinted last month that the Lumia 840 could feature a 5-inch screen, a 13-14MP rear PureView camera, 5MP front-facing snapper and a design similar to the Lumia 830.

snapdragon 805 would be more like it. you can get a z3 for under $500 so they better use a soc better than the 801.

Remember they priced Lumia 830 at 400+$ with crappy underclocked Snapdragon 400 and 720p display.At that time, you could buy LG G2 or HTC One M7 or Galaxy S4 or Mi4 with that price.

I'm not defending MS, but I been thinking that maybe all phones like the 435,532,430 and other devices were to get rid of inventory, get rid of S400s and Nokia X parts, hope they will go with actual modern specs this time.

At less than a hundred bucks its hard to find a better phone for the same cost. And for what they offer, most of the people are looking to make a call, check facebook and send sms, not much more.

840/840XL are good, now we need a 940, 940XL, and 1040.

I guess it will be a flagship device considering the price. After tax and duties, the price will go upto 45000 - 50000 which is the price for a flagship. So it might be 940XL (Successor of L1520).

By the time Microsoft gets around to releasing any high end devices. People will be reading about it on their iPhone 12s.

Dont go with the price mentioned in that post. History has shown that whatever is priced here the final selling price is atleast 50 - 65% higher. If we see 36k here then it will be priced not less than 45 - 50k in the market.
