Pair of Lumia phones appear on Zauba's web site, could be the Lumia 840 XL

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.

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.

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).

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.
