This Microsoft Lumia 940 concept makes Windows 10 Mobile look extremely desirable
posted by Florin T. / Jul 06, 2015, 2:49 PM
The Lumia 940 is obviously the successor to last year's Nokia Lumia 930. We heard that the 940 could feature a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED 1080p display, a 5 MP front-facing camera, and a promising 25 MP PureView rear camera with triple-tone LED flash. The new Microsoft handset might also offer a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 3 GB of RAM, up to 128 GB of storage space, and a 3250 mAh battery. Based on these rumors, designer Jonas Daehnert recently created a Lumia 940 concept that looks pretty cool (in three color versions: black, red, and green).
Naturally, the real Lumia 940 should run Windows 10 Mobile out of the box, which likely means it won't hit the market before September (when the new version of the OS is expected to be officially released). Until we hear more about this, check out the Lumia 940 concept below and let us know if you think the real handset will resemble it.

Nokia started all, and windows kicked them out, Windows would have been the so called "reinvented phone" that iPhone got back in 07, but guess they couldn't they are way too greedy!! Listen to your customers MICROSOFT!!!!

I also like Nokia better, but what does that really have to do with this? It's a Windows Phone and this has been the case for all Nokia phones in the last few years for better or worse. The label on the phone means nothing to me really.

whatever. the look is great. but OS UI is a total failure from the scratch to now and then. Microsoft you need to give a fixed dimention for the ICON, tile is good but you lost it between the tile and icons, look and feeling is everything. feel smooth, direct, useful, but don't froget to make it beautiful with the geometrics inside out.

I don't see Microsoft even trying hard. What we see here is what's left of the Nokia legacy and nothing more.. I know that specs don't matter much when it comes to Windows phones but still what makes android more interesting is the way the manufacturers compete each other to add features and bump up specs to entice the customers. With Microsoft we just don't see that kind of motivation. They release phone which are good and without features that may seem like gimmicks but still it doesn't hurt to try atleast once. What I would love to see is a top of the line Microsoft phone with the same hardware as the current android flagships and see how good windows fare against android. Now that would be interesting.

I suspect the camera will put a run in for any other manufacturer. As you highlighted, WP doesn't need the spec race to run smoothly like Android does. Mac's exist at all because people are willing to pay an absolute premium for experience over specs. This probably won't be any more than any other flagship phone, but the experience of WP is why this flagship is more than relevant.

I wish you were right - my son's got the new iPhone 6 (I am *not* an Apple fan !) - but his camera was 10 times better than my Lumia 820. Sure, my phone is 2 years old and his is current, but the difference was unbelieveable. I hope you're right because I'd prefer another Windows phone (I'm due an upgrade) - but may have to go to iPhone....... (noooooooooo !).

Why is it hard for these designers to re imagine a Windows camera lens in any other way that big fat round thing ?

because a protruding square is better? Or the craptacular corner placement that is s**t to hold and rotate? Would an octagon be better?

That looks quite nice. Any Android skins with see through tiles or icons where you can look through the transparent icon and see the wallpaper like that?

Years ago when Beautiful Widgets was popular, dont know if it is now....you could make the widget transperant. I think there have been many widgets where you could do that. Icons? Not sure. Just searching now, yea there are many transparent icon apps on Android.

And there am I-- Patiently waiting from Microsoft for a decent midrange smartphone, which has something newer than SD400. Seriously, that chipset is getting dated, and that is the only thing which is a deal-breaker for most of the devices. Any other phones that have better SOC's are just out of my budget. :'(
