Microsoft is working on two new high-end Lumia phones for Windows 10.
A flagship device, codenamed Cityman, is currently being developed, alongside a high-end handset codenamed Talkman. According to The Verge, Microsoft is taking a similar approach to Apple with two devices that have bigger displays, but similar specifications.
Cityman is designed to be the flagship phone for Windows 10, and will reportedly include a 5.7-inch QHD display, Qualcomm octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 20-megapixel camera at the rear.
Microsoft is planning to use a removable rear cover for access to the battery and microSD slots, despite the presence of 32GB of internal storage. Cityman will support the new Continuum for phones feature to transform a phone into a PC, and Microsoft is planning to bundle some additional hardware with the phone to enable this.
Microsoft’s second Talkman Lumia will be slightly smaller and will reportedly feature a 5.2-inch QHD display, a Qualcomm hexa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 20-megapixel camera. While most of the specifications are the same as Cityman, the processor appears to be the big change. Both handsets are also expected to include a triple-LED flash to support different tones for photos, alongside a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
Both of Microsoft’s new Lumia devices are expected to ship with Windows 10 later this year.
