Microsoft Lumia 940, 940 XL specs leaks and expectations roundup
We’re seeing a massive amount of interest right now in the upcoming Microsoft Lumia 940 and the larger XL version. A growing amount of leaks suggests it may not be too much longer until these smartphones are made official and we’ve already seen many rumored specs and other details. Today we’re sharing a video of a Microsoft Lumia 940 and 940 XL specs leaks and expectations roundup.
Although Microsoft has produced several low to mid-range Lumia smartphones so far, we have yet to see a high-end flagship handset launched. The Microsoft Lumia 940 and 940 XL are highly anticipated as being handsets that could really fit the bill for those wanting a superior Lumia. We’ve been reporting on leaks and other news about these devices for several months now, and also a possible benchmark spot of the Lumia 940.
If you’re one of the many people waiting for the devices to be made official, it can be difficult to keep up-to-date with latest developments. That’s why we’ve embedded a YouTube video below this article from Booredatwork that neatly runs through what we know (or think we know) so far, and other expectations for the Microsoft Lumia 940 and XL model. Obviously as these phones have not been made official yet, the video is based on leaks and rumors so far. However, some things are more certain than others, for example the phones will be running Windows 10.
The video first runs through the unconfirmed specs so far on the Microsoft Lumia 940 including the rumored Short Pulse LED flash and USB Type C port. It then moves on to specs of the Lumia 940 XL including the recently rumored iris scanner addition and possibility of native pen support. The preview also covers the plausible benchmark appearance for the Lumia 940 and points out that many of the specs mentioned for both certainly seem feasible.
Finally the video covers an expected release date, and the reviewer doesn’t try to bluff it but instead states outright that currently we just don’t know. However, it’s widely expected that the release of the Microsoft Lumia 940 and 940 XL will take place in Q3 this year. Overall we think this video offers a good all-round look at what’s anticipated for both of these upcoming Lumia smartphones, and we admire the honest approach of this YouTuber.
When you’ve checked out the video below we’d really like to hear from you. Are you eagerly waiting for the Microsoft Lumia 940 and 940 XL to be made official? If these rumored specs pan out do you think either of these will be your next smartphone purchase?
