Lumia 950 branding set for new Microsoft smartphones, reputable leaker says

Microsoft's upcoming flagship smartphones will be called the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, according to the man who leaked their renderings.

Reputable leaker Evan Blass, known as @evleaks on Twitter, tweeted that the phones will be referred to by the number 950, not 940 as had previously been rumored. Blass has a long reputation of providing accurate information and official images of upcoming smartphones and mobile devices before their release, including several Microsoft and Nokia devices.

The phones, sometimes referred to as their code names "Cityman" and "Talkman," will be Microsoft's first Windows 10 Mobile flagship devices. The Lumia 950 will reportedly feature a 5.2-inch display, while the 950 XL will reportedly feature a 5.7-inch display, and both are said to feature the same 1440x2560 resolution.

Microsoft's smaller phone allegedly features a six-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chip, while leaks indicate its larger sibling will have an eight-core Snapdragon 810 chip. Both phones are said to have 3GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, 20-megapixel rear cameras and 5-megapixel front cameras.

The company has yet to announce an event for their formal unveiling, but recent reports have indicated Microsoft may reveal the phones alongside its next Surface Pro tablets and Microsoft Band fitness device sometime in October or possibly as soon as late September.
