Microsoft is rumored to be working on high-end Lumia phones that are expected to see light of the day after the Windows 10 is released in summer this year.  The purported specifications of the two Lumia handsets  have surfaced. These handsets are codenamed 'Cityman' and 'Talkman' and they are said to target the high end segment of users.

In its report, Unleash The Phones noted that Lumia 'Cityman' will be expected to feature a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, 3 GB of RAM, a Qualcomm octa-core processor, a 20-megapixel rear camera, 32 GB of built-in storage coupled with a microSD card support, a 3300mAh battery and a 5-megapixel front camera.

On the other hand, Lumia ‘Talkman’ is expected to come with a QHD display of 5.2-inch, 3GB of RAM, a hexa-core Qualcomm processor, 3000mAh battery, 5-megapixel front camera and 20-megapixel rear camera.

Unleash The Phones publication also pointed out that Microsoft will try keeping the phones slimmer when compared to the Lumia 930 devices. The two handsets are speculated to have a 64-bit processor, while sporting a triple-LED flash.

Considering that nothing about these two phones has been firmed by Microsoft, users may want to take these leak outs with a pinch of salt. Microsoft has only hinted that the next flagship phones may only be due come the next half of this year. The Redmond tech giant is only expected to launch its high end phone devices after the release of Windows 10.

Although Microsoft was said to be on tract in releasing Windows 10 during summer, it further clarified that this OS will arrive for PCs initially before it is released in other devices like smartphones, Xbox, HoloLens and Surface devices. Microsoft has not yet revealed when exactly the Windows 10 PC release will come and it’s all just but speculations for now.
