Rumor RoundUp for Lumia 950 & 950XL: DualSIM variants? coming in Black, White and Cyan? Mockup renders and Sept. Launch?



There has been numerous unconfirmed reports in the past week about the upcoming Lumia flagships. So much that it is probably hard to keep up.

It's rather interesting to note that while a lot of rumors and unconfirmed reports are surfacing, there are still no actual visual of these devices nor are there are confirmations from Microsoft about the existence or even official names of the devices.

So everything I'm about to write are all rumors, so take with a pinch of salt...


First of all, let's get a recap of all the specs as leaked by numerous sources...


Talkman (Lumia 950)
  • Matte White or black polycarbonate body
  • 5.2 inch WQHD (1440x2560) OLED display
  • Snapdragon 808, 64-bit Hexa core
  • Iris scanner (infrared) for Windows Hello
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot
  • 20MP PureView rear camera
  • 5MP Wide-angle front facing camera
  • 3000 mAh removable battery
  • Qi wireless charging with flip cover
  • USB Type-C
Cityman (Lumia 950 XL)
  • Matte White or black polycarbonate body
  • 5.7 inch WQHD (1440x2560) OLED display
  • Snapdragon 810, 64-bit Octa core
  • Iris scanner (infrared) for Windows Hello
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot
  • 20MP PureView rear camera with triple LED flash
  • 1mm silver ring inside the circumference of the black camera pod
  • Aluminum side buttons
  • 5MP Wide-angle front facing camera
  • 3300 mAh removable battery
  • Qi wireless charging integrated
  • USB Type-C
The specs above have been reported by numerous sources. At WinCentral, they claim to have reliable sources who have actually seen the device and thus they provided an amateur mockup of what the Lumia 950XL would look like...





According to WinCentral, the device will be thin (between 7-8mm thick), to put in perspective, the slim iPhone 6 is 6.9mm thick and the Lumia 830 is 8.5mm so the upcoming Lumia 950 and 950XL will be somewhere in between. Also, they say there is a silver/chrome ring that goes round the camera and the buttons are aluminum, But these are rumors so we will see.

@evleaks also chimed in and claimed that the devices will also be available in Cyan and collaborated WinCentral's info (about these devices having the Windows logo on the back rather than the Microsoft brand) by providing a cropped photo of the actual Windows logo on the Cyan phone but that is all he provides unfortunately...


From the mockups created above by WinCentral and the latest revelation from @evleaks. they (WinCentral) went on to create 3D renders from the mockups, so now we have a fair view of what the Lumia 950XL could look like, as you can see from the renders below, the power button is between the volume up and down button, a new design different from traditional Lumia devices. But the elevated camera is still true to current Lumia designs...



The rumor is that the Lumia 950 and 950XL will be revealed at IFA event in Berlin early September. Though there are also conflicting reports that they would instead be launched later in Sept. at a Microsoft organized event. The take-away is that something should be announced in September regarding Windows 10 Mobile.

The last in the influx of rumors comes from the reliable guys at NokiaPowerUser.com, they now claim that these flagship Lumia 950 and 950XL would come in DualSIM variants! They also claim that the 950XL and 950 would be priced at around $649 and $600 respectively
