A bunch of unconfirmed news about the upcoming Windows 10 Mobile flagship Lumia devices (aka CityMan and TalkMan).
First of all, @evleaks unofficially confirms that the official brand name for the couple of flagships will be the Lumia 950 and 950XL. There has been a lot of confusion whether these devices will be called the 940 or the 950. So with this tweet from @evleaks we can put that to rest. He is very reliable with leaks afterall.
Next up, according to reputable site (known for their leaks), NokiaPowerUser also got tipped that both the Lumia 950 and 950XL will be coming to At&t and T-Mobile first, they will be available in the first week of Nov. then becoming available on T-Mobile. Though, the rumor is that At&t will get both models while T-Mobile will get just the Lumia 950. As the 950XL will be exclusive to At&t.
NPU also says that Microsoft will unveil both flagship devices on October 19th.
Then there's the latest rumor has it that both devices will have the "Quick Charge" feature which allows the phone battery to go from 0% to 60% real quick, real quick (in 30mins). As you may or may not know, this feature is available on both SnapDragon 808 and 810 CPUs. This rumor is courtesy ITHome
And lastly, Paul Thurrott is got tipped on the specs for the continuum dock that's coming later this year. We already saw a leaked image of the dock but now Paul Thurrott spills the beans on what ports are available. He says it comprises of 3 USB ports, a HDMI and a DisplayPort.
So that's the rumor roundup regarding the CityMan and TalkMan.

- Will have a launch event on October 19th
- Will come with Quick Charge 2.0 feature (charge from 0% to 60% in 30mins)
