It appears Microsoft is working on a flagship Lumia smartphone. The handset, name of which isn’t clear yet, will be powered by the Snapdragon 820 processor, the newest top-of-the-line SoC from Qualcomm. The details of the phone were spotted on a benchmarking website.
A mysterious Lumia smartphone recently stopped by GFXBench database. Codenamed RM-1162, according to the listing, sports a 5.5-inch QHD display (2560×1440 pixels) coupled with Snapdragon 820 SoC, Adreno 530 GPU, and 32GB of internal storage. As for the memory, we’re looking at either a 3GB RAM module or a 4GB RAM, as the listed device has 1.5GB of free memory left.
As for the photography enthusiasts, the rear camera listed on the benchmarking website says “7MP” though that’s clearly inaccurate. The camera listing notes that the handset is capable of shooting videos in 4K resolution, which means that the camera sensor in the device is either 13-megapixel or more than that. As for the front-facing shooter, we’re looking at a 7-megapixel sensor — again, it is likely either 8-megapixel or more than that.
But that all hinges on whether the listing is something reliable to go by. GFXBench has accurately given us an early glimpse at many smartphones in the past. Moreover, Microsoft is seemingly working on the Surface Phone, according to multiple media reports,. However, at this point, we will advise you to take the aforementioned information with a grain of salt as it could be wrong after all. Even if it is accurate, the company could decide to not release it to the general public. So there’s that.
