The latest, well sourced rumours suggest Microsoft will announce a slew of product, including their new flagship Lumia handsets, at an event in October.
Now NokiaPowerUser reports on a tip that the big day could be Monday, 19th October at an event in New York.
At the same event Microsoft is also expected to announce the Surface Pro 4 and Microsoft Band 2.
The rumoured specs of the Lumia 940 XL are once again:
- Slim design with polycarbonate design.
- 5.7-inch display (2560×1440)
- Octa-Core Snapdragon 810 with Adreno 430 GPU
- 3GB RAM
- 32GB of internal storage, MicroSD card slot
- 20MP PureView rear camera, 5 MP FFC
- Short Pulse variable-tone LED Flash
- USB Type-C & Dual-Role support
- Iris Scanner
- Native Pen support
The Lumia 940 has similar specs, but a smaller 5.2 inch screen and Snapdragon 808 processor instead.
The above date is highly speculative, so at this stage merely pencil it in lightly in your calendar. More should become clear however closer to the date.
