Rumour: Lumia 940 to include Iris scanner, dock


We are not sure how trust-worthy the source is, but today we have a rather tasty rumour to share.

According to Fudzilla the next Windows Phone flagship, the Lumia 940 , will come with 2 rather interesting features.

First, the device is said to feature an Iris scanner for biometric authentication, in contrast to the fingerprint scanner most companies are using. According to Fudzilla it would rely on near-infrared light, and would therefore work in the dark.

Secondly, the device will feature support for a docking station, where it would be able to connect to accessories or function as a stand-alone computer, much like the  ill-fated Motorola Atrix.

On somewhat more solid ground, they note that the device may be powered by a 28nm Snapdragon 805, or a 20nm Snapdragon 810.

It will also feature  20-30 Megapixel camera and 3 LED flash lights.

I cant comment too much on the plausibility of the rumour, but I am thankful that the Windows Phone flagship rumour mill is finally starting, and we will hopefully have more meaty leaks soon.
