A leak from WMPowerUser has revealed the specifications for the Lumia 940 and 940 XL, the flagship Windows 10 devices expected to come out in November. The publication is also reporting that the phones are expected to cost more than the iPhone 6, which starts at $649 without a contract.
Both devices come with a 20-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera. The devices will be made out of polycarbonate, a curious choice for a high-end phone considering other devices like the iPhone 6 use a metal casing.
The two key differences between the devices are that the 940 has a 5.2-inch 1920x1080 screen, while the 940 XL has a 5.7-inch 2560x1440 screen. The larger-screen version also has a slightly beefier Snapdragon 810 processor, while the smaller version comes with a Snapdragon 808, according to the report.
Both phones come with an iris scanner. This will be an important addition for using one of Windows 10’s core features, the Hello authentication system. Customers will be able to scan their iris to prove their identity in a variety of situations.
The report also states that the phones will support Continuum. This feature allows customers to use their phone scaled-up on a larger screen with a keyboard and mouse. Microsoft is epected to release a dock for 100 euros (around $110) in early 2016 that will enable this functionality.
The news comes at a time when Microsoft’s phone division is undergoing a major restructuring. The company recently merged its Windows and Devices divisions, and announced significant layoffs at its phone hardware department. In Finland, 2,300 Microsoft employees will be losing their jobs, a two-thirds reduction in the workforce.
