Microsoft is long rumored to be working on a Surface Phone. Speculations now suggest that Lumia lineup will continue to co-exist with Surface phone.
Meanwhile, a smartphone with model number RM-1162 has been spotted on GFXBench database. The listing shows that the alleged Lumia 960 will be arriving with 5.5-inch display that will carry support for Quad HD resolution.
The RM-1162 is powered by Snapdragon 820 chipset. The listing shows that the smartphone features 1.5 GB of RAM. However, various tech sites have reported that the mysterious smartphone would be arriving with 4 GB of RAM.
It is expected to arrive with 32 GB of storage. A prototype model of the smartphone was found featuring 16 GB of storage. Although the benchmarking site has mentioned the camera of the device as 7-megapixel, it seems to be incorrect.

However, the NPU report has revealed that it will be coming with full-metal body, Windows 10 Mobile Redstone 1 and iris scanner. Rumors suggest that it will release in second or third quarter of 2016.
