First Microsoft smartphones on Windows 10
Windows 10 is one of the things that we will get this summer and we’ve known for a long time that the new OS will power not only desktop and notebook computers but also tablets and smartphones under the Microsoft brand. Until now, however, we had no information on the first Microsoft smartphones on the new OS but this is no longer the case since a rather persevering online rumor claims they will be called Lumia Talkman and Lumia Cityman.
There’s little information on the two new devices except for the tech specs but we guess this is the most important information so here it is – the Lumia Talkman will be a classic smartphone that will have a large 5.2-inch display at Quad HD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels), a six-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory, one rear camera at 20 MP and another front camera at 5 MP, a 3000 mAh battery and of course Windows 10.
The Lumia Cityman will be a phablet with a large 5.7-inch display at the same Quad HD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels). The device will offer an unnamed 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory, one rear camera at 20 MP and another front camera at 5 MP, a 3300 mAh battery and Windows 10.
In addition to this news Microsoft has confirmed that the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640XL, which were presented at MWC 2015, will also get Windows 10. Don’t get too excited, though – the mobile version of Windows 10 will appear later than the desktop one, which is expected sometime this summer.
