Lumia 940 and 940 XL may be more expensive than iPhone 6

It is not a secret that Microsoft plans to storm the smartphone market with two new high-end smartphones later this year with the models being the Lumia 940 and the Lumia 940 XL. Unfortunately for Microsoft fans, though, online rumors suggest that both devices will be more expensive than the competing iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 handsets.

This is strange given where Microsoft comes from and the fact that the smartphones will likely run Windows 10 does not make things better. Add the fact that the Lumia 940 and the Lumia 940 XL are rumored to come with polycarbonate chassis instead of metallic ones and we are all now ready to raise an eyebrow.

Apart from this the Lumia 940 is expected to come with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 808 processor, 3 GB of RAM, a 20 MP PureView rear camera with triple-LED flash and a front 5 MP camera. The Lumia 940 XL is expected to come with a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 810 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory and the same 20 MP rear/5 MP front camera duo. Both smartphones will also come with built-in iris scanners for increased security.

The Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL are expected in November of this year and will likely come with support for Microsoft’s Continuum feature.
