Microsoft Lumia 940 specs leaked online

Yesterday we reported that this week we will get the first Microsoft-branded Lumia smartphone and we even reported the supposed tech specs. While the launch is for sure, being scheduled for November 11, which happens to be today, we now have information on a new Lumia device with significantly better specs that will soon be on the market. Suddenly things have become a bit confusing.

Here’s an explanation – the initial specs that we reported were either incorrect or Microsoft plans to release more devices on the market than expected at first. In both cases customers win as they will either get a better smartphone or more devices to choose among. We believe the case that we have leans towards the second hypothesis but this remains to be seen.

Anyway the new smartphone is called Microsoft Lumia 940 and here we will list its preliminary specs. The device is said to measure 137 x 71 x 8.9 mm and weighs 149 grams. Inside its chassis it houses a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor at 2.7 GHz, Adreno 420 graphics, a large 5-inch display at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) with Gorilla Glass 4 protection, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB/64 GB/128 GB of memory, a microSD card slot (up to 128 GB), Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, NFC, a GPS receiver, a rear 24 MP camera that can record Ultra HD video at 60 FPS, a front 5 MP camera, a USB 3.0 port and numerous sensors. Furthermore Microsoft Lumia 940 will run Windows Phone 10.

Impressive, isn’t it? Unfortunately, as you know such specs mean that the smartphone will not be cheap but we can say that it is an excellent device. No word on when we will be able to get it and how much it will cost as of now but given that it will run Windows Phone 10 we may have to wait for a while before we can put the Lumia 940 in our back pocket..
