Expected to be the Microsoft’s flagship phablet for 2015, the Lumia 940 XL is a subject of numerous rumors flooding the net for several months. Today the Windows phone surfaced one more time in report suggesting that it will be launched later this year with a Snapdragon 810 processor on the board. Let’s take a close-up at the recent leak and see what much information we can squeeze from it.
Lumia 940 XL to be powered by the Qualcomm’s latest processor
Although the GFXBench specifications do not reveal the exact processor ticking under Lumia 940 XL’s hood, however, it lists the Adreno 430, which is a graphic processor used by the Qualcomm’s latest chipset, which is Snapdragon 810. Beyond that the benchmark test surely doesn’t give us a complete specs sheet, however, it confirms some of the latest rumors concerning the upcoming flagship.
The Lumia 940 XL (model number RM-1100) is likely to sport a large 5.7-inch Quad-HD screen and really powerful optics represented by a definitely selfie-friendly 5MP front-facing shooter and at least 17MP main camera and camcorder capable to record 4K videos since benchmark tests always underrate optic parameters. Reportedly, a beefy 3,300 mAh battery, iris scanning tech and USB Type-C connector might be also present.
According the GFXBench the octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor will be supported by with 1.5GB RAM and 16GB of built-in storage. This is of course one of the speculated theories, other says that it will feature 3GB RAM and 32GB of native storage, which frankly speaking sounds more probable and far more appropriate as for a flagship phablet.
The Lumia 940 XL along with its more compact sibling, the Lumia 940, are the very first handsets to work on the latest Windows 10, which is rumored to hit the market no sooner than in the mid-September. This gives as a clear hint so as to the expected premiere date of the handset.
Note that so far none of this information has been officially confirmed by Microsoft. Needless to say, the specs of the phablet are still a subject to change. The device will surely pass a number of other benchmark test before it will become available on the commercial market.
Time will verify whether our speculations were at least partially accurate. At this point however it’s safer to take all of them with a pinch of salt.
