While we recently reported that Microsoft is set to host a hardware launch event in October where two new Lumia phones are set to be launched, a fresh leak has emerged, carrying with it fresh images of Microsoft's upcoming Lumia 950 and 950 XL smartphones!
Serial leaksters Brad Sams and Evan Blass published images on Twitter which they claimed to be the two new phones that Satya Nadella has hinged his career on. Having suffered huge losses from the smartphone business earlier this year, Nadella claimed that Microsoft is now planning to launch the fewest phones possible to keep the business afloat.
Among the new phones, two new premium phones named Lumia Cityman (950 XL) and Talkman (950) will be launched first and will be compatible with the new Windows 10 mobile OS. Even though Nadella has so far stayed mum on these phones, Unleash The Phones reported that Cityman will feature a 5.7-inch QHD display, an octa-core processor, 32GB internal storage, 3GB RAM, 20MP and 5MP cameras and a 3,300 mAh removable battery.

On the other hand, Talkman will contain a smaller 5.2-inch QHD display and will feature an octa-core processor, 32GB internal storage, 3GB RAM, 20MP and 5MP cameras and a lighter 3,000 mAh removable battery.
The two new phones will also feature wireless charging, USB Type-C ports as well as an infrared scanner in place of the usual fingerprint sensor for unlocking them.
If you were expecting Microsoft to launch the new phones at the upcoming IFA event in Berlin in September, you might have to wait a little longer. Recent reports have suggested that Microsoft will launch the phones at its own event in October instead.
