Lumia 950

Next week, Microsoft will be holding a keynote in New York where they will be unveiling new hardware to the likes of Surface Pro 4, new Lumias and the Band 2. But, like many keynotes in the past, such as Mobile World Congress, Microsoft has accidentally posted the two phones, codenamed Cityman and Talkman, to the web a bit early.

Officially called the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, the phones were briefly live on the UK version of the Microsoft store and offered up the specs but no pricing.

The 950 will have a 5.2in WQHD display, 20 MP camera and 32GB of storage with microSD support for up to 2TB. The 950XL has the same specs but the display size is increased to 5.7in.

The specs and images confirm everything that was already known about these devices but with this accidental release, this solidifies what the company will be announcing next week. I will say that there, at one point, was a blue Lumia 950 that is not shown in these images that may be a carrier exclusive or was dropped ahead of release.

With the event being a little less than a week away, keep your eyes open if you are browsing Microsoft’s online stores as these gems might to start to show up in other places too.
