Specs of Lumia 940 are Rumored
Microsoft seems to be planning to return with a vengeance. Its upcoming flagship will use the popular Lumia branding, specifically the Lumia 940. Screenshots of the device have circulated recently. But, while we can’t really guarantee the validity of these new images, the rumoured specs do seem believable.
Unfortunately, Microsoft may eschew the more popular Quad HD screen resolution and it will stay with the more common Full HD resolution on its 5-inch display. Obviously, any flagship model is expected to feature Quad HD resolution, although the immense sharpness will no longer deliver visually discernible differences compared to the current 1080p resolution. It is also interesting to note that the display will be protected with Gorilla Glass 4 layer, which hasn’t been confirmed by Corning itself. With 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor and 3GB of RAM, the new flagship won’t be underpowered at all.
Camera will likely be the best feature of the 940, since the 24Mp sensor is based on the PureView technology. It could record 4k videos at 60fps. The 5Mp front-facing shooter should be able to record at 1080 resolution. Weighing 149 grams and measuring at 8.9mm thick, the Lumia 940 should be reasonably light and compact.
