The upcoming Microsoft Lumia 940 XL has been rumored for a few months at this point, as the phablet half of the company's two Windows 10-running flagships for the latter part of the year. Complementing it in the software giant's roster will be the smaller Lumia 940.
Today we get a very good idea about what to expect from the Lumia 940 XL in terms of specs, because it's been put through the paces of a benchmark that thankfully lists the most important hardware information in its online database.
And it mostly confirms past mumblings about the device. So, the Lumia 940 XL (model number RM-1100) will sport a 5.7-inch QHD (2,560x1,440) touchscreen, as well as a rear camera featuring a resolution of at least 17 MP - but certainly more, since this benchmark always underrepresents these values. So we assume there will at least be a 20 MP lens in there. It will shoot 4K video.
Moving on, we've got a 5 MP selfie snapper, 16GB of built-in storage, and at least 1.5GB of RAM (but more likely 2GB, again because the benchmark under reports such values). Running the show will be Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 SoC, which is confirmed by the presence of the Adreno 430 GPU. This will have an octa-core CPU in ARM's big.LITTLE configuration as always.
The Lumia 940 XL is going to be introduced as the first top of the line phablet to run the new mobile version of Windows 10, and it's expected to become official in the next few months. It might have a USB Type-C connector, and even some iris scanning tech on board. Its battery capacity has been rumored to be 3,300 mAh.
