Windows Set to Unleash Flagship Lumia Smartphones
Good News and bad news await Microsoft fans. It seems that Microsoft is approaching the peak of their long period of development for Windows 10, Which is great news , but only for those with the bigger toys. For those who were hopping to experience its mobile version, they would have to wait a litle while longer to get one of the flagship Lumia handsets to be released.
What’s taking it so long? Apparently, Windows 10 will be the last and final installment of the popular operating system. Once it is made available for the public to use, there would be no need to download or purchase newer versions. All they have to do is dowload the regular updates thar¿t will be sent in the same way that they update their mobile apps. This, according to the company, is part of their effort to market Windows not as a product, but a service.
The mobile version will come out with two mobile devices, which to date is being called “Cityman” and “Talkman”. Of course, there is a huge probability that these will not be the official names, and are just being used a temporary name for the two models.
The Lumia Cytiman is Microsoft’s entry in the phablet battle, with a 2560 x 1440 QHD resolution on its 5.7-inch display. It is going to use an octacore Qualcomm Snapdragon as a processor, with 32 GB of storage and 3GB of RAM. It will alsi feature microSD support, a 5-megapivel front camera, and a 20-megapixel main camera, with 3300mAh batteries.
The Lumia Tlkman, however, is going to be smaller version, which makes it the main smartphone candidate. It will have a 5.2 inch screen, and will be using a hexacore Qualcomm processor .Camera will be the same with the Cytiman all around , although its batteries will be smaller at 300mAh.
Both phones will be having triple-LED flashes, with each LED showing a different tone or shade for different effects. Microsoft will also make it easier for Microsoft users to seamlessly move from one Windows device to another the same way that Apple makes it easy for Mac and iPhone users to access messages or make calls using different devices.
Of course, no details have been released yet when it comes to pricing, and whether these Lumia phones will actually run Windows 10 out of the box. So far though, people are quite expectant of these promises and are willing to wait until these Lumias are released. A lot have said that a few months more of waiting wouldn’t really make a difference, and would all be worth it if the gadgets do live up to the hype that it’s creating.
For now, Microsoft lovers would be better off waiting for the release of the operating system’s desktop version. But the anticipation for the mobile one would surely grow deeper through time, and will have people banging on the doors of stores that sell electronics the moment a release date is announced.
