We’ve spent the last couple of months covering many rumors regarding future Windows 10 Mobile Lumia flagships in the works. Sadly these haven’t gone beyond rumors, something quite unfortunate for a platform that’s hungry for flagships. That said most of these rumors coincide with each other so far, so it seems we’re close to something good.

Yesterday we saw some of the specs we should expect for two Windows Phone flagships that we currently assume to be the Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL. Today we hear more about these devices, codename Talkman and Cityman. The specs apparently are exactly the same that we read about yesterday, which is definitely a good thing. The devices will have a change in design though, as reports claim that they’ll look more like the Lumia 830 with a replaceable battery cover. We’re not sure if that also means replaceable everything else, given how odd it is to find Lumia flagships with swappable storage.

We also hear that USB Type-C will be not just part of the design of these new devices, but also a crucial feature for services like Microsoft Continuum to work. Reports go as far as to mention iris scanners to enable the new Windows Hello security feature. Those of you waiting for a successor to the Lumia 1020, it seems 2016 is the closest estimate.

I guess with all this in the package, it does make sense for Microsoft to not launch these new phones until Windows 10 arrives. We should learn more official news this summer.
