Most of the Lumia concepts we receive seem to focus on the Lumia 940 or a potential Lumia 1030/1040, but today we go into a more midrange segment. Why? Because we’ve just received via email a render of the Microsoft Lumia 840 XL, done by Lucas Silva.
This model comes with a Snapdragon 620 hexa core processor, as well as a 6 inch Full HD OLED display. The handset measures 7.7 mm in thickness, which is quite slim by Lumia standards. The device has 2 GB of RAM, 8, 16, 32, 64 or 128 GB of storage. At the back there’s a 13 megapixel camera and upfront an 8 megapixel selfie shooter. This feels like an upgraded Lumia 640 XL, if you ask me.
The battery is also more beefy, at 4000 mAh and the OS of choice is predictably Windows 10. The handset is pretty wide and seems to be pretty solid, perhaps made of metal or maybe that more premium polycarbonate that the Lumia 930 had. Usually Lumia phablets have kickass battery lives and great screens. That’s probably the selling point here too.
The design is pretty basic and doesn’t bring anything new to the Lumia family.
