Designer Ryan Smalley from USA has previously rendered a great Lumia 935 concept and now he’s back with new designs, the Microsoft Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL models. These are flagships with Windows 10 on board and great cameras.

Microsoft Lumia 940 concept 1

There’s a 40 megapixel Pureview camera on board, with optical image stabilization and high resolution zoom. Both models come with a fresh design, that involves a bezel-free display, aluminum chassis and polycarbonate enclosure, as well as a pronounced rear camera, that’s wrapped within a polished aluminum ring. This time the camera isn’t bulky and it’s quite discrete at the back of the handsets.

These models have a profile that reminds me of the Surface tablet and they come with thin chassis made of metal, from what I can see. Microsoft Lumia 940 XL adopts a 40 megapixel camera with Pureview technology, OIS and high res zoom, while the Lumia 940 gets a 20 MP shooter, with the same features. The bigger unit has a Quad HD 5.7 inch screen and the smaller one gets a 5 incher.

There’s a big Xenon flash at the back and the OS here is Windows 10 for phones, with transparent UI, revamped settings area, new web browser and all the goodies.

  • I like the design.To be honest this phone does not need XL version.
    This means the 1030 ,1330 and 1530 will be pointless because the 1020 is a camera phone,while the rest are phablets.

    To solve this problem the 940 needs this;

    -5.4inch QHD ,600 PPi
    -6.7mp sefie, 28.7mp 1/2″ sensor with 940 XL improvements +10 x optical zoom,HDR

    -25600 IOS Level

    -64GB/ 3GB ram, 128GB/4 GB ram
    -5.1, 7.1 dolby surround sound
    -Fm transmeter, baromter

    -heartrate sensor, fingerprint….
    -I,R blaster

    -4 stero speakers

    -2X HDMI ports
    -2X Charging ports

    – A combination of metal and glass on its body.

    -Optional duall nano sim or single

    -water, dust and shock proof.
    – Duall led Torch light on the top right.

    No need for 40 MP, 28.7 is enough to conquer any smartphone. 5.4inch sounds special because there is no 5.4 inch on the maket.

    Stay blessed.

    Just a random thought, it looks like a rip off version off Iphone

    Premium feeling, 40MP Camera etc. It’s a winner on two conditions.
    1) If they don’t fix the OS (Win 10 for phones) with what 8.1 is missing it’ll be a blank shot again. I refer in particular to the lacks in apps (I speak as the owner of a 1520 with 8.1 GDR 1 and another 1520 with Tech Preview on it). Office non working, email still lacking (8.1), lack of certain keyboard inputs etc. Will make the OS seem unaccomplished once again. Sharing functions are also limited; browsing is terrible compared to Android, BB or Iphone.
    2) Personal opinion:I like the premium feeling and i am sold on the OS (if it improves) but i don’t like these Samsung/Iphone like round corners. I love the slab shape of Nokia 1520 and would be looking for something similar if possible. Another premium render was made of an even better one (which i can’t find) and that one was really good. I wouldn’t be 100% sold on these curved edges
