Microsoft Lumia 940 & 940 XL rumored to cost more than the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6

Lumia940

New rumors about Microsoft’s upcoming Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL flagship smartphones claim that the two devices will be priced even higher than the Apple iPhone 6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6.

The report from Dutch website MyWinows.nl suggests that the Lumia flagship duo will be made out of polycarbonate and not metal as we were expecting. They may still employ a metal frame though, as this has not been ruled out by the report.

It also confirms that the Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL will be equipped with an iris scanner for security. Rest of the reported specs seem to be nearly identical to previous rumors. The Lumia 940 is said to feature a 5.2-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 808 chipset, 3GB RAM, 20MP PureView rear camera with triple-LED flash, and a front-facing 5MP camera.

The Lumia 940 XL on the other hand is expected to arrive with a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, Snapdragon 810 SoC, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal memory, 20MP PureView rear camera with triple-LED flash, and a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies.

Both the devices are expected to be launched by November this year and are rumored to support Microsoft’s Continuum feature. An adaptor for the same will be released in early 2016, priced at 100 Euros.

What do you guys feel? Do you think the Lumia 940 and the Lumia 940 XL could be successful if priced higher than the iPhone and Android flagships?
