The first two brand new, cutting edge handsets in line for Windows 10  will be “Cityman” and “Talkman”. Cityman will boast a 5.7-inch QHD (that’s 1440 x 2560 pixels) display, with a 64-bit Qualcomm octa-core processor, alongside 3GB of RAM.

Last week during the Microsoft Build 2015 conference we saw just how serious Microsoft was in their efforts to get back in the game. And boy, have they succeeded. Pulling out all the stops, we know the same will be said of the newest flagship that will come with Windows 10 out the box. So although that means we won’t see it until the summer at the earliest, we know the new Lumia will be something like we’ve never seen before. It will no longer be the mid-range phones of the past.

According to Unleash The Phones, the first two brand new, cutting edge handsets in line for new OS will be “Cityman” and “Talkman”. If the word on the street is to be believed, Cityman will boast a 5.7-inch QHD (that’s 1440 x 2560 pixels) display, with a 64-bit Qualcomm octa-core processor (but whether it will be Snapdragon 808 or Snapdragon 810, we aren’t sure), alongside 3GB of RAM. All of that is topped off with 32GB of storage, a microSD card slot, a 20 megapixel rear snapper and a 5 megapixel front snapper, with a 3300mAh removable (take that, Samsung) battery.

For those that believe smaller is better, Talkman will feature a 5.2-inch display (with the same QHD dream screen), but with a slower hexa-core Qualcomm processor and a 3000mAh removable battery. Everything else lines up exactly the same though, which means both devices are boasting some pretty nifty specs.

Both cameras will also support a triple-LED flash, with each LED having a different shade (or tone) that allows the photos to grab the most natural colors.

But that was all just hardware. Apparently Microsoft has made new software similar to the “Hand-off” on the iOS/OSX that will allow you to receive a call from your Windows Phone but pick it up on your Windows PC.
