Microsoft hasn’t announced a Windows Phone flagship for a while now but it looks like that it had been holding its cards for something worth the wait. The successor of the Lumia 930 with the moniker Lumia 940 is coming soon and it might see a showcase as soon as next week (April 29) at Microsoft’s BUILD Conference.

The Lumia 940 will also get a bigger sibling with the moniker Lumia 940 XL. The Lumia 940 will pack in a 5.2-inch display whereas the bigger sibling will get a display size of 5.7-inches.

The two will run Windows 10 out-of-the box and with the next iteration of Windows bringing in the support for high-end chipsets, Microsoft is expected to put a Snapdragon 810 under their hoods. Imaging has been one of the strongest suites and the rear camera of the device is expected to come with a resolution of 25-megapixels or 24-megapixels.

The front camera will also see a bump in the resolution and it will be increased to 5-megapixels or 8-megapixels. The Lumia 940 is expected to come in with a native pen support (stylus), iris scanning abilities and 3D-like interactions. The 3D-like interaction is a technology that Nokia had been working on even before Microsoft took charge of things.

So this might just be the time when we see the technology waiting in the wings occupying the centre stage. Microsoft HoloLens headset might see an integration too. Microsoft is expected to announce two new mid-range handsets as well at the BUILD conference.
