If you still trust in Windows Phone OS and waiting for the upcoming high-end Lumia smartphone then this news may be pleasing for you. Apart from few mid-range smartphones, especially the Lumia 840 which is on its way for consumers, Windows Phone 10 OS, and the desktop Windows 10 OS, Microsoft is said to be working on two new high-end flagships.
At the moment, there are very few details known of the devices which are codenamed Cityman and Talkman. Both the devices are going to be launched later this year, probably in Q3 of 2015.

No doubt, both devices are going to run on Windows Phone 10 OS which is on its way to get unveiled. The OS is going to be one of the main attractions of the devices. But, that’s not going to be only thing to help the device get better sales graph.
Coming at the specifications details known so far, the first device, codenamed Cityman, can feature 5.7inch display with Quad HD resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset (probably the high-end one with octa-core CPU), 3GB of RAM, 32/64GB internal storage, storage expansion slot, LTE, and 3,300mAh battery.
PureView technology is going to be part of rear camera unit which is expected to feature at least 20MP sensor while the front part is going to hold a 5MP snapper.
Now the second device, codenamed Talkman, is going to be a compact model (probably the main flagship), in comparison to first one and it is going to feature 5.2inch Quad HD display, hexa-core CPU on Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, 3GB of RAM, 32/64GB of internal storage, 3,000mAh battery. The camera units at front and rear are going to be same as of Cityman device.

These are the only details known so far and I really want the real devices to have at least this level of specifications. But, since we are talking of their launch to be held in Q3, we are likely to see a bump in flagship specifications till then.
So, Microsoft needs to take care of trend and deliver consumers a real flagship which can compete with the charms of Android flagships, and not to forget current iPhone models and their coming upgrades.
