Earlier this month, Microsoft introduced a number of Windows 10 Mobile powered handsets, including the flagship Lumia 950 and 950 XL. However, it seems the company is reportedly working on more new Windows Phone handsets which will see the light of the day in the coming weeks or months.
One such handset was spotted on the benchmarking website GFXBench, revealing some of the specifications of the device. The handset in question is dubbed as Quanta MTP8952. The listing reveals the handset comes with a 4.7-inch display sporting a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels with the processing handled by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor and Adreno 405 GPU.
The handset will apparently comes with 2GB of RAM — it does shows 0.9GB, but it’s usually the free RAM available on such benchmarking websites. There’s nothing mentioned about the rear camera, while the front-facing camera is said to be a 0.9MP sensor. Furthermore, it should come with Windows 10 Mobile.
There’s no word about any such handsets, but we’ve heard in the past that Microsoft has around six new handsets in the pipeline, some of them are already revealed at the big event earlier this month. We’ll update you as soon as we hear anything more about it.
