Microsoft’s upcoming Lumia 940 smartphone will bear Snapdragon 808 SOC

There have been many rumors that Microsoft is working on new flagship smartphones, the Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL. Well, it looks like we’ve got concrete evidence on the former device as it was recently spotted on a benchmark website carrying some pretty beefy hardware.

The phone was listed as the RM-1106 and the information revealed is a lot similar to what was leaked about the Microsoft Lumia 940. The phone is expected to arrive as the successor to the Lumia 930, but the branding isn’t confirmed.

By the looks of things, the handset might not be a major upgrade over its predecessor and that’s mainly since we’re only seen a new processor, while the rest of the components are more of less the same. Well, Microsoft is sure to thrown in some exciting features, but there’s no concrete information as yet.
