New rumors claim that Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 10 powered flagships Lumia 940 and 940 XL would come with a price tag higher than even Apple’s iPhone 6 and Samsung’s Galaxy S6. The Dutch website MyWindows.nl has reported that they have received information about these two Lumia devices from a “trusted source”.

Rumors say that both the Lumia 940 and 940 XL will be made from polycarbonate but that doesn’t mean they will come cheap. They will cost more than the two premium smartphones – the metal framed iPhone 6 which costs $699 onward and the Samsung Galaxy S6 costing $599 onward.

The newly rumored specifications for both the Lumia models match the previously leaked specs. The only new feature is the presence of an iris scanner in both Lumia 940 and 940 XL.
