Upcoming Windows 10 phones Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are expected to come with high-end features like wireless charging and iris scanner, reports reveal.

The two phones have been codenamed Talkman (950) and Cityman (950 XL), according to FirstPost.

Windows Central explained that the naming of the two devices has been earlier debated since these was first known to come out as Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL.

It added that the final name of the devices will be decided by September.

The same report said that the both devices will come with a matte white or black polycarbonate body.

The Lumia 950 is said to have a 5.2 inch (1440x2560) display while the bigger Lumia 950 XL will come with a 5.7-inch OLED display.

Other specifications of the device are the following as per Windows Central:

Talkman (Lumia 950)

    Snapdragon 808, 64-bit Hexa core

    Iris scanner (infrared) for Windows Hello

    3GB of RAM

    32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot

    20MP PureView rear camera

    5MP Wide-angle front facing camera

    3000 mAh removable battery

    Qi wireless charging with flip cover

    USB Type-C

Cityman (Lumia 950 XL)

     Snapdragon 810, 64-bit Octa core

    Iris scanner (infrared) for Windows Hello

    3GB of RAM

    32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot

    20MP PureView rear camera with triple LED flash

    1mm silver ring inside the circumference of the black camera pod

    Aluminum side buttons

    5MP Wide-angle front facing camera

    3300 mAh removable battery

    Qi wireless charging integrated

    USB Type-C

FirstPost highlighted that the two smartphones will have Qi wireless charging and also an infrared/iris scanner "that will unlock the device in seconds" after a scan of the user's face.

Wireless charging, on the other hand, will be capable of transmitting power to a receiver in a portable device. This reportedly uses a system which charges devices using resonant inductive coupling.

Meanwhile, Softpedia noted that the phones may also come with "on-screen keys instead of capacitive keys."

"It could be that the Redmond tech giant has been gathering feedback from users who might prefer on-screen keys for a couple of reasons. First off, you rid yourself of those annoying accidental presses, and secondly, once you're not using these keys, they quickly vanish into thin air," added the same report.

If it will indeed come with this feature, the phones will be more user friendly and will have an improved mobile experience.

Earlier, NDTV indicated that the phones could be launched, along with other devices, during the IFA event this September.
