'Cityman' Quad HD Microsoft Lumia exposed in AdDuplex report, static market share for Windows Phone

The June numbers are out from AdDuplex, one of the largest advertising platforms for Windows Phone and developers. The figures are gathered from apps running on Windows Phone and are used to measure market share within the Windows Phone ecosystem.

Because there are fewer new phones hitting the market, there is even less movement this month over last. Instead, we see the continued trends of the Lumia 63x and Lumia 535 growing in many regions, including in the US, France, Italy, and Poland. However, these are modest shifts mostly at the cost of declining Lumia 520 users.

In the US, the Lumia 635 is up 2.8% from last month and now commands nearly 40 percent (38.9%) of all Windows Phones when combined with the Lumia 630.

Despite great reviews, the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL do not seem to be grabbing much of the Windows Phone pie just yet.

Microsoft and Nokia continue to control the Windows Phone market with a massive 96.74 percent of all devices.

Those utilizing Windows 10 Mobile on their phone now account for 2.5 percent of all Windows Phone users, a number certainly to grow in the coming months. As AdDuplex notes, this means one out of every 40 Windows Phone users is on Microsoft's next-gen phone OS.

New Microsoft Lumias

Finally, AdDuplex has identified two new Lumias evidently being tested. They include:

  • Microsoft RM-1104, RM-1105 with a 5.2-inch 1080p display
  • Microsoft RM-1100 with a Quad HD (1440x2560) display (size unknown)

Microsoft is rumored to be developing at least two flagship level phones codenamed 'Cityman' and 'Talkman'. It is more than likely that the devices spotted here are part of that development process. Here are the details that were reported earlier on those devices:

'Talkman' rumored specifications

  • 5.2 inch QHD display
  • Qualcomm-based six core processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot
  • 20MP rear camera
  • 5MP front facing camera,
  • 3000 mAh removable battery
  • USB Type-C

'Cityman' specifications

  • 5.7 inch QHD display
  • Qualcomm-based eight core processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot
  • 20MP rear camera
  • 5MP front facing camera,
  • 3300 mAh removable battery
  • USB Type-C

Windows Central can now confirm through our various sources the specifications noted above for 'Cityman'. Additionally, we can add that it does have a 20 MP rear camera and a triple LED flash like the one in the above fan-render. Expected release of those phones is later this year, likely in the October or November timeframe.

AdDuplex will post their full numbers for June on their blog on Monday, June 29.
