Earlier this morning, images of the Lumia 950 (or 950 XL, hard to tell) were revealed on the forum WPXAP. Now, a new picture posted on Weibo shows the phone without the protective case meant to disguise its shape and size.

The image makes it look like that this is the Lumia 950 aka Talkman due to the hand in the photo for reference. This picture looks more like the 5.2-inch WQHD variant rather than the 5.7-inch Cityman. However, we cannot be certain at this time.

Note: The original photo is on the right; the one to the left is Photoshopped to "virtually" remove the case.

Without the protective shell, we can see that the front of the device is very narrow, including a very slim bezel near the bottom. Indeed, except for the top bezel the phone is very slick looking and appears quite small considering the 5.2-inch (1440x2560) OLED display.

Cityman (Lumia 950 XL)

  • Matte White or black polycarbonate body
  • 5.7 inch WQHD (1440x2560) OLED display
  • 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
  • Aluminum side buttons

From this perspective and without the shell this upcoming Lumia looks quite nice. We'll, of course, have to wait until Microsoft announces the phones, likely in October, to make a final judgement.

For now, what do you think?
