According to the benchmark test results, the Lumia 940 XL will have 16 GB of internal storage, and at least 1.5GB of RAM. GSMArena claims that benchmark testing sites usually undervalue the configurations, meaning the device could even house a 2 GB unit. It will have the following sensors such as accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, light sensor, proximity and NFC. The Lumia 940 XL will reportedly be the first Windows handset to come pre-installed with the Windows 10 OS.

The Lumia 940 XL is expected to pack a 20MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. Rumors suggest that the handset will feature a USB Type-C connector, native pen support and an iris scanner for authentication which will permit users to unlock their device through its front facing camera unit.

Although Microsoft has not yet made the 940 XL release date official, it is expected that the handset could be unveiled in the coming months. Redmond is yet to confirm the Lumia 940 XL specifications.
