Microsoft has confirmed an event for 6 October, where the software titan is expected to launch new products, including 2015 flagships Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL. The widely-rumoured Cityman and Talkman handsets, which are the codenames for Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL, respectively, have surfaced online in several instances but the latest leak comes from the official Microsoft Store.
The Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL briefly appeared on UK's Microsoft Store, which was spotted by an eagle-eyed Twitter user. The product listing did not reveal the price or availability of the handsets but gave away the key specifications. The leaked specs are in line with the previously leaked rumours, unofficially confirming what the handsets might feature at launch.
According to WinBeta, the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL both sport a 20-megapixel camera with Carl ZEISS optics and 32GB internal memory with microSD card expansion up to 2TB. The Lumia 950 will feature a 5.2-inch Quad HD display while the Lumia 950XL, as the name suggests, gets treated with a larger 5.7-inch QHD screen. The listing also showed that the upcoming phones will run on Windows 10 OS and not Windows 10 Mobile.
Microsoft has since pulled down the listing but clicking on the Lumia 950 or Lumia 950XL redirected users to the homepage.

Some specifications such as the processor configuration was missing from the listing. However, the leaked specifications of the handsets suggested a Qualcomm processor on both phones. The Lumia 950 will feature a Snapdragon 808 chipset with 3GB RAM while the Lumia 950XL will get an upgraded Snapdragon 810 SoC. Both phones will sport a 3GB RAM and a 5MP front camera.
Microsoft hasn't commented on the new products but the official product launch event will serve as a good platform to unfold all the mysteries. At the event, Microsoft is also expected to launch the rumoured Surface Pro 4.
