According to the latest rumor, both Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL, which are going to be Microsoft’s upcoming flagship smartphone duo are going to be much more expensive in comparison to the starting price of both Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6. In addition to Lumia and Lumia 940 XL, Microsoft also plans on releasing a boatload of Windows handsets this year.

Unlike current generation flagship smartphones, which are incorporated with metal builds, both Windows mobile devices will feature a polycarbonate chassis, which begs the question, ‘Is Microsoft looking to rake tons of profit from its upcoming devices?’.
