This is how the canceled Lumia 960 from Microsoft might have looked like | UPD: New images appear online

27 June 2017 5

Microsoft had halted the manufacture of their Lumia devices ages ago looking at how they can’t compete in a market which is dominated by Android and iOS. At some point in time, Microsoft did try to make amends by designing a successor to one of their well sold previous flagships and as the photo surfaces online, it does look like Microsoft was actually working on a device codenamed the Northstar.

From what it looks like, Microsoft appeared to be working on the successor of its Lumia 950 which seems to have an aluminum unibody design with a display panel similar to its predecessor. The device was speculated to be running the then latest Snapdragon 820 with a Quad-HD screen to make it look presentable.

Though we can’t see anything like this happening in future of the company, we do hear speculations regarding a revamped lineup of smartphones under its Surface branding which could be something to look forward to.

Update: 27th June, 2017

Fresh new images of the prototype flagship have surface online today, giving us a better look at what the cancelled phone might have looked like. And must we say, it is quite a sight to behold!
