Microsoft’s new Lumia phones, the Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL, and more recently the Lumia 550 have been the topic of speculation for weeks. Now, a leaked presentation that looks very Microsoft-y appears to have confirmed the rumors.

Slides posted to Forever Nokia Latin America’s Facebook page covered by WindowsStudio reveals what appears to be a Microsoft presentation, in Spanish, showing some of the features and specifications of all three new Lumia phones, plus the Continuum dock known as the Microsoft Display Dock that they will plug into. In addition, they show that some of the phones will include a version of Windows Hello that will scan your eye’s iris to identify you without a password.

One of the slide describes the target consumer of the phone as “everyone who wants to do more; enjoy their daily lives; and share with the people who matter most to them.”.

The new devices runs Windows 10, they are useful as your PC, the slides add. The slides don’t use the term ‘Windows 10 Mobile’ specifically.

The three new Lumia phones
According to the slides, here are the specifications of the new phones:

Lumia 950

Display: 5.2 inches, QuadHD
Processor: Qualcomm 6-core Snapdragon 808
Camera: 20MP PureView rear camera with optical image stabilization (OIS) and dual flash; 5MP HD front camera
Storage: 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage
Battery: 3,000 mAh, with rapid charging via USB-C

Lumia 950XL

Display: 5.7 inches, QuadHD
Processor: Qualcomm 8-core Snapdragon 810
Camera: 20MP PureViw rear camera with OIS and triple flash/5 Mpixel front camera
Storage: 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage

You can both connected to Microsoft Display Dock, a small box that appears to have USB and microUSB inputs and connects to an external display. The smartphone will also have a Bluetooth connection built-in. The idea, as Microsoft has described previously, is that the two phones will use the Continuum that let people use it as their small PCs, displaying Windows 10 universal apps like Excel across the entire screen real estate used by the widescreen monitor.

According to another slide, both the Lumia 950 and 950XL will employ iris recognition as a means of authentication but the 550 won’t have that. Windows Hello on some Windows 10 notebooks uses a special Intel depth camera to scan your face, logging you in without the need to enter a password or PIN. The version of Windows Hello used by Microsoft’s new flagship phones will look for the unique pattern of your iris to do the same.

Both phones have been rumored to work with the Surface Pen that accompanies the Surface tablets, but the slides don’t didn’t show that.

The Lumia 550, meanwhile, is a solidly mid- to low-end phone.
