Nokia Lumia 930

It was speculated that the new devices will bring some interesting features that were not available in their predecessor, the Lumia 930 along with upgrades. However, the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL was launched instead.

Card Slot and Iris Scanner

The new Microsoft Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL are speculated to be coming several new and upgraded features. Among the most notable of these are a microSD card slot and an iris scanner.

One of the complaints some users had about the Lumia 930 is that it failed to provide means of adding extra storage to the 32GB inbuilt storage on the device. Microsoft is expected to oblige to buyers’ wish of having a microSD card slot on the new Lumia 940 devices.

Also, the new smartphones, especially the Microsoft Lumia 940 XL is rumoured to feature an iris scanner for improved device security through biometric authentication with an eye scan. This will be a significant leap in user protection if it turns out to be true.

About a year ago, it was rumoured that the Galaxy S5 will feature Iris scan, which later turned out to be false. Lets hope this one from Microsoft ends up being true.
