A fresh tweet from prolific tipster @evleaks confirms that Microsoft's upcoming 'Cityman' and 'Talkman' smartphones will carry the Lumia 950 brand name rather than the Lumia 940 moniker that was reported earlier by several news sources. It is further ascertained that both these smartphones would run Windows 10 Mobile out of the box.

Citing unnamed sources, prolific tipster Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) has tweeted the following message on the branding of Microsoft's forthcoming Windows 10 smartphones:
