Microsoft Lumia 950, 950 XL to feature iris scanner and wireless charging

Going by the reports over the web and the rumors surrounding it, it is much likely that Microsoft is working on its Flagship device Lumia 950 and 950XL which is to feature iris scanner and wireless charging. 

These two handsets, Lumia 950 code named Talkman and Lumia 950 XL code named Cityman were earlier expected to release at the IFA event in September but the latest update says that Microsoft may eventually release these two handsets in an altogether different event for a proper coverage which these two Windows Flagship handsets may not attract in the IFA event amidst various announcements.

I believe our participation in the phone segment by itself, so Windows phones and Lumia phones being there is important and that's why we picked the three areas where we have differentiation and we're going to focus on it. We're going to have great flagship phones for Windows fans. That's actually a segment we don't today have good devices and we hope to change that with Windows 10.

The specification Lumia 950 may feature includes a 5.2 inch display screen with a resolution of 2560x1440. It will have a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor with a 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. It will have a 20-megapixel primary camera and a 5-megapixel secondary camera and a 3000 mAh battery. 

Lumia 950 XL will feature almost the same specifications with a larger screen of 5.7 inch and an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor. It may also feature a 3300mAh battery better than Lumia 950.
The Unique Selling Point USP for both of these smartphones along with its high-end specification will include iris Infrared scanner and Qi wireless charging. 

What's your point of view on these two smartphones? Will they be able to grasp a market share from the Apple's iPhone and other android devices? Or will it mark an end to the Windows Phone in the smartphone sections? Share your opinion in the comment section.
