Microsoft’s Canceled McLaren Windows Phone Flagship Compared to iPhone 6

Microsoft was reportedly working on a new flagship smartphone dubbed “McLaren” that was supposed to replace the existing Lumia 1020. The company has, for whatever reason, decided to cancel that device. However, that hasn’t stopped images of the smartphone from cropping up.

Today, new images of McLaren, which was likely to follow in the footsteps of the Lumia 1020, have surfaced. The images show a bulky backside camera module, not unlike that found on the Lumia 1020, but according to The Verge, the phone was going to ship with a 20-megapixel camera instead of a super high-resolution shooter similar to what appeared on the Lumia 1020.

As you’ll note in the photos, it appears to be relatively similarly sized to the iPhone 6, though a bit bulkier. Specs reportedly include a 5-inch 1080p display and 2GB of RAM, and the focus of the device was set on 3D gesture technology, but The Verge said this device ultimately ended up becoming a canceled prototype.

Maybe we’ll see something similar launch later?
