Superman and Tesla Lumia smartphones said to have surfaced in internal Microsoft meeting

Two more smartphones may launch from Microsoft's phone division in the near future, according to a report. Two Windows Phone devices were allegedly revealed during an internal meeting chaired by Microsoft devices head Stephen Elop, with one smartphone described as a "selfie" device with a five-megapixel front-facing camera sensor above a 4.7-inch display.

Sources of The Verge claim a video teaser of the smartphone was shown at the meeting, which is believed to be previously codenamed as "Superman." Aside from the screen size and the higher-resolution front camera, little else is known about the device, though it is touted to have mid-range specifications, and is likely to be released before the end of this year.

A second device was also revealed, with the codename "Tesla." Suggested to be an "affordable high-end phone," it will apparently have a high-resolution PureView camera on the back, and could be a replacement for the Lumia 720, though sources claim it bears a resemblance to a thinner Lumia 930.

While dates were not discussed, it is implied that both the Superman and Tesla smartphones will be launching soon, along with "other high-end products."
