Despite there being no official confirmation about Microsoft Surface Phone from the Redmond-based tech giant, the device has managed to set the mobile community on fire. While Surface Phone leaks are coming in every now and then, the initial speculations about Surface Phone specs, features as well as 2017 release date have so far been very encouraging.
Going by rampant Surface Phone rumors, if the ‘ultimate’ smartphone finally launches this year, there is a good chance it might be the dark horse of the mobile industry.
Rumors about the Surface Phone have been floating around for a long time. Although official details and leaks about the device are almost nonexistent, the idea of a smartphone that could take on the iOS and Android juggernaut and possibly even beat them has captured the attention of mobile enthusiasts for a long time.
Currently, speculations about the Surface Phone indicate that it would truly be a revolutionary device, quite unlike anything on the market today, according to a TrustedReviews report. Interestingly, this particular notion has been fed by none other than Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella himself.
During an interview, the CEO stated that the tech giant is working on a mobile device, and while the Surface Phone was not specifically mentioned, Nadella was quick to point out that the company’s upcoming smartphone would be quite unique.
“We will continue to be in the phone market, not as defined by today’s market leaders, but by what it is that we can uniquely do in what is the most ultimate mobile device.”
There have been reports suggesting that the Microsoft Surface Phone would be released in three configurations — a Consumer Edition, a Business Edition, and a premium Enthusiast Edition. These three devices, rumored to feature similar aspects such as the screen’s size and overall design, would be aimed towards three particular demographics.
As far as Microsoft Surface Phone 2017 release date is concerned, the device, reportedly featuring Snapdragon 835 chip and 8GB RAM-512GB ROM, is rumored for release sometime this year, with most speculations stating that the device would be unveiled sometime during the first half of the year.
