With the Surface Studio now out in the open, there is still one thing that Microsoft still continues as a mystery – the Surface Phone.
Microsoft To Release A New Smartphone
Just recently, Satya Nadella of Microsoft has already somewhat confirmed that they are in the works to create the “ultimate mobile device”.
Nadella mentioned in an AFR interview that Microsoft will continue its existence in the smartphone industry but not as defined by the current trend.
However, what is unknown at this point is whether or not it will be the Surface Phone and whether or not it will hit the market this 2017.
Surface Phone Rumors
As per a GSM Arena report, the Surface Phone could be made official 2017, at least based on a supplier-based rumor. Apparently, it was said that Pegatron, a known smartphone supplier, is about to start the production of the alleged Surface Phone.
This rumor actually lines up with past news saying that the anticipated Windows phone is up for a 2017 release.
There are rumors saying that the Surface Phone will be powered by an Intel chip but there is also news saying that it will use a Snapdragon 835 processor instead.
