What's The Story So Far — Microsoft Surface Phone

Instead, the smartphone will bring in a new way of communication, and the device will be more of an ultra-mobile PC with all smartphone capabilities.

Although the Surface Phone might represent a huge leap for the company, this delay clearly represents great news for Apple and Samsung, considering that both giants are expecting to increase its relevance and revenues with these flagships, in a moment where the Chinese smartphones are finally coming to the USA market.

Reports about Microsoft restructuring its smartphone business, cutting a considerable number of jobs and alliance with Windows and Devices triggered speculations about a possible Microsoft Surface Phone among tech buffs. Microsoft is rumoured to be developing three variants of the tech wonder. One will be targeted at the consumers while the other two at business professionals and enterprises. The device will also probably feature the Kickstand concept. The Surface Phone could sport a 5.5-inch HD display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. The Microsoft Surface Phone displays will likely have liquid cooling technology, of which little is known. It is believed to come with either the Snapdragon 835 processor or Intel's 14nm Kaby Lake CPU. The 64GB internal storage option may have a 4GB RAM and the 128GB variant a 6GB RAM.

The Microsoft Surface Phone 2017 is said to feature a Quick Charge 4.0 to provide a 5 hours of battery life from 5 minutes of charging.

The Surface Phone will be equipped with a fingerprint scanner and may also offer support for a stylus, as well as keyboard cover like the Surface Pro.

The smartphone is likely to have a 21MP primary camera and an 8MP secondary camera.

Despite the leaked patents, there is no word on when we can expect to see this Intel tablet.

If everything ends up being the truth, the Microsoft Surface Phone will worth the waiting, considering that these details reveal that the mobile device might be one of the greatest ever made. While earlier reports had claimed a Q1 release, there is no concrete evidence of backing this claim. Naturally, given the fact that it will be launch in 2018, there would probably appear new rumors suggesting new specs and features, considering that both Apple and Samsung are expected to release a new flagship next year. The sound of detachable display alone is enough to tell us that Intel is going after the market that the Surface and Surface Pro lines have established.
