#Microsoft #SurfacePhone – Microsoft Surface Phone release date, specs news: Is the Surface Phone coming soon? : Microsoft is said to be all set to make a big bet on its Surface Phone so as to return to the mobile market with a bang. The Redmond-based tech giant has not been able to do any wonders with its recent mobile releases.
Emboldened by the great reception its Surface devices got, now, Microsoft is reportedly planning to launch its Surface Phone to recreate the Surface magic in the mobile phone world too. Microsoft Surface Phone is rumored to get a release date in the first half of 2017.
The reason behind the late release of Microsoft’s newest smartphone could be related to its pending two major Windows 10 updates. Microsoft is expected to release Redstone 2 as its newest operating system update, which may help boost the Surface Phone.
Coming to Surface Phone price, the new phone might be sold at $699 for an entry-level model and $1,100 for the top-end model, claim recent reports. The device is said to come in three variants with changes in its base memory and storage capacity, ranging from 32 to 500 GB.
As fas as Microsoft Surface Phone specs and features are concerned, the new smartphone is rumored to have a 5.7-inch display, keyboard flip case and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 830 processor which definitely will give the phone its much needed speed.
A 21-megapixel rear camera and a USB Type-C port is also said to be part of the smartphone’s features. Microsoft is likely to keep a headphone jack for its upcoming device unlike Apple. Microsoft’s Surface Phone will probably have a new security feature if we go by company’s latest patent for a fingerprint scanner.
The device will likely come fitted with the scanner in its front glass, which indicates that the screen of the phone will serve as its sensor, reports TechRadar. However, there is still no official confirmation regarding the release date and features of the Surface Phone. Source: delhidailynews
