#Microsoft #SurfacePhone – Microsoft Surface Phone News and Updates: Release Date Delayed Again? Business and Productivity Features Revealed: Undoubtedly one of the most anticipated phone launches of the year, Microsoft is expected to unveil the new Surface Phones. However, with no confirmed release dates, excited fans keep on guessing when they could get their hands on the new device.
Release Date Delayed Again
Earlier reports have speculated that the Surface Phones will be released along with the Surface Pro 5 and the new desktop All in One from Microsoft. Microsoft is set to hold an event this month, with various tech blogs and fans predicting the launch of these devices.
However, rumors have been increasing that the Surface Phones would not be launching together with the other Surface devices. This may largely be due to the fact that Intel has pulled out indefinitely from the mobile market. With Microsoft intending to incorporate Intel Kaby Lake chipsets in the Surface Phones, the company may be facing a challenge due to the pull out.
The earliest release date predicted for the Surface Phones is set sometime in 2017. This would make logical sense as it would give Microsoft enough time to acquire new chipset partnerships. This could also give Intel enough leeway to finish the Redstone processor in time for the release.
Business and Productivity
While the chipset is currently the subject of much controversy, other details and specifications of the Surface Phones have been rounding up the web. First off is the three variant scheme to be followed by Microsoft. There would be a basic model and a business model. The other variant still does not have any confirmed details.
