According to credible Windows website, Dr.Windows, the new surface phone will embrace some of the top features of erstwhile Lumia along with new exciting features. It is believed that the surface phone is being built by Microsoft in collaboration with HP.
Microsoft Surface Phone may come back strongly with its powerful specs and features to lure customers into its smartphones business. As per Yibada, It is to be packed with a fingerprint scanner on the screen rather than the home button, which is vogue with other brands.
Further, the Surface phone may be embedded with Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor (again unheard in any brand), supported by a RAM of 8GB and stylus. Presumably, the stylus will be powered by its own battery, unlike the Surface book that charges stylus when it connected to the magnetic dock.
In October 2016, Microsoft has announced the launch of Surface studio and Surface Book i7 into the family during the release of Windows 10 event. This further strengthens the rumors that Microsoft is planning something big next year.
