Microsoft Surface Phone is Secretly being Manufactured?; Samsung Galaxy S Killer Coming in Q4 2017 [RUMOR]
Bits of information about Microsoft Surface Phone has finally surfaced one by one.
Microsoft Surface Phone is currently being tested?
Taiwanese electronic corporation Pegatron is said to conduct tests on Surface Phone handset. For those unfamiliar with the company, it is the manufacturer who helps Apple crafting the iPhone components in highly secretive procedures, Bloomberg reported.
According to a local source, Pegatron has begun the trial production for Microsoft Surface Phone. The report corroborates Satya Nadella's statement about working on an ultimate mobile device that will make all Surface devices more connected. It indicates that the company's goal to bring business-centric phones into live, could be plausible.
The test reportedly includes more than one variant of Surface Phone, all rocking Snapdragon 835. There are two RAM options, 4 GB and 6 GB. According to the Forbes, the devices will support Continuum which allows them to be connected via HDMI port and open apps on the device.
Microsoft Surface Phone to be Galaxy S8 Competitor?
It's been rumored that Samsung Galaxy S8 and Xiaomi Mi 6 will be the devices sporting a Snapdragon 835 chip. As it will be built on Samsung's very-own 10-nanometer technology - many have assumed that Galaxy S8 will be the only smartphone to have the chipset under the hood in 2017.
However, Surface fans can expect a different appearance and probably performance as Microsoft is said to equip the device with a 5.7-inch screen and 20 MP rear shooter.
Microsoft Surface Phone might come out as a fairly unique device, unlike the rest as Nadella hints at a product that's not defined by the current market leaders, Trusted Reviews reported.
Microsoft Surface Phone Release Date Delayed?
The Redmond-based company does not confirm any leak or release date speculation but reports suggest that the Surface Phone might be introduced in Q4 2017. However, tech crowds doubt whether 2017 is the right time for a Surface Phone release and here is why.
