Despite Microsoft's uncertainty on whether to release a Surface Phone or not, reports about the mobile device have surfaced on the web for over a year now. Nonetheless, it is not a surprise that the tech giant could be working on a handset to revive its smartphone ecosystem.

Despite the lack of confirmation from Microsoft on whether the highly anticipated smartphone is really in its pipeline, the tech giant hints that it will be a breakthrough smartphone. Wherein, Microsoft's general manager for Surface, Ryan Gavin, stated that tech enthusiasts cannot expect the Surface Phone to look like the conventional mobile devices in the market today. It is important to note that this is not the first time for Microsoft people to tease about what tech fans can expect from the long-suspected Surface Phone, Business Insider reported.

There are designers around the world who have created concepts of the device, which gives tech enthusiasts a preview of what the Microsoft Surface Phone could look like. The concept of the Microsoft Surface Phone is mostly based on the existing anticipations and patents that surfaced in the last months, Deccan Chronicle reported.

This is in line with the photos of the Surface Phone concept published by Ian James Recto, which envisions the upcoming mobile device with a 20MP camera as well as a customizable button on the back that utilizes the tech company's logo. Although this Surface Phone concept still needs some refinements, it appears to be going into a completely different direction rather than the existing flagship smartphones in the market today.

In spite of that, Microsoft's unconventional smartphone may be called the Surface Note. It has been said that Microsoft's Surface Phone or Surface Note will be the first foldable mobile device to hit the market. Also, Microsoft's upcoming smartphone is said to boast a 5.5-inch AMOLED display, a 4GB of RAM as well as a 64GB of internal storage.
