MS Surface Phone

Expected to launch one year from now.

Surface Phone and huge Windows 10 Mobile Redstone 2 update slated for April 2017

Will it be too late? Or will it have ground breaking new features that it will finally make MS' phone platform a threat to Android and iPhone?

Personally, I think MS is serious with the mobile side. I mean what's the use of their big UWP project without the phone factor? Realistically, I believe MS goal now is to be like the Apple of mobile space. They might settle for 20% of the whole pie.

App wise MS still have a lot to catch up. Plus they have stopped the android windows bridge project for android apps to work on windows. Not sure what they are doing but in order for them to come back with a bang.. They need to have a break through. Android and iOS are so well established in terms of hardware and software so MS need to find its niche in this competitive market

Surface phone is closer than we think ?

Famed tech leaker Evan blass has leaked images of the mythical surface phone and apparently its closer to final product than we think



And a series of apparently real life photos?

Yeah, but I abit hesitant of large phablets, the 950xl was already too big for me already

One thing I am skeptical is that Evan blass mentioned about intel chip. As for as I remember , intel has ceased development of mobile grade processors and unless they are putting an actual i series chip inside, how can they solve the cooling and battery life issues?

False alarm, it seems the renders and pictures were based on a prev dell mini tablet that was designed to run the intel atom processor with early continuum like functionality. The project was cancelled once intel dropped the atom processors. Was too good to be true

(Update: 20 March 2017): A report from WCCFTech that cites a source from Reddit suggests that the Surface Phone will launch in late 2018 or 2019, rather than this year.
