Microsoft Surface Phone Will Officially Launch In 2018

Microsoft Surface Phone Will Officially Launch In 2018

Many thought that the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be launched in October 2016. After all, OS updates in the past were normally done with the release of the Surface Pro devices.

As for the design, some sources say that the Surface Phone would look like a mini-Surface Pro tablet with a squared metallic design.

Surface Pro fans can only hope so.

Although the Surface Phone might represent a huge leap for the company, this delay clearly represents great news for Apple and Samsung, considering that both giants are expecting to increase its relevance and revenues with these flagships, in a moment where the Chinese smartphones are finally coming to the US market.

The new SP5 is expected to carry the latest Intel's Kaby Lake processors with 16 GB of RAM.

According to Smart Stock News, Microsoft might be taking its time in revealing a Surface Phone to ensure that it is going to meet - or possibly exceed - the market's expectations. This way, they can give space for the incoming device's latest version.

Microsoft's Surface product lineup is turning out to be a huge success. After all, most of the Redmond-based giant's competitors have largely focused on hybrid devices that are essentially laptops with detachable screens.

In December of the previous year, many have believed that the "leaked" photo of a Windows 10 phone was the upcoming Surface Phone. For now, it is hard to tell whether Intel does want to produce a hybrid with a curved display or it's just toying with the idea. In a lot of ways, this makes ideal sense, since the main weakness of the SP5's predecessor, the Surface Pro 4, was its absence of cellular support.

There is no doubt that Microsoft and Intel have had some fond memories together, however, the two are set to be the biggest rivals in the 2-in-1 tablet industry after it emerged that Intel has just patented a device that has a lot in common with the upcoming Microsoft Surface Pro 5. This claim shouldn't be waved off so soon as Microsoft had even stated that one of the core reasons for the delay was so that the software could be compatible with "new surface devices". As a result, it is one of the highly anticipated devices for 2017.

Microsoft is rumored to unveil the Surface Pro 5 at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 later this month.
