There have been rumors that Microsoft’s new phone, the Surface Phone, will appear next year, although it hasn’t been officially confirmed. As it is a much anticipated device, the Surface Phone has been the talk of the world, with rumors that have been circulating for more than a year.
Last year, before the Microsoft event in October, it was believed that the Surface Phone would be launched at that time, but in the event it wasn’t a single mention about this device. More unconfirmed reports have been circulating that Surface Phone is bound to be released next year.
Surface Phone against iPhone
It is supposed that Microsoft will compete with Apple on the phone market after launching the Surface Phone. This is because, with leaked images from the patents that Microsoft applied for, came rumors that Microsoft will feature a foldable smartphone, the first one.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella did not admit that Surface Phone is in the making, but in an interview last year, had said that they’re trying to create an ultimate mobile phone which will be different than the smartphones which can be found today in the market. That’s why the public thinks that it’s going to be a foldable smartphone and if this is the case, iPhone will be at a disadvantage.
A Unique Mobile Device
Last year, CEO Satya Nadella said in an interview to the Australian Financial Review that Microsoft is in the phone market to provide unique mobile devices and does not mean to compete or be defined by the phone market.
There are a ton of questions which torment the public. Is the Surface Phone in the making? Will it be foldable? When will the device be announced or even released? What specs will it feature? For now we can only speculate and wait for Microsoft to officially confirm its existence.
