Microsoft Surface Phone Prototype Runs Snapdragon 835, Supports x86 Apps

However, there are contradicting reports that the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be released next year, which is the subject of rumors in the past. And now there are rumors about the company producing a new surface phone. And with the use of the Surface pen, users will be able to sketch and doodle on the Microsoft Surface Studio.

2017 will see Microsoft release what CEO Satya Nadella describes as "the ultimate mobile device". Currently, the hardware inside a smartphone is not strong enough to be able to really replace a laptop or a PC, but technology is advancing very fast and we're nearly there.

Microsoft Corporate Vice President Panos Panay introduces a new tablet titled the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 at a media event for new Microsoft products on October 6, 2015 in New York City.

In addition to shipping the desktop, Microsoft will be offering the Surface Studio customers a dedicated phone line they can call to get help with any problems they could potentially encounter with the new PC.

In the highly competitive electronic gadget market, imitation may indeed be the highest form of flattery as numerous brands do usually copy other more successful manufacturers in the hopes of becoming a cheaper or more powerful alternative to the said brand. This could be a more affordable version of the phone for consumers, but without x86 support, it would be very similar to the existing Windows phones.

"We will continue to be in the phone market not as defined by today's market leaders, but by what it is that we can uniquely do in what is the most ultimate mobile device. Therefore, we stopped doing things that were me-too and started doing things, even if they are today very sub-scale, to be very focused on a specific set of customers who need a specific set of capabilities that are differentiated and that we can do a good job of", Nadella stated. "The Surface Phone", says columnist Ewan Spence.

The report also suggests a 5.5-inch display size for one or possibly two Surface Phone devices, while "laptop accessories" (think keyboards and a stylus) have also been mooted, though nothing seems set in stone just yet.

In terms of resolution, Microsoft has already outperformed with razor sharp 267 ppi in its Surface Pro 4.

In 2012, Microsoft launched the Microsoft Surface, a line of tablet computers.
