Surface Phone leaked? For the love of Eros, let’s hope so!
Redmond, Wash. — Before the weekend started, one regional Microsoft account may have leaked some very good news about Microsoft phones.
According to the Twitter account Microsoft Australia (I don’t know why Microsoft is still maintaining regional accounts instead of merging them all to their global account in Redmond), the Surface Phone could be announced at their event in a few weeks.
The Daily Express, a UK publication, noted the image appears to include official Microsoft branding, shows a dark smartphone shape, flanked by Microsoft’s existing Surface Book laptop and Surface Pro 4 tablet device.
The Daily Express continued:
Rumours have been building of a launch event next month for the new device, which according to reports could feature a 5.7 inch touchscreen with 2K resolution, powered by a Snapdragon 830 processor, and sporting a 20 megapixel rear camera with a Carl Zeiss lens.
The Surface Phone could even be a hybrid device, with leaked images suggesting it will have a keyboard cover that allows users to type, similar to Microsoft’s Surface Pro devices.
Additionally, the device is expected to have at least an 8 megapixel front facing camera, 4k video capabilities and VoLTE.
As many other media outlets have posted, Microsoft is ending its Lumia line no later than December 31. Which means that the production of the Lumia 550, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL will end at that approximately 8 pm Vietnam time on that day.
We at Aiken Area Progressive hope this Surface Phone will come sooner rather than later.
