It’s now official that Microsoft will no longer release any kind of support for Windows Phone, and Windows 10 Mobile might soon join these lines. However, the company will not disappear completely from the mobile market. It has already released the concept for an upcoming device, known under several names, including Surface Phone, Cellular PC, or Surface Mobile.
Several rumors indicate a Microsoft Surface Phone is approaching
There have been many leaks and rumors so far, but the official information is still scarce. Therefore, we don’t have a complete picture of how the Surface Phone might look like, but we can try to put all the pieces together and at least get a preview.
So far, people have been asking a few questions regarding the upcoming device. They are wondering if Microsoft already has a prototype ready for the Surface Phone, and how this prototype might work. Will it run a PC-like Windows 10, or the already existing Windows 10 Mobile? However, the most bugging of questions is the date when the new device will be released, or at least a list of all its specs and features.
When will the new device be released?
So far, rumors indicated of a so-called “cellular PC” running Windows 10 on ARM, and several devices which were testing a new OS for mobile. Some suppliers even claimed the device will definitely be called Surface Phone. This is good to know, but the main piece of information we ask for is a release date.
Most probably, the device is undergoing testing as we speak. This means that it should take between 6 and 18 months to launch. Until the Surface Phone, or whatever it will be called, gets on the market, there will surely be more leaks and rumors to satisfy our unending curiosity.
