#SurfacePhone #WindowsPhone – Microsoft Surface phone release date news, specs update: Smartphone to launch in 2017 with innovative new features : After a no-show at the October event, Microsoft Surface Phone is now expected to be launched in 2017. The smartphone is anticipated to come with innovative new features such as fingerprint readers and proximity sensors.
A Mobile & Apps report says though there has been no confirmation from Microsoft about the release date of its much anticipated Surface Phone, the device is expected to arrive in 2017. The reason for the anticipated Surface phone lineup release is that Microsoft has acquired the domain name of surfacephone.com.
Rumors are rife that the corporate vice president for Surface Computing at Microsoft Corporation ? Panos Panay ? and his team are working on a smartphone that has an aluminum and magnesium structure, which will replace the Lumia lineup.
As far as Surface Phone specs and features are concerned, the anticipated lineup is rumored to have new features such as a fingerprint reader, compass, proximity sensor, barometer, and a 20MP Carl Zeiss rear camera.
It will reportedly also come equipped with the Intel Atom X3 processor, a 5.5 inch Active-Matrix Organic Light-emitting Diode display. A USB port and liquid cooling technology are also expected as the likely features of the new Surface phones. The new Surface phones will have variety in terms of RAM, ranging from 3 GB to 8 GB, with additional 512 GB storage.
At the Microsoft October 2016 Event, the company made no mention of the Surface phones. Microsoft’s executive vice president of Windows and Devices ? Terry Myerson ? was asked why they are focusing on advancing the Windows 10 Mobile during an interview with ZDnet.
“Technically, there are really two things that are unique about Windows Mobile. One is cellular connectivity and the other one is the ARM processors that are there,” Myerson replied. “So we’re going to continue to invest in ARM and cellular.
And while I’m not saying what type of device, I think we’ll see devices there, Windows devices that use ARM chips. I think we’ll see devices that have cellular connectivity,” said Myerson. Source: delhidailynews
