Although the alleged Surface Phone failed to make an appearance at the Microsoft event last october 26, it doesn't mean that the device is not in existence at all. A report from HNGN suggests that the software giant is planning to launch the new phones under the Surface branding early 2017.

As stated earlier, Microsoft is working on a new Windows 10 smartphone and it looks like this smartphone is the Surface phone.

But this, too, was a bit of a surprise for Microsoft observers considering that it was widely believed that the tech company would rather wait for the seventh-generation Intel Kaby Lake chipset before it would make an announcement.

Microsoft Surface Phones is once again expected to come with a brilliant camera feature like their Lumia counterpart. This is partly due to the fact that many apps are incompatible with the Windows Mobile operating system (OS), and it thus creates an unsatisfactory experience with owners who wants to enjoy famous apps that are easily available to Android and iOS users.

The devices shall feature 16GB of RAM, a rear-facing 16-megapixel camera, and an 8-megapixel front-facing snapper.

MSPowerUser previously featured an alleged leak of the Microsoft Surface Phone specifications and features. To add to this suspicion, Microsoft has neither confirmed nor denied any of the rumors spreading about the Surface Phone 2016.

In March 2016, Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President of the Windows and Devices Group at Microsoft, stated that they are fully committed to the Microsoft Surface Phone, although mobile phones are not the company's focus this year. Obviously, Microsoft will be focused on selling the updated version of the original Surface Book right before unveiling its potential successor.

Additionally, a Microsoft Surface Watch, or whatever it'd be called, can also help Microsoft compete against the likes of Apple, whose Watch is already leading the wearables market, together with Fitbit.

But the same rumors are also consistent in saying that Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be a lot better than the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 although based on the supposed leaked design of the upcoming device, the changes do not appear to be that much, externally that is.
