Microsoft has been among some of the biggest names when it comes to the world of technology over the past several years. The company has been around the markets for over the past 40 years, and has been coming out with many major innovations over this period. Microsoft has now managed to come out with some major changes, and has been slowly moving into the hardware industry too. The company’s efforts in the mobile phone markets have not been going as well as they had originally planned it to, however, with the markets quite optimistic about the upcoming Surface Phone device, things look to smoothen down over the years.
Microsoft’s Surface Phone has been anticipated since a really long time, and the company has been anticipated to release this device since as early as July last year. However, nearly a year down the line, the company has never officially commented on the matter.
Recently, Microsoft’s Corporate VP of Windows Kevin Gallo has commented on the matter, saying that the next Windows 10 Mobile OS device would be involve ‘category innovating’. While he specifically did not name the Surface Phone, it is highly anticipated that this is the device he is referring to here. Kevil made these statements to The Register, “We’re really aligned to what we’ve done on the Windows desktop […] which is we’ll lead with some high end and category innovation like we’ve done with Surface, and OEMs will go and build the breadth of the catalog,” Gallo said in the report.
The device has been anticipated to come out into the markets in three variants, based on their RAM and storage space.
- A Basic version with 4GB of RAM along with 64GB of storage space,
- The Advanced version which features 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space,
- The Pro Variant, with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage space.
In addition to these specs and features, it has been widely anticipated that the Surface Phone would be releasing into the markets with the Snapdragon 830, which would be released by the January of 2017.
