Microsoft Surface Phone and the Apple iPhone 7 are two devices that many users will want to get their hands on. However, we’re not sure if Microsoft is doing a good thing by competing with Apple and this might cost the American multinational technology company headquartered in Redmond, Washington, a lot.
Chris Capossela, the Chief Marketing Officer at Microsoft, said in an interview that the consumers will need to have more patience, as the company needs a bit more time in order to build the long-rumored Microsoft Surface Phone.
Capossela also added that the device will come with some powerful specifications and features and there will be many users who will want to get their hands on it. According to some recent rumors, the prototype model for the Microsoft Surface Phone is currently under work by the Surface Team.
The Microsoft Surface Pro tablet, which is actually a hybrid device that can be used as a tablet and as a laptop is now very popular across the world. The Microsoft Surface Phone is also expected to come with similar capabilities, as some rumors said that it will actually be a phablet device that will also feature a Surface Pen.
The Microsoft Surface Phone will run on Windows 10 Mobile OS and by using the Continuum feature, it will function as a PC when connected to a larger display. According WMPowerUser website, Microsoft will probably start supporting the Win32 desktop apps for Continuum.
We remind you that a smartphone that features an x86 processor is able to support Win32 applications and the upcoming Surface Phone is expected to feature an Intel Chipset with an x86 processor. With other words, the mentioned device will most likely support Win32 applications out of the box.
According to rumors the Surface Phone comes with a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, a primary camera of 21MP and a secondary camera of 8MP. The device is expected to be released in three storage variants of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB and it will also support wireless charging and a microSD card slot.
