Microsoft Surface Phone 2016 release date made some noise the past month about its launch at IFA 2016. There have been rumors that the launch is moved next month and the Surface Phone could be released in 2017.

Microsoft Surface Phone was supposed to be Microsoft's ticket to making a comeback in the smartphone industry. Years ago, Microsoft launched the Lumia series but it didn't appeal that much to consumers. The Surface Phone was expected to replace the Lumia 950 after its release, but it might not even happen this year.

No Surface Phone Announcement in IFA 2016

Just last month, Microsoft declared their plans to launch at IFA 2016 in September. Yet, there are rumors circulating that the Microsoft Surface Phone 2016 release date was just a rumor and it's not true. Microsoft Fans waiting for the Surface Phone will be devastated if they don't follow through this month.

According to the Inquistr, the Microsoft Surface Phone will launch at IFA 2016 in Berlin and it is going on sale on October. The Microsoft Surface Phone will be the second generation of Microsoft's smartphone series and it will replace the Lumia 950.

In addition to that good news about the Surface Phone, Microsoft is going to release three different variants of their latest flagship. The Surface Phone will have a 3GB RAM and a total storage of 32GB, another one will come with 128GB storage with a 6GB RAM and it's largest would be equipped with a 500GB storage and 8GB RAM.   

Everyone is stoked to find out what the Microsoft Surface Phone has to offer. Sources suggest that the Lumia 950 replacement will be encased in an aluminum and magnesium body. The Microsoft Surface Phone will likely have a 5.7-inch AMOLED Display, a 21 MP primary camera from Carl Zeiss, a Windows 10 operating system and it will be equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821 or the Apollo Lake 64-bit Intel processor.

Microsoft's Surface Phone seems like a very promising piece of technology. You have the chance to find out about it in person at the best consumer electronics trade show in Berlin, IFA 2016.
