Microsoft Surface Rumors: Surface Phone Will Have Snapdragon 835 And 6GB RAM
There is yet an official announcement from Microsoft regarding the long-rumored Surface Phone but that hasn't stopped leaks from surfacing.
The latest buzz about the supposed Surface Phone is that it will come with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor which was just released last Nov. 17.
According to the rumor, Microsoft is actually developing two smartphones and that one will have 6GB of RAM while the other will have 4GB.
The latest round of rumors was sparked by a post on the Nokia Power User website. A week before the post, Satya Nadella of Microsoft mentioned in an interview with Australian Financial Review that the company "missed the mobile boom".
Nadella also said that despite the crowded smartphone market, there is still room for Microsoft as long as it comes up with something unique.
"We will continue to be in the phone market, not as defined by today's market leaders, but by what is that we can uniquely do in what is most ultimate mobile device," according to the CEO of Microsoft.
While Nadella did not specifically say that Microsoft is working on a new smartphone, he did signify that the company could make one if it wanted to.
According to the Nokia Power User post, the two Surface Phones, which will both run on Snapdragon 835, will support Quick charging 4.0 and 64-bit Windows 10 Mobile architecture.
The 6GB Surface Phone reportedly can already run x86 apps in the Continuum mode while the 4GB will not. Both phones will probably have a 5.5-inch QHD display.
Rumors prior to this new one indicated that the Surface Phone will feature Surface laptop accessories.
The Surface Phone was supposed to be launched sometime in the first or second quarter of next year but with the unveiling of the Surface Studio in October and a possible release date of December, those estimates are now likely improbable.
The Surface Phone will now be launched in the latter part of 2017, according to the latest round of rumors.
