Microsoft has created itself as a consistent hardware player with the perfection of the Surface line, that includes some innovative ideas with the new Surface Studio. And it has made remarkable strides with its apps on Android and iOS in recent years, with some of the most famous productivity apps in both stores.
It's highly likely that the Microsoft Surface Phone will come powered by Qualcomm's brand-new Snapdragon 835 chipset. The new chip is set to come out on smartphones early next year and is a direct series to the top-end Snapdragon 820 and 821 chips, which will and has featured in Samsung Galaxy S8, OnePlus 3T, and Google Pixel phones. Many believed it could also have a whopping 6GB of RAM.
The Surface Phone is anticipated to sport a 20-megapixel rear and 8 mp for the front with a Carl Zeiss lens and dual camera. We would expect big things from the Surface Phone camera. Starting with Apple, LG, and also Huawei have all shipped phones with dual-camera configurations, and Samsung is anticipated to follow suit in 2017. So Microsoft is more likely as anyone to utilize similar technology.
Will Support ARM Chipset And The Emulated Desktop Apps To Turn It Into A PC
The Surface Phone would support Win32 apps which allow users to run legacy Windows program that they run on their PCs. The availability of Win32 apps on the Phone would boost Android and iOS users to buy the Windows phone. Tech enthusiasts believe that the Surface Phone could get an edge over iPhone and Android devices if it comes with Win32 apps support. A device in your pocket that can indeed take the place of your full PC with support for the same software that you can able to use on a laptop or desktop would seem to fit the bill.
Well, it would seem that the Surface Phone will be a high-end smartphone that's possibly targetted at providing very specific value to the business market. Serving as a crown-of-light device for Microsoft's long-term mobile strategy or some mix of both.
