Right now, we've heard and read the words "Surface Phone" more often than actual smartphones that are coming in this year. The alleged new phone from Microsoft has been mentioned a ton of times online while the company has kept mum on the matters regarding it. While it's already very easy to assume that the Surface Phone is actually coming in anytime soon, fans can't really put in 100 percent of their trust on it as long as Microsoft does not acknowledge the said device.
Microsoft CEO Talks About Smartphone Plans
Microsoft is in no way selfish in sharing information on its future smartphone plans. However, the company never mentions the Surface Phone whenever they talk about its future plans. Yes, they intend to introduce new smartphones. However, no one's assured that one of them will be the long-rumored Surface Phone. What Microsoft points out is that it will continue to be present in the smartphone market. Whether or not there is a Surface Phone coming up, no one has confirmed.
What the company says is that their next smartphone will still be focused on differentiating itself from the rest. It will still focus on what it does best. This includes security, manageability, and PC-level greatness, as per an ONMSFT report. Although this still falls in line with what the Surface Phone is rumored to come with, Microsoft's failure to recognize its existence is still keeping the said phone from being a sure deal.
Microsoft Surface Phone Continues To Leak
The thing about the Surface Phone is that it continues to be leaked online. Huge waves of rumors surface online almost on a daily basis. This is why even though Microsoft is being quite serious in snubbing the topic that is the Surface Phone, the discussions about it still doesn't stop. One of the recent leaks regarding the Surface Phone talked about the device being prepped up for a trial production. It was said that ODM Pegatron, the same company responsible for the production of the Surface Studio, will also be responsible for the development of the rumored phone.
Additionally, a few days ago, a leaked image of the alleged Surface Phone has also surfaced online. This said image has supposedly appeared in China and it looks pretty much how you would expect a Surface Phone to look like. This image leak is quite a big deal especially since it came at a time when rumors about the Surface Phone are at its strongest point. Nevertheless, this image has easily been debunked by Phone Arena saying that the pictures can be a Lumia prototype from the past.
Chances That The Surface Phone Isn't Coming
With all these leaks that come and go, there's still a big chance that no Surface Phone is showing up soon. Even if the device does exist behind Microsoft's closed doors, it could still remain hidden from the public. The company might have purposely stayed away from confirming the existence of the Surface Phone for the sole reason that it's not ready yet and Microsoft doesn't want to promise something that they aren't a hundred percent sure will be ready for unveiling soon enough. Needless to say, these are just some of the possible angles to look at it and until Microsoft actually says that the Surface Phone is existing or non-existing, nothing is confirmed as of the moment.
