Surface Phone Is Not A Windows Phone, Here's The Latest News, Release Date And Specs Rumors
Back in 2015, Microsoft unveiled is Lumina phones where Windows 10 Mobile operating system was introduced. That happening was just temporary and based on the recent earnings' call from Microsoft, the Windows Phone is not a device that the firm will be investing any time. In fact, the Surface Phone is one of the many long-awaited Microsoft devices and is said to replace the old Microsoft's mobile.
Surface Phone vs Windows Phone
Microsoft's revenue on Windows Phone declined from $735 to $730 million prior the quarter. This means that the old mobile phone revenue was a mere $5 million deficit. Because of this, Microsoft is not planning not to continue anymore the production of Windows Phone and just focus on the Surface Phone. According to Forbes, Microsoft intends on continuing to support the Surface line into the marketplace, and that includes the Surface Phone.
The rate of decline on the surface Phone is expected to be much more moderate compared to Windows Phone. This is not because it is more modern and attractive, but because some people are still using tablets instead of mobile phones. The upcoming Surface Phone could stand to benefit Microsoft from a bit of a price break though. This may be as pricey as tablets or phablets once it hits the market.

While the official release date of Surface Phone is scarce, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has confirmed that the firm has plans for a smartphone. "We will continue to be in the phone market not as defined by today's market leaders," Nadella said.
According to The Christian Post, the Surface Phone might come running Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor. Its prototype was reportedly running 6 GB RAM while others said it will come with 4 GB RAM.
