Although there´s many mobile devices that customers are expecting this year, one of the most highly-anticipated is definitely the Microsoft Surface Phone, since several rumors and information suggest not only that this would be a groundbreaking flagship, but also the smartphone that will change the company´s history in the phone business. However, even when it has been speculated that the Surface Phone might be launched this year, a new report shows that this will actually happen in 2018, which represent bad news for those who wanted to see this mysterious smartphone in the coming months.
The Surface Phone Won´t Be Able To Compete Against The iPhone 8
Recently, the tech world was glad to know that this mobile device will actually see the light since Microsoft´s CEO Satya Nadella explained confirmed that the company was developing the Surface Phone. However, it has been known that the tech giant would probably announce the next-gen flagship before the end of 2017, which means that it would be officially launched next year, meaning that a legendary fight between this mobile device and the iPhone 8 or the Galaxy S8 won´t happen.
Of course, this represents another huge disappointing for those who were keen to see the Surface Phone this year, considering that it was initially believed that this mobile device would actually be announced in mid-2016, but this didn't happen. Apparently, the reason for this huge delay is that the company needs a long period to build the smartphone with the greatest specs and features, considering that Microsoft is betting a lot in this product in order to make a huge hit in the market and be finally able to compete against the major players in this business, which is probably the only one in the tech world where this tech giant doesn't have an important position.
This Delay Represent Great News For Apple And Samsung
Although the Surface Phone might represent a huge leap for the company, this delay clearly represents great news for Apple and Samsung, considering that both giants are expecting to increase its relevance and revenues with these flagships, in a moment where the Chinese smartphones are finally coming to the U.S. market. And of course, the absence of a product that was meant to be a ferocious competitor is something that will definitely give the Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 8 more chances to achieve the highest popularity this year.
Apparently, the Surface Phone will have similar specs as the Lumia XL, wearing a 5.5-inch display touchscreen with quad HD resolution and 1440 by 2560 pixel, the almighty Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with Quick Charge 4.0, 8 GB of RAM with 512GB of internal storage, and the Windows 10 Mobile Redstone 3 as the operating system, which will clearly blow customers´ mind.
If everything ends up being the truth, the Microsoft Surface Phone will worth the waiting, considering that these details reveal that the mobile device might be one of the greatest ever made. Naturally, given the fact that it will be launch in 2018, there would probably appear new rumors suggesting new specs and features, considering that both Apple and Samsung are expected to release a new flagship next year.
