Surface Phone: Microsoft Continue Surface Line-Up
With Snapdragon 830, 2k display and 20 MP rear camera to feature the coming Surface phone, it’s obvious Microsoft bets on productivity. Snapdragon 830 is rumored to be the Qualcomm next generation processor with 10 nm manufacturing process, a quad core Kryo CPU, clocked at 2.2GHz and LDDDR4X RAM.
According to the leak from China, the new processor will be able to support 8 GB of RAM – an unheard of capacity for cell phones.
No wonder, another leak from Baidu Chinese message board pictures Surface Phone propped in landscape orientation against a kickstand cover similar to that for Surface tablets. This may hint at unrivalled productivity of the much awaited portable, pitching it somewhere between Surface Pro 2-in-1 tablet and Surface Book.
The rumored screen diagonal size – 5.7 –also places the phone with phablets rather than phones. But with 2k resolution it’s unwise to make a smaller screen.
It’s unknown still, if it will be possible to plug the Surface Phone to a large display via Windows Dock Station as the HP X3 Elite cell phone, thus turning it into a desktop system, but it might inherit the connectivity from its Windows Surface ‘brothers’.
The release date also remains unknown. If Microsoft meets the expectations about this phone, it will be a serious pitch for Apple’s top place in the market.
