Microsoft Surface Phone May Have Delayed Surface Book

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) could be launching the Surface Phone and the Surface Pro 5 together early next year, according to recent reports. In the event that this turns out to be true, pundits expect that Microsoft's share in the mobile phone market will improve as the main reason why the Lumia line it acquired from Nokia got a poor response from the consumers is the lack of apps that its Windows OS can run. The latter has just proven to be too few when compared to the masses on Android and iOS. At this point, it is still to early to tell, but GSM Arena is taking Nadella's statement as a clear sign that Microsoft Surface Phone is already being developed. Even though the gadget has been praised by many, fans still expected Microsoft to release the Surface Book 2 during the October event.

Microsoft Surface Phone has also been tipped to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset.

Eve, a Finnish manufacturer, has developed Eve V, a team that aims to compete with the 2016 Microsoft Surface Pro 4. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella expressed that the latest phone model that the company will be launching is said to be the "ultimate mobile device". "We will continue to be in the phone market not as defined by today's market leaders, but by what it is that we can uniquely do in what is the most ultimate mobile device".

Microsoft's Surface lineup is a tough competitor to Apple's MacBook lineup and this is even getting better this Black Friday. This company jumped into the 2 in 1 factor with Microsoft surface three years ago. Moreover, this product may support full versions of Windows software on an ARM processor.

Release date is based on two events- Second major update to Windows 10 was delayed and the launch of Intel's 14-nanometer Kaby Lake processor. Now, the Microsoft is trying its own hands at building hardware after the success of its Surface lineup of devices.

While the rumors attached to the Surface Phone are nothing short of exciting, unfortunately, they are nothing more than unconfirmed pieces of information at this point in time.
