Microsoft Corporation is building a Surface Phone – that’s no longer a secret in spite of efforts to keep it quiet. Rumors, leaks, and quickly deleted tweets among a host of other clues have shown that a Surface Phone is in the works. However, the rumor mill is divided on the physical appearance of the device. The folks at “Behance” have submitted that the Phone will be bold while being Enterprise-friendly at the same time.
Meet the radically “Bold” Surface Phone concept
Bartlomiej Tarnowski from Poland has uploaded his Microsoft Surface Phone concept on the design site Behance. The Surface Phone concept design is probably the boldest of the concepts designs available now. Apple might be forced to go back to the drawing board with its iPhone 8 if Microsoft actually adopts such a bold design for the Surface Phone.
Bartlomiej’s concept design suggests that the device should sport a Cyan back cover. The device also sports impressive looking speakers on the top and bottom of the device and a 3.5mm jack to attract the audiophiles that Apple offended with the removal of the headphone jack.
The concept also suggests that the Phone can function like a mini-tablet in landscape mode and it has a hinge support kickstand so that the Touch Cover can double as a keyboard. The concept also shows a Surface pen in Cyan.
Another designer on Behance, Nadir Aslam from Germany posits that Keyboard support and Surface Pen support is one of the features that will set the Surface Phone apart from the iPhone. He also submits that Microsoft will be able to sell the gadget to the Enterprise market because of the productivity packed into the device. The most interesting feature that could sell the Surface Phone to the Enterprise market is its potential ability to replace your laptop.
The Surface Phone will have a powerful processor and a Micro-HDMI port with which you can connect the smartphone to any screen. Once you connect the Phone to a monitor, you can expect the full Windows 10 experience powered by its innovative processor. The Cover Touch serves as a Keyboard while the screen of the device will serve as a 10-point multitouch trackpad.
The Surface Phone will be “Insanely Great”
Many people have submitted that Microsoft’s Surface Phone will sport a body made from the same premium silver-magnesium allow used in the Surface Book. Others have submitted that the smartphone might debut an aluminum body similar to what Apple uses in its iPhones.
The rumored specs of the Surface Phone have created buzz and hype about the device and the Phone would beat Apple’s iPhone 7 and even the 2017 iPhone 8 hands down in specs benchmarking. The rumor mill seems to have unanimously agreed that the smartphone will sport a 20MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss lens. The leaks also suggest that the device will have three models sporting 4GB RAM with 32GB storage, 6GD RAM with 64GB storage , and 8GB RAM with 128GB storage.
The Surface Phone might also run Snapdragon 821 SoC and Windows 10 Redstone operating system with support for legacy Win32 apps.
