Microsoft Corporation will reportedly announce its next-gen smartphone (Surface Phone) soon while Alphabet’s Google revealed its much-awaited phone yesterday. The Google Pixel and Microsoft Surface Phones are both positioned to shake the smartphone market up, and compete with the iPhone and other popular smartphones.
Both the companies have remained very mysterious regarding their next-gen flagship smartphones, however, a report from The Country Caller have tried building a certain picture in respect to these two smartphone. Here is short and quick review of the Google Pixel and Microsoft Surface Phone:
With the Pixel models, the search giant is trying to unify its upcoming devices. This is why the search giant has named its next-gen smartphone handsets as Pixel and Pixel XL, rather than using a more traditional ‘Nexus’ naming policy. In addition, the Pixel and Pixel XL incorporate similar specifications unlike the current lineup of Nexus smartphone devices. But, the costlier Pixel XL incorporate a significantly bigger display in comparison to the smaller one.
The smaller Google Pixel comes with a modest 5.0-inch display screen while the larger Pixel XL spots a 5.5-inch display. Both the Pixel smartphone sport AMOLED display panels, representing a significant lift over the technology incorporated in the current-gen Nexus handsets. Both the phones will come pre-installed with the upcoming Android Nougat, thus ensuring the optimal performance for the upcoming devices.
Pixel phones will use the USB-C charging port, and will come with 4GB RAM, 12 12MP camera on the back and 8MP on the front. Google has started taking pre-orders for the device in Canada, Australia, Germany, UK and the US. It will be shipped to the buyers and the stores on October 20.
Microsoft Surface Phone
Microsoft Corporation knows that it does not afford more mistakes in the smartphone market especially after the complete failure of its Windows Phones. The Redmond-based firm is all ready to roll out three different models of its Surface phones, according to numerous reliable sites. The three different models of the Surface Phone will include a high-end model – featuring a jaw-dropping 500GB of internal storage and 8GB RAM, a mid-range model – featuring 128GB internal storage and 6GB RAM and an entry level model – featuring 32GB internal storage and 4GB RAM.
All the three different models of the Surface Phone are believed to sport a 5.7-inch AMOLED display. This should allow the upcoming devices to challenge and compete with the best smartphone displays available in the market worldwide. In addition, the devices are expected to arrive pre-installed with the most recent Windows 10 Redstone OS. This should further push forward the performance of the smartphone devices. Moreover, many are convinced that Microsoft Corporation will incorporate the next-gen QUALCOMM Snapdragon processing chipsets.
