The Right Name With The Wrong Design — Microsoft Surface Phone

And as the year is almost about to end, many rumors going online suggesting that the Microsoft Surface Phone will be unveiled during the IFA 2016. Amid these speculations doing rounds, some conflicting reports suggest that Microsoft will take the wraps off the Surface phone in October with their own press event, according to Vine Report.

It has been speculated that Microsoft will not release any of its hardware within the year as, allegedly, the company is still waiting for the arrival of the Intel Kaby Lake processor, which will be packed by some of its upcoming releases, such as the Surface Book 2, the Surface Pro 5, and the Surface Phone.

However, if a report coming from PC Advisor is to be believed, Microsoft hasn't yet confirmed if it is taking part in IFA 2016.

Everybody is excited about Microsoft's Surface Phone debut because this phone is going to feature a huge 5.7-inch full HD display with accessories like a keyboard, stylus, a stand, and many others. In terms of processing power, the Surface Phone is expected to come in three different versions: an entry-level model with 32GB of internal storage and 3GB RAM, a mid-range model with 128GB of internal storage and 6GB RAM and a high-end model with a massive 500GB internal storage and 8GB RAM. The first one is said to pack 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, while the midrange Surface Phone will offer 6 GB RAM and 128 GB of storage capacity.

Since Intel has thrown the towel in as far as its mobile processor business is concerned, the device is likely to be powered either by a Snapdragon 830 chipset or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821.

It was originally thought that the Surface Phone will have a strong resemblance with the Surface tablet, featuring an aluminum and magnesium body. Continuum support, USB Type-C connection and liquid cooling technology are also expected to be on board.

The price range of the Microsoft Surface Phones 2016 is likely to remain between $700-$1100. It remains to be seen whether or not the hotly anticipated Windows phone will get a 2016 release date.
