Microsoft Surface Phone Must Not Be Lumia 2.0

Consider Screen Size Options

Older reports have mentioned that Microsoft might just be waiting for Intel's Kaby Lake launch before they can release new Surface devices. It is pretty undeniable that even though Microsoft hasn't really been at the top when it comes to smartphones, people can't deny how successful its Surface line is. The Surface Phone would also be the flawless 3 in 1 device that Microsoft said they want to work on.

While Microsoft's representatives failed to elaborate on the actual sales figures, the company alleges "more people are switching from Macs to Surface than ever before", adding how it believes that many MacBook Pro fans were disappointed with the new machine's pricing and feature set.

Microsoft has not yet officially stated what to expect from Surface Pro 5 or when it will be released. With that said, Kaby Lake's end of 2016 arrival could be enough of a hint that the Surface Pro 5 could be coming in Q1 of next year. This strengthens the hunches that Microsoft will unveil the Surface Pro 5 in 2017.

A higher Surface Pro 4 configuration with the same Intel Core i5 processor and Windows 10 Pro OS, but 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage space now retails for $1,019.95, allowing for savings of $280 compared with the regular price of $1,299.99. Additionally, a 4K screen and USB ports can also be expected. Microsoft's lack of a Surface Pro refresh this year makes it easy to assume that they will be releasing something this 2017.

Furthermore, recent rumors have hinted that Microsoft intends on introducing a revamped Surface Pen in the Surface Pro 5 which will be created to recharge directly from a port built into the two-in-one hybrid. With that said, next year might already be the right time to release a totally brand new edition of the Surface Book. And that not only is the machine now available in Australia and New Zealand, but it will also be released in a number of other, worldwide markets, including the U.K., China, France, by the end of the first quarter of 2017.

Despite Microsoft's lack of luck in the smartphone department, the company is able to produce great tablets in the form of Surface Pros. The company hasn't talked about it yet and the only reason it is being talked about is because of rumors and unofficial leaks.
