For over the past 40 years, Microsoft has dominated the world of technology. The company has been the numero-uno player in the world of software technology, and has now been changing the markets as they are tapping into the world of hardware. Microsoft happens to be a very new player in the hardware markets, and the company has done considerably well there, but are still lacking out on many things. The Surface Phone which releases later this year is expected to fill that void.
Microsoft’s Surface Phone has been a device about which the company has maintained a stunning silence, neither confirming nor denying the fact that the phone is coming out. It has now been suspected and later confirmed by sources on Reddit that the device is indeed going to release in the month of October, during the time Microsoft likes to show off their other hardware devices such as the Surface Pro 5 and Surface Book 2.
The Surface Phone would be the third device in the Surface series of devices, and is expected to be priced in from a range starting from $699 and going all the way up to $999. The device would run on a desktop-class processor, and is expected to come out in three variants -4GB RAM with 64GB storage, 6GB RAM with 128GB Storage, and 8GB RAM with 512GB storage.
The Surface Phone price-value combination is rather good, and while the device is on the expensive side, it is also a ‘business’ device, and has been made keeping the business class users in mind. The company is now working towards targeting more and more business users, and are loading the devices with productivity apps.
The Surface Phone is modeled on the lines of the Surface Mini, and has been expected to come out in to the markets with a Surface Dock and a Surface Pen. The Surface Phone is all set to change the market dynamics, and the company finally has a device which might help elevate the Windows Phone devices in the markets.
