According to some Chinese leaks, Microsoft’s Windows phone’s successor may be called the Surface Mobile. Check out the leaked potential features of the upcoming mobile device below.
Surface Mobile features
The leaked details were initially found by a Twitter user named WalkingCat and it seems that this Microsoft source is very reliable judging by previous tips revealed.
After the Chinese leaks were translated, it was revealed that Surface Mobile would support the Surface Pen and that it would work with a Snapdragon processor. Also, it seems that it will also sport a kickstand that can open as far as 185 degrees, similar to the Surface PC and the Surface Pro.
A new Microsoft feature for a device that will be called Onto Table seems to point to a built-in projector capable of displaying a full desktop via Continuum. The Surface Mobile’s battery is rumored to be able to last for an hour when the mobile device is running in this particular mode.
More codenames are dropped
Surface Peking and Surface Slavonia codenames also appear in the leaks, but we don’t know for sure what they could mean. Both of them are used alongside the term “terminal” and we can assume that they could be related to some hardware similar to the Microsoft Display Dock the company uses for its Continuum functionality.
Another codename is Project Andromeda and is just as ambiguous as the previous ones. It might refer to a new range of Surface Mobile devices, but it could also mean something related to the new OS that should be an evolved Windows 10 Mobile.
Even if there is no official statement by the company regarding this, we’re pretty excited about what the future for Microsoft’s mobile market holds. .
