The elusive Surface Phone is perhaps the most coveted Windows 10 phone at the moment. Although it doesn’t even exists officially, there are already many rumors around it, ranging from specs to the release date.

Speaking of the Surface Phone’s release date, we’ve got some bad news for you. There will be no Surface Phone this year. The good news is that Microsoft will launch a new phone in 2017 after all.

The new Microsoft phone

The rumor was recently launched by a former employee of a Microsoft contractor. He also revealed that special phone-PC-like Windows 10 ARM devices will probably arrive in late 2018 or 2019. This brings new information to the table, as previous rumors suggested the Surface Phone could land sometime in late 2017 or early 2018.

Microsoft will release a new phone this year. Not a Surface phone. I don’t know what this new 2017-phone will be like, but I recently heard that a release is still planned. I’m a former employee of a Microsoft contractor.

About the Surface phone: Nobody knows what they are working on right now, but they don’t seem to be giving up. I don’t know why Microsoft doesn’t communicate anything about Windows 10 Mobile. Seems to be part of some strategy and so far everything Nadella touched has worked out very good for Microsoft.

Some special phone-pc-like Windows 10 ARM device will probably arrive in late 2018 or 2019. I have no more info on that, but I think Windows 10 ARM is much further away than some of us hope.

Why do I know this? I’ve worked for Microsoft as a contractor. Why can you believe me? You actually don’t and I don’t expect anybody to. For someone in such a low position it was hard to get any information at all, but this was basically everything I could hear.

What kind of Windows 10 phone do you think Microsoft will roll out this year?
