Possible proof of the Microsoft Surface Phone?

We’ve known for quite some time that Microsoft is working on a new high-end Windows 10 Mobile device, with rumors pointing to the device being the long-awaited Surface Phone. Until now, though, Microsoft has never directly alluded to its development.

While the software giant hasn’t confirmed the new Windows 10 Mobile device, recent statements seem to have done so in our eyes. To us, Microsoft is indeed preparing something big for Windows 10 Mobile fans, and we are likely to know more about it before the end of the year or sometime within 2017.

During the Build Tour in London earlier this month, Microsoft Corporate VP of Windows Kevin Gallo made it very clear the company is supporting its mobile platform to the fullest:

“Windows Phone is fully supported. We’re fully behind it. We’re not abandoning the phone,” he was quoted as saying. “There’s really no change in what our direction or strategy is with respect to releasing the Windows Phone software.”

Gallo went on to add that Microsoft is leading this push with high-end mobile devices, and while he didn’t elaborate on any details, the company’s mobile ambitions are clear:

“We’re really aligned to what we’ve done on the Windows desktop which is we’ll lead with some high end and category innovation like we’ve done with Surface, and OEMs will go and build the breadth of the catalog.”

We can safely say Microsoft is making moves to bring the Surface strategy to mobile. Expect a high-end Windows 10 Mobile device with an innovative design, something for OEMs to follow or even surpass if they can. It could very well be the Surface Phone seeing as the brand is well known and could be used to give Windows 10 Mobile the boost it so desperately needs.

Nothing much is known about this device’s specifications. However, rumors point to it having a Snapdragon 830 processor, something surely to look forward to.
