Windows 10 Mobile in its current form is a huge mess, but Microsoft is not giving up and is planning to revitalize its mobile ambitions with new smartphones in 2017. Why 2017 you ask? Well, reports are saying the software giant is gunning for the Surface Phone, and it should launch some time in April of that year.

The boys over at Windows Central got wind of some interesting information that suggests Microsoft is hoping to launch the Surface Phone come April of 2017. The publication also seem to explain why there’s no love for Windows 10 Mobile in 2016. Apparently, the plan here is to launch the Surface Phone alongside the Redstone 2 update. This update is expected to bring some well needed features and improvements to the platform overall.

Interestingly enough, the report claims Microsoft is also working on Redstone 3 for Windows 10. The thing is, the update should bring several mobile related innovations to the forefront, so it would appear as if the year 2017 is the year Windows on mobile will finally feel like a platform worth our monetary and timely investment.

We find it difficult that Microsoft could be planning a Redstone 3 update at this time seeing as Redstone 1 is still being worked on, and work on Redstone 2 has not yet begun. Still, anything is possible as Microsoft prepares to compete with Google and Apple after years of disappointments.

What about the Surface Phone and what should we expect from that?

We’re expecting the Surface Phone to be the most secure smartphone in the world. When it comes down to productivity, no other device should compare because Microsoft is king of the productivity apps that helps people get work done. We also want this phone to be the beginning of the rise of Windows on mobile and not the nail in its coffin, but Microsoft should already know this by now.
