The rumored Surface Phone by Microsoft may not save the Windows 10 Mobile ecosystem until next fall. According to the latest reports, Microsoft has bigger plans for the new Surface All In One device, which is expected to be unveiled during an event held later this year, so it’s very unlikely to see the Surface Phone in stores in 2016. Mary Jo Foley reported that “Surface Phone, if it does materialize, could be considerably later, sources say.”

Initially, Microsoft was planning to launch a flagship device in 2014, but the company encountered issues with components and suspended the project. But there was a plan B and Microsoft started on the wrong foot, recruiting an OEM (HTC) to assist them with the production of a powerful phone that could run on Windows Phone 8.1.1. Then, much later, Microsoft released Windows 10 Mobile, messing up its plans with the flagship which was slated to be released in the fall of 2016.

Previously, the Surface Phone was rumored to come with an Intel x86 processor, but there were some problems with Intel who had to shut down all mobile development. The next attempt to release the device was supposed to bring Windows 10 Mobile’s Anniversary Updates’s new capabilities to it and take advantage of the new powerful hardware.

The Surface Phone is rumored to come with a 5.2-inch AMOLED 2K display, three variants of RAM (3GB, 6GB and 8GB), an Intel Kaby Lake or Snapdragon 821 processor, and  Windows 10 Redstone. The main camera is expected to support 21MP, while the front camera could have a resolution of 8MP. The speculated price of the Surface Phone is $1099.
