The Surface Phone will be the ultimate mobile device
Rumors surrounding the Surface Phone originated in 2012 and various features were reported even back then. Even the Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at Microsoft confirmed plans of a new premium Windows phones for both consumers and businesses.
Past rumors said the Surface Phone would be unveiled by the end of the year, but it turns out that Microsoft has delayed its launch until 2018 or 2019.
The latest rumors detail a Surface Phone running an Andromeda operating system will be revealed in the second half on 2018. We already know the company has been working on developing the new operating system.
OEMs will launch their Windows Phones as well
According to sources, Microsoft partners including HP, Lenovo, and Dell will launch their own Windows Mobile devices running Andromeda, so all this will be very interesting. Both the Surface Phone and third-party Windows Phones running Andromeda will probably arrive if everything goes as planned.
We still don’t know anything about Andromeda but despite that, it really looks like 2018 will be an exciting year for both Microsoft and the company’s fans — and we’re looking forward to all these releases.
