Tech fans and experts have long been expecting Microsoft to take the wraps off its highly anticipated Surface Phone. Despite that, the Redmond, Washington-based tech titan remains mum on the issue. Now, recently surfaced reports suggest that the tech giant is expected to foray into the handset universe later this year with its newly-revamped mobile device.

Although the tech company has not even confirmed whether the smartphone will be called the Surface Phone, rumors and speculations gave fans an idea as to what can be expected from Microsoft’s Upcoming Smartphone.

In an interview with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella earlier this year, the CEO confirmed that the tech giant was, in fact, working on a new mobile device.

The Microsoft CEO referred to it as the ultimate mobile device ever coming from the side of the company. Nadella made it known that the tech company will continue to carry its regime forward in the mobile device industry, but their upcoming smartphone won't be anything currently expected by today's industry leaders. Wherein, Microsoft’s highly anticipated Surface Phone is going to be rather unique by nature.

Surface Phone will be a foldable device

Meanwhile, reports are mounting up on the internet claiming that the tech giant’s upcoming smartphone will be a foldable mobile device.

The foldable feature stemmed from the leaked patent that the Redmond based tech giant applied. The patent showed that the hardware can be folded to a size of a smartphone and can be expanded into a tablet.

Smartphone’s specs

As far as the specs and features of the Surface Phone are concerned, the upcoming smartphone will come along with the latest Windows 10 Continuum.

Users can connect their respective smartphones smoothly to other devices running the same technology. Microsoft’s mobile device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. If this feature turns out to be true, the Surface Phone will fall in direct rivalry with other leading smartphone brands with the same processor, such as Google Pixel 2, Nokia 9, as well as Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.

Furthermore, the smartphone could feature a dual rear camera setup and is going to support modern-day technologies, such as Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). The Surface Phone will also arrive with Win32 support, which means the device will be able to run .exe apps. The upcoming smartphone will boast a Surface Pen support. Microsoft’s much awaited handset will arrive in two variants, dubbed as the Surface Slovenia and Surface Peking.
