While Microsoft remains mum regarding its highly anticipated Surface Phone, the tech company’s patents showed some few exciting ideas. The Redmond based tech titan claimed that if they returned to the smartphone industry, their device would be an ultimate handset that will not look like any other smartphones in the market. This is believed to be the vision of Microsoft for the upcoming Microsoft Surface Phone.

The company’s recently emerged patent filing, which was filed back on February 26, appears to corroborate that vision. The thing that is being discussed in the document is a double-sided handset with a metallic cover and a metal build.

The metallic made of the smartphone also works as an antenna. Microsoft Surface Phone’s design seems to prevent detuning when users touch the device’s antenna.

Phone Arena reported that as detuning causes signal interference, tech firms always blamed users of incorrectly holding the handset. However, Antti Karilainen is the patent’s author and an antenna, radio frequency expert. Karilainen also developed Microsoft’s innovations, such as different metallic designs for smartphones, antennas for future form factors, as well as antenna sharing of different radio systems.

Nonetheless, Microsoft always stated that the tech giant’s focal point is on adding features and innovations that improve the usability and performance of a mobile device in opposition to slimming down bezels as well as hardware’s minor upgrades.

According to Blorge, the Surface Phone is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 system on chip (SoC), and it will come along with no less than 4GB of RAM, which is more than what average smartphones are offering at the moment.

The 64GB of internal storage can be used to stash its user’s videos, favorite music, and photos. Also, the Surface Phone is expected to be a foldable mobile device.
