So this suggests that Surface Phone probably have totally 3 different screens and screen sizes but the leaks have been made that it typically consists of a 5.7” inch screen. The screens can be opened and folded again into its place which would help the user to switch into the smartphone to tablet modes with an absolute seamless aesthetic appearance on its sides giving it an Edge-to-edge look.

On the connectivity front, the smartphone might sport USB-C Type. It is also a possibility that one of the sides transfers into a keypad and the other into a V-shaped kickstand for the phone. The flagship would be also equipped with a stylus for a better ergonomy. Surface phone would also consist of a lot of speaker grills which would go like two at the front and two at the back by the looks of it, also at the top and the bottom. Surface Phone is expected to be a device made out of all-new metal body stuffed with Qualcomm’s brand-new Snapdragon 835 chipset which has Qualcomm’s first 10 nm processor. It is clearly far more efficient than Qualcomm’s earlier chipset series which are present in today’s top selling phones in the world.
