We don’t know what the battery will be, but it’s rumored that the Surface Phone will use a Snapdragon 835 chipset, which supports Quick Charge 4.0 for supposedly 20% faster charging than the current Quick Charge 3.0 system on many flagship phones. Tech Radar’s take: We’d expect a high-spec and high-quality camera on the Surface Phone, but don’t count on a 21MP one given the age of that rumor.Hottest leaks: The Surface Phone is bound to run Windows 10 Mobile, given that it’s a Microsoft device, and it’s expected to run full desktop apps through Continuum – a feature that lets you connect phones to a display and use them like a computer.Microsoft may also build a fingerprint scanner into the screen.That’s something we could also see on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and i Phone 8 if rumors are to be believed, but in Microsoft’s case the company has patented exactly that idea.Tech Radar’s take: The Surface Phone is sure to have flagship specs, which, if it launches this year, likely would mean a Snapdragon 835 chip and 4 or 6GB of RAM.Though if multiple models launch some will presumably have different specs.Throughout 2017 we kept seeing rumors that an announcement was around the corner, and yet we didn’t get even a hint of an actual release date.
Hottest leaks: Don’t expect the colorful plastic that Lumia handsets are known for, as the only remotely recent Surface Phone design rumors suggest it could have an aluminum-magnesium unibody – so metal in other words.If the Surface Phone does put a fingerprint scanner in the screen it could potentially have a smaller, slimmer body.There's also talk of a projector, which could project a desktop display (for use with Continuum) onto any flat surface, likely using a stand of some kind to angle the projection.The Surface Phone is the stuff of smartphone legend, with rumors of the device dating back to 2012.Since then it has popped in and out of the limelight, but just when we think it might be dead new leaks and rumors will emerge.
That might not actually be true though, the latest leak in a very long line of leaks, suggests that the long-rumored Surface Phone is in the final stage of testing.
