The tech giant’s phone is believed to be released next year
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) is rumored to have been working on the Surface Phone for quite some time now. However, some recently surfaced rumors now suggest that the phone is in development and will be revealed by next year.
According to Windows Central, the company will release not one, but three different variants of the highly anticipated phone.
Additionally, each variant is designed to cater to a different target audience; to be more precise, an audience which includes enthusiasts, business users and consumers. However, there are no details about the phones’ specifications and how much each device will cost. But taking the Surface Book and Pro products in mind, it is safe to assume that the new Surface Phones too will target the high end segment.
Seeing how poorly the Lumia lineup is doing, it is extremely important that Microsoft exceeds expectations with the rumored Surface Phone. Also taking into account how much is being invested in developing Windows OS, a new phone may be in works, although there is no guarantee that it could be a Surface Phone or not.
