Microsoft may be working on Surface smartphone

Microsoft’s Surface tablets have not been that popular around the world but they have definitely earned a reputation for being nice, powerful and sturdy devices. What about a Surface smartphone, then, especially now when Microsoft has all the tools and knowledge to create such a device after the Nokia purchase? Rumors of such a device surfaced a few years ago but so far such a device is nowhere to be seen.

Well, this can soon change. Online rumors suggest that a Surface smartphone is in the works and that the device will soon debut around the world. In fact the process has advanced so much the tech specs of the device are now available and if they are true then the first Surface smartphone will likely be a powerful device.

The device is reported to carry the Juggernaut Alpha code name and it will supposedly come with a large 5.5-inch ClearBlack Gorilla Glass 4 display at QHD resolution. The smartphone will be powered by an Intel Atom X3 processor with 64-bit extensions and it will also have 4 GB of RAM. There will be two cameras as well – in the back users will find a 21 MP PureView Zeiss camera, while up front there will be an 8 MP Zeiss camera. As to storage the Surface smartphone will have 64 GB and 128 GB versions with both of them equipped with a microSD card slot for expansion. The chassis of the smartphone will be metallic and the device will also sport a Surface pen, USB-C ports, wireless charging and very likely Windows 10 Mobile on-board.

Of course all this is just a rumor so do not get too excited. Then again Microsoft might surprise everyone on the smartphone market, especially now, when the company needs to make Windows 10 Mobile a well-known and widely used smartphone OS.
