Microsoft Surface phone release date rumors suggest its early arrival, Lumia to become history: Update

Microsoft hasn’t made any formal announcement in this regard, but the tech world is agog with rumors that the Redmond based tech giant is all set to launch a new line of smartphone, disbanding Lumia line of handsets.

Rumors in the tech world are essentially not without basis. Most of the time rumors turn out to be hundred percent true. The recently launched Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge were launched merely two days ago. But if you are a regular tech blog reader, you were well aware of all the specs with which the top Android handsets were launched with one or two exceptions.

The same usually happens in the case of iconic smartphones from Apple, iPhones. For months we tend to discuss rumors one after the other, many of which are actually circulated in the media by tech giant and its associates. And the finished product when it arrives has really no surprise quotient.

So, while Microsoft may be yet to speak a word about the new line of the handset, the tech world is precisely very sure about the impending launch of the Surface smartphones. Several reports have claimed that Microsoft has been trying its best to release a high quality smartphone, which can challenge Apple iPhone and several Android-run smartphones.

There is no denying the fact that all these rumors cannot be without basis. Last year, Microsoft’s Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Chris Capossela had said that the company is working on a new smartphone. Chris had claimed at that time that the new smartphone from Microsoft would be a “breakthrough”. Chris also confirmed that this device will not feature the Lumia branding. Some reports have claimed that Microsoft is getting ready to launch the Surface Phone sometime halfway through 2016. Some rumours hinted that the device may release in June or July.

Not much is clear about the specifications. But the handset will come with top of the line specs. When it comes to the specifications, it looks that the Surface Phone will be a powerful device, based on the kind of specs that Windows 10 mobile (or just Windows Phone) needs. The most recent Windows Phone flagships – the Lumia 950 XL and the Lumia 950 have advanced specs. It is expected that Microsoft could be going back to Intel besides Qualcomm for the Surface phone. It is learned that the company would use an Atom processor that was released in 2015. The Surface Phone could come in two variants – one with the Intel Atom X3 processor and one with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor.
