New report claims the Surface Phone comes in three versions in 2017
Surface Phone launch to coincide with the Redstone 2 update in Spring 2017
We reported in March that Microsoft was planning to present its new wave of Windows devices including the rumored Surface phone in 2017 along with the second major update of the OS – Redstone 2. The update will bring many new features to the Windows OS and the upcoming devices will be designed to highlight these new functionalities.
Now a new report at Windows Central reveal some more information about the Surface Phone. According to the source, Microsoft may be developing three models: for mass consumers, for business users, and for enthusiasts.
There are no details about these three models, but they should differ in terms of hardware and of course – price. Microsoft already announced in 2015 that it would focus on three categories in the phone segment and we could expect fewer devices per year.
In fact, the chances to see another new Microsoft Lumia phone are pretty low now. Sources familiar with the matter believe that Microsoft is phasing out the Lumia brand and the upcoming phones will have a new name.
The rumored Surface phone is expected to include enhanced Continuum, Pen support, and a bunch of software improvements that are part of the Windows 10 Redstone 2 update.
