Here is the thing, Microsoft never actually confirm that they are working on the Surface Phone but a lot of people seems to believe that Microsoft will be releasing one soon.
Initial rumors suggest that we will only be seeing the new smartphone from Microsoft in 2017 but new rumors are now saying that Microsoft might be planning to announce a new smartphone at IFA happening next month and that the smartphone will be release in October.
Many believe that the release of the Surface Phone will help increase Microsoft presence in the smartphone industry since their tablet were a huge success. A previous leak has also suggested that the Surface Phone could be coming in with a totally new design as well.
Of course, it might end up being another Lumia smartphone or maybe Microsoft doesn’t really have a smartphone to annouce. Let’s wait and see.
