Microsoft Surface Phone is one of the highly anticipated and rumored smartphone, close to the Microsoft Surface Pro 5. Since it didn't appear at the 2017 MWC, reports and evidence are hinting that the upcoming smartphone is on the way.

No one really knows when Surface Phone is will come out or it will come out in total or not. However, we surely know that it's on the way. As back in November, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told the Australia Financial Review that Microsoft is currently working on the "ultimate mobile device" and also admitted that the company "missed the mobile boom". Although that's not confirmation of the "Surface Phone", but it's clear proof on a new mobile from Microsoft is on the way.

Back in January last year, it came out that Microsoft had obtained the following domain name: surfacephone.com. The domain right now redirects to Microsoft's homepage, but looking at the Microsoft's existing naming conventions for devices (Surface Book, Surface Pro, etc), it looks obvious what the intentions of the tech giant may be. However, companies often buy up relevant domain names just to stop competitors bagging them, so the name "Surface Phone" may never actually be used, according to Trusted Reviews.

If rumors and reports are to be believed then Microsoft Surface Phone is anticipated to come out with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display. The display will be wearing 1440 x 2560 pixels in Quad-HD resolution.

The upcoming Microsoft surface phone is also expected to have either Intel or Snapdragon 835 CPU processor. The camera elements might be as an 8-megapixel front camera and a 21-megapixel rear camera. As far as storage is concerned, the new Microsoft Surface phone is said to offer 128 GB capacity with 4GB of RAM which will be expandable through microSD slot.
