Polish designer Bartlomiej Tarnowski revealed a sneak peak at the possible look of the highly anticipated Microsoft Surface Phone. The concept design highlights a wider screen with no bezels and physical home button. However, reports claimed that the Redmond-based multinational company may not release the new flagship device this 2017.
Tarnowski's concept design for the Microsoft Surface Phone sports a 6-inch display embedded with sensors. These sensors are expected to replace the physical home button. As it seems, the upcoming device is at par with the recent high-end mobile phones with screens that occupy the whole of the front panel and leave no space for bezels.
The new Microsoft Surface Phone renders from the Polish artist also includes a sleek and flat keyboard but there's no space allocated to hold a Surface Pen. It has a metallic housing that covers the overall structure of the supposed Windows 10-based mobile phone. It also contains a Type Cover support similar to the Microsoft Surface tablet series, Gizbot reported.
It is important to note, however, that the upcoming flagship device is suggested to arrive in three models namely consumer, business, and enthusiast as per a report by Market Exclusive. No specific details are revealed about the differences among these editions as well as the release date of the new Microsoft phone. But if speculations are to be considered, the Microsoft Surface Phone release date may not fall in 2017 and might be slated for the first quarter of 2018.
An earlier news by Windows Report claimed that the tech giant might launch a smartphone in 2017 but it won't be the much-awaited Microsoft Surface Phone. Nothing specific about this upcoming 2017 Microsoft device has been revealed as well. That said, consumers are advised to take speculations with skepticism until the company confirms the news.
