Microsoft Reportedly Working on New Windows Mobile Reboot


Tech fans and experts are expecting Microsoft to roll out the Surface Phone in three different models sometime this year. Further, with Microsoft seemingly putting an end to current RS3 development for mobile with the Feature 2 branch for current Windows Mobile devices, it appeared to be the nail in the coffin.

Last week on the Sams Report, we noted how Microsoft will likely re-enter the mobile space as this area is critical to the company's long-term success; it's in the second half of the episode that you can find here. Nadella stated that they will continue to be in the smartphone industry, but with a different approach than today's market leaders.

The upcoming Microsoft Surface Phone is said to likely replace the personal computers as the handset is reportedly created to target the corporate and business users.

All variants of the Surface Phone are expected to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processing chipset. Further reports also claim that the Surface Phone could be one that is equipped to support a number of PC programs. Meanwhile, the lower-ender variant is believed to be available at $700, while the higher-end variant may be priced at $1,100, Market Exclusive reported.
