What do you do when you have no new phone renders and concepts? You have a look at the leaks floating online, such as the brand new one for the Microsoft Surface Phone, shown below.
Coming straight out of China via Baidu and published by user “nokibar”, this seems like a legit leak, because the source also published photos of the cancelled Lumia 850 and they were very believable. There seems to be an USB Type C port at the bottom and a Surface Touch Cover-style accessory, that seeems to have a leather back.
The smartphone is said to be launched in April 2017 in 3 versions: one with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, one that packs 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage and finally an ultra high end unit with 8 GB RAM and 500 GB storage. Seeing how Microsoft mistakenly listed Snapdragon 830 on the support list for Windows 10 Mobile, so that’s probably the CPU inside.
I also expect a kickass back camera… This may just be the last hail mary or swan song of Microsoft Mobile.
