Recent rumors suggest that the software giant will reveal a Surface Phone during its Windows 10 Hardware event on October 6th.
Microsoft has scheduled its Windows 10 Hardware event on October 6th. As expected, rumours are taking over the world of internet, preparing us even for the first transformer in history.
However, the facts point to a much more practical and realistic revelation, given that the company is craving to get back to the smartphone industry.
For starters, let’s all take a deep breath and agree to something that we all have been knowing for a long time, but only a handful of people dares to admit openly; Microsoft’s Lumia series was a failure, even though Nokia – the once world leader in the smartphone industry – was involved in the manufacturing process.
The whole ecosystem was not enough to support and give a sufficient boost to all the services and apps that had to go against the equivalent of Apple’s and Google’s operating systems and services.
Apple is currently attracting the spotlight with its new iOS 9, as well as the latest addition to the iPhone family, the 6S and the 6S Plus. Google, on the other hand, is also developing the new Nexus phone and making slight, but notable improvements on its Android OS.
So, how could Microsoft answer to its two arch rivals, you ask?
Well even though it is just a rumour for now, when you think about it, it makes perfect sense. The company could easily surprise us with a Surface Phone. Its Surface Pro tablet line-up has met great success – and for a good reason we may add –, so combine that with the Windows 10 Mobile, which is set to be unveiled on the same day, and you get the perfect product at the perfect time.
According to the same rumours, this Surface Phone could easily prove to be a hard to beat challenge, even for the iPhone 6S Plus or recently launched Galaxy S6 Edge+. Whispers brought by the wind talk about a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution, a 64-bit Intel processor and 4GB of RAM, which might be the greatest proof that Microsoft visions the Continuum in the upcoming Windows 10 Mobile platform.
That would essentially allow users to fit the power of a Windows 10 PC into a 5.5-inch handset.
