After the failure of Microsoft Lumia series, the company now has done a great amount of research to build a new smartphone which will meet the expectations of users. Now latest rumors say that Microsoft is planning to go big with the upcoming Surface Phone.

Earlier this month, known leakster Evan Blass has uploaded a series of photos on his twitter account, which people initially supposed was the Microsoft Surface Phone. As exciting as the news sounded, it was also immediately clarified that the leaked images were not of the Microsoft Surface Phone.

Evan Blass pointed out that he did not announce anything and it was not the Microsoft Surface Phone. Although then it turned out to be a Windows phablet from Dell. Microsoft fans are in the dark about the device and have questioned if Microsoft is even working on the gadget at all or not.

Microsoft Surface Phone is the highly expected smartphone which is coming in 2017. If rumors are to true then the Microsoft Surface Phone will be equipped with Snapdragon 830 processor. Microsoft is gearing up to release the latest flagship, which is said to bring the Redmond-based software to the smartphone segment.

According to MobiPicker, there will be three variants of the Surface Phone. The first and cheapest will have 3 GB RAM with 32 GB internal storage. While the second variant will have 6 GB of RAM, with 128 GB internal storage and the most expensive variant will have an 8 GB RAM with 500 GB internal storage. The same high-end device could also have an installed Intel Atom X3 chipset.

A few days back an image leaked shows that the phone will be featuring a Snapdragon 830 processor with 5.7-inch display and a 2K resolution. Also the rear camera capacity has been noted as 20MP.

There are speculation regarding features like fingerprint reader, compass, barometer, proximity sensors and a 20-megapixel Carl Zeiss rear camera to have in Surface Phone. According to Tech Radar, the Surface Phone could have a display-embedded fingerprint scanner, which represents the character of next-gen smartphones.
