Microsoft Surface Phones are in the news for quite a long while now. And news has kept on coming regarding the probable specs and features of the upcoming device from Microsoft. The latest news has revealed that a patent has been found which could well be the design of the upcoming device from Microsoft. And one of the features that have grabbed the attention of many is the slot for the new Surface Pens.
The new patent has revealed that there is a slot for a stylus in the top of the Microsoft Surface Phones. But very little has been revealed regarding the functionality of the Surface pens. It is believed that any Universal Windows app will enable the proper usage of the Surface pen. Among the top features that are going to be made available if the Surface pen is made available to the Microsoft Surface Phones, the list includes the likes of Screen Sketch, Sketchpad and Sticky pad.
But there are also different interpretations that have kept coming in. Windows Central has reported that the patent might just not be the one for Microsoft Surface Phones at all. It could be a completely different device. And also the Surface pen slot that has been noticed in the patent of the Microsoft Surface Phones could be the one for the 3.5 mm headphone jack. Many others have predicted that Microsoft will perhaps be doing away with the physical headphone jack and enable an audio output via USB-C ports. This feature, if turns out to be true, will invite a great competition with the Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S8 both of which are slated to be coming out in the upcoming year.
Other than this, the striking features of the Microsoft Surface Phones are going to be the Intel processor which is going to make the smartphone really fast as reported by Techvicity. Also, it is supposed to be coming out with a RAM of either 6 GB or 8 GB coupled with an internal memory of 512 GB. Besides this, the 20-MP rear camera is reported to be featuring a CARL ZEISS lens besides an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
Nothing has been revealed regarding the release dates of the Microsoft Surface Phones and it could be in the first quarter of the year 2017. And we have to keep on waiting in order to know more about this new device from Microsoft. But if we go by the reports, as CEO of Microsoft Satya Nadella has said, we are set to get the “most ultimate mobile device” once the Microsoft Surface Phones come out in the market. And for that, we have to keep on waiting for a bit longer.
