The Microsoft Surface Phone 2017 is one of the most anticipated smartphones this year. The Redmond-based company remained tight-lipped on the details of the highly rumored device. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella clearly said that the company has refuses to rush things and aiming only for impressive specs for their touted "ultimate mobile device."
The fresh images of the alleged Microsoft Surface Phone leaked on Weibo, a Chinese social media site. The leaked images has caused a massive stir in the online community as they were clear enough to reveal some interesting physical features of the forthcoming Microsoft smartphone but drop no light on the possible release date in 2017.
As per leaked images by Nokia Power User via Weibo, the device will be featuring a slim brick-like structure and snow-hued cover on the back with a very large circular camera having Carl Zeiss tag on it.
From the images it was concluded that the Microsoft Surface Phone will be a Phablet Sized phone. Though it's difficult to conclude, given the lack of scale, the phone seems to be a bit bigger than expected, adjacent on phablet sizes rather than standard smartphone. However it is considerably slim.
The device will feature grille speakers at both the top and bottom and also boast of a large camera with a Carl Zeiss tag, which already promises high-definition images. Microsoft engraved near the flash.
Other visible features include three capacitive touch screen buttons, the standard "back", "home" and "recent" options plus an earphone jack at the top. Best guess puts the port at 3.5mm. At the bottom is a USB Type-C port for charging, file transfer, and more, reports IBTimes.
The leaked images are genuine but officially Microsoft has not released any statement on it. Microsoft is expected to wait until the second half 2017, if not in the first quarter of 2018 to announce the new Surface phone.
