Microsoft patrons have been waiting for the Redmond-based company to announce its Microsoft Surface Phone this year. But then, the much-awaited release might be pushed back to 2019 because Windows 10 is not yet ready.
According to Daily Express, the highly-anticipated Microsoft Surface Phone has allegedly experienced a major delay. The said postponement with the device's launch date was due to Windows 10. It has been reported that Microsoft has switched its concentration back to the struggling Windows 10 Mobile platform.
This information was from Reddit and a user which was named zombieacc claimed that he is a former employee of a Microsoft contractor. He then stated that the Microsoft Surface Phone will not be arriving for some time this year. It further revealed that the upcoming Microsoft flagship smartphone will probably be unveiled in late 2018 or 2019.
Moreover, Droid Report has noted that this prediction contradicts previous news that the Microsoft Surface Phone will finally become available this year. It can be remembered that former reports suggested that the handset might have the same release date with Redstone 3 which is anticipated to make its first appearance this fall.
Meanwhile, there have been rumors stating that the Redstone 2 will be unveiled not just with Microsoft Surface Phone but also with other Surface devices in April. If the information from this tipser is established to be true, it would be a great frustration to the Microsoft patrons who are excited to have the Microsoft Surface Phone on their hands. Nevertheless, they can utilize this piece of information about the Windows Phone as a reference.
For the avid fans that are looking forward to the Microsoft Surface Phone release date, it still seems to be a long wait. Nonetheless, it is still advised to keep an eye for further announcements to be made by the Redmond-based company to be sure.
