It is priced at a whopping $5,600 but considering how much Microsoft was asking for their Surface Tables, it is decidedly cheaper.
Even though Microsoft hasn't confirmed whether the Surface Phone is placed on the wall, there are reasons to be believed that Surface Phone could be released any time after December 2016.
The Microsoft Surface Phone variants will be Basic, Advanced, and Pro, The News Independent reported.
It can be noted that a recent announcement from Microsoft has affirmed that the company has stopped making more Surface Pro 3 family tablets amid the shortage in supply. We investigate the Surface Pro 5 release date, price and specs rumours plus our expert predictions.
Microsoft could be gearing up to expand its Surface range with four new devices by the end of 2017, according to a picture taken by an Indian developer visiting the firm's Redmond campus in Washington state. With problems on the horizon to get the Surface Pro 5 out, this should be a viable solution particularly for businesses.
That being said, if you are after a slightly more stylish version of the Surface Table, French company Kineti has created one of their own called the La Table Kineti.
According to Intel's release notes for this update (PDF, 400KB) this driver update will benefit power users and gamers.
The report mentioned above, which cites manufacturing sources in China, suggests the Surface Pro 5 will come with a 2K screen but there will also be a 4K model for those willing to splash the cash.
Both could also have a microSD card and a USB type-C connectivity and liquid cooling technology. The first will come with 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal memory, while the second version will sport a powerful 6GB RAM and 256GB of built-in storage. This has to do with the expected debut of the Windows 10 Anniversary update which would have been ideal for the Surface Pro 5.
