Microsoft will release three variants of the Surface Phone in 2017. Now, the company has accidentally leaked some information about the phone.
Details about the phone have surfaced on Microsoft’s Minimum hardware requirement page that says that Surface Phone will be powered by codenamed MSM8998, which is the codename for Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 830. This processor was listed under SoCs that supports Windows 10 Mobile. The phone is expected to have 8GB memory and use Samsung’s 10nm production process.
Earlier reports had said that Surface Phone will come in three variants, each aimed at a different type of user. The company will apparently release a consumer, business and a prosumer/enthusiast model of the Surface Phone in 2017. The Surface phone is supposed to be built by the same Microsoft engineering team that built the Surface and Surface Book which is led by Panos Panay.
