What was once rumored and debunked by Microsoft a few years back is hitting the rumor mill again lately: we could still see a Microsoft Surface Phone.

Reliable sources told Nokia Power User that there may be one or more Surface Phone prototypes out there with similar specs and using the Snapdragon 835 processor, Qualcomm’s next premium tier SoC. The phone will also supposedly come in two variants, one with 6GB of RAM and the other with 4GB of RAM. If those rumors are true, having the Snapdragon 835 SoC will provide better battery life, a significant performance improvement, and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0. The 6GB variant will be able to run x86 apps through Continuum, but the 4GB variant will not.

As mentioned, Nokia Power User trusts their sources but any or all of the information can change in a final released product.

This info comes from one of our trusted sources with good accuracy. But Companies have been known to launch different configurations than seen on protos in retail products. Also features vary with OS versions and final release OS version may or may not have all the features seen in protos.

Other rumors indicate that the Surface Phone handsets will come with a 5.5″ quad HD display, run Windows 10, run apps through Continuum support, and possible have the 3-in-1 form factor so it can connect to a keyboard and stylus much like the Surface Pro 4. More rumors will most likely surface (pun intended) later on when the time comes for the device’s rumored release in April 2017 alongside the next major update of Windows 10.

You already know this, but I still have to advise you to take all this with a grain of salt until there is some kind of confirmation or announcement provided by the tech giant.
