Microsoft Surface phone scheduled for early 2016 release

Microsoft logoWhile Microsoft is still working on Lumia branded handsets, the company is rumored to be looking at expanding the popularity of its Surface brand by developing a Microsoft Surface Phone. It's quite a turnaround from a marketing standpoint considering that just before the Surface Pro 3 became a rousing success, the Microsoft Surface brand was not connecting with tablet buyers.

The Microsoft Surface handset is reportedly in the prototype stage and is known as the "Juggernaut Alpha." That happens to be a code name that dates back to 2012, in reference to an earlier Surface phone being developed by Microsoft. According to a report published today, the new Surface phone is being scheduled for an early 2016 release, as Microsoft is still working on the unannounced Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950 XL.

The Microsoft Surface phone is rumored to feature a Gorilla Glass 4 protected 5.5-inch Clearback AMOLED display, with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. An Intel Atom X3 SoC powers the phone, carrying a quad-core CPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB/128GB of internal storage. On back is a 21MP camera. An 8MP snapper adorns the front of the phone, carrying a Zeiss wide angle lens. The handset will have a unibody build made from Aluminum-magnesium, and will offer wireless charging capabilities. According to the rumor, the Surface phone will feature a Pen similar to the S Pen used on the Samsung Galaxy Note series.
