Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella tagged the latest device as the "ultimate mobile device" that carries irresistible features.

The Microsoft Surface phone is expected to debut sometime in 2017, but the exact time frame isn't known yet. Qualcomm recently announced that the devices run Snapdragon 835 processor that comes with a 30% increase in area efficiency, 27% improvement in performance and consumes up to 40% less power. Nadella's vague statements spark the latest Microsoft's Surface phone rumors that the company may be launching an upgraded Surface phone or overhaul a Nokia device. This lack of update in the Lumia line only bolstered the rumors that Microsoft is rebranding the line into the successful Surface product lineup. One of these devices has 6 GB of RAM and the other has 4GB of RAM but uses a 64-bit architecture.

It's said that the 6GB RAM model with S830 chipset is able to run x86 programs via Continuum.

"We have heard a lot about Microsoft working on X86-on-ARM64 emulation and this may be one of the implementations. Once connected via Continuum you can run any X86 apps", notes the publication.

"Therefore we stopped doing things that were me-too and started doing things, even if they are today very sub-scale, to be very focused on a specific set of customers who need a specific set of capabilities that are differentiated and that we can do a good job of", the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) CEO added.

The HP Elite X3 is a 3-in-1 that proposes to replace your smartphone, your desktop PC, and your laptop. It will be its first self-designed smartphone and will run a different version of Windows 10 Mobile called Redstone.

The most likely scenario is for Microsoft to combine the best of its three best devices, namely, the Surface Pro 4, Surface Book, and the Surface Studio. Most reports point to a 2017 release date for the smartphone.

Older rumors have also hinted at the Surface Phone packing in support for a fingerprint scanner, a 21 MP primary camera, an 8 MP selfie snapper and have multiple variants.

It remains to be seen if the much-awaited Microsoft handset will live up to expectations and be a game changer for the company.
