For over a year now, leaks and speculation have been circulating around the tech news community about the fabled unicorn known as the Surface Phone. The latest rumor is that the much-anticipated device will be released early 2018, setting up a battle against the iPhone 8. These rumors are further backed by Reddit user zombieacc who has stated that he was a former Microsoft employee and confirmed that they are intending to release a new phone in 2018 running Windows 10.
The most interesting and pervasive rumor about the Surface Phone is that it’s supposed to have a foldable screen, giving it a distinct advantage over the iPhone 8. The foldable screen rumors appear to be confirmed through Microsoft patents as well as the image Microsoft accidentally release in July in an ad on both their Twitter and Facebook pages. The idea of the foldable screen, how it will function and how it could be used has tech enthusiasts excited and grasping for any leak or rumor they can get their hands on.
Although Microsoft still has not confirmed any rumors about the Surface Phone, CEO Satya Nadella has stoked the rumors by saying they are making phones that “may not look like phones that are there today” and “a phone that can even be a desktop.” Nadella also told the Australian Financial Review, “We will continue to be in the phone market not as defined by today’s market leaders, but by what it is that we can uniquely do in what is the most ultimate mobile device.”
