Microsoft didn’t really place much focus on its Windows Phone devices this year so it was really surprising when Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO, claimed that Microsoft would soon produce “the ultimate mobile device,” which is most likely the Surface Phone.
Apparently, Pegatron has already kicked off production trials on Microsoft’s Surface Phone, according to The Commercial Times of Taiwan. Pegatron is already in charge of manufacturing the Surface Studio, which suggests an ongoing collaboration. This makes the rumor seem that much more believable.
The Surface Phone is reported to be coming with a Snapdragon 835 as well as a fingerprint scanner. It is also said to be able to support x86 apps on its ARM architecture in Continuum mode, a rumored feature of Windows 10.
Seeing that production trials of the Surface Phone are starting, it won’t be long until the phone actually shows up. However, there are bound to be leaks of the device prior to that which would provide way more insight than the mere renders we have now.
