It’s becoming apparent that almost every decision that Microsoft is making, in terms of the Lumia, are providing hints to the arrival of the Surface Phone.

This all began late 2016 when Microsoft removed the Lumia devices from the market. Just a couple of days back, Microsoft had shut down several Lumia-related social media pages, including the popular Lumia Photography Instagram account, that was deleted without any notice.

Microsoft’s way of removing the Lumia, slowly but surely, seems to suggest that the Surface phone would soon be arriving. The Surface Phone was speculated to be arriving late this year and it will stand as a premium flagship device that will rival with the best models from Android and Apple.

The Surface Phone will most likely be emulating the success of the Surface Pro tablets, since these two devices are sharing the same name. Also, this device is not expected to be coming in huge numbers.
