Microsoft Surface Phone is one of the highly anticipated flagship from the giant tech company, alongside the Microsoft Surface Pro 5. Since it did not show up at the recently concluded 2017 MWC, reports are now pointing to an October release.
Prior to the 2017 Mobile World Congress, the Microsoft Surface Phone has been highly speculated to make its grand appearance in the said event. Despite no official statements, many still believed that the said event is the best avenue to display the new smartphone as the event is known for popular phone launches. Unfortunately, Microsoft did not make the expected launch of the new handset.
Now, reports are saying the upcoming Microsoft Surface Phone will most likely delay until spring 2017. Apparently, the new handset will still need to wait for its impressive component, Windows 10 Creators Update. PCAdvisor predicts that the new handset will probably come out in the upcoming Microsoft's annual event in October.
