Throughout the years when we think of smartphones, we always assume the newest one will either be an iPhone or a Galaxy. This isn’t always the case though. How can a company as old as Microsoft compete with all the younger tech-savvy corporations when it comes to the mobile phone market? There is an app for everything, a phone with the best camera to date, and so many gigabytes of storage on these modern phones. It seems that there would be no point to try and get ahead of Apple or Google with the phones they are releasing these days. Can Microsoft catch up in the game?
Remember how I said Apple will be releasing the iPhone 7 at the IFA 2016 press conference on the 7th? Well Microsoft has decided to release the Surface Phone at IFA 2016 as well. Perhaps their phone is better and they want to steal the spotlight from Apple this week. There have been rumors speculating the release date to be in October, but others saying it won’t be until 2017. The phone is supposedly coming out in three models. A 32GB, 128GB, and a 500GB version of the phone. You will definitely have plenty of storage space on the Surface Phone. The phone will either be a 5.5 inch AMOLED display or a 5.7 inch display. There isn’t much information on the camera for the phone, but it will most likely be great. People also can’t seem to agree which processor might be used. The most popular processor rumors for the Surface Phone are Snapdragon 830, Snapdragon 821, and Atom 64-bit CPU.
