For those masochists who like to run Windows phones there is good news on the horizon, three Surface phones are due to arrive some time in 2017. The market segmentation is different from the competition, instead of offering curved screens or a different size they will sell consumer, business and enthusiast models. That is an interesting way to separate your products and with the amount that usual phone usage has changed an Enthusiast model actually makes sense for those who spend more time gaming and watching HD content on their phones than on their laptops.
The Inquirer has heard rumours that the phones will have a 5.5" QHD AMOLED screen, an Intel Atom CPU, 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of local storage, though one hopes the enthusiast model gets a little boost in specs.
"MICROSOFT'S RUMOURED Surface Phone reportedly won't see the light of day until next year, but will arrive in three versions when it does."
